Illegal Parking for a Good Cause

update texware donates 2300 Euro for the children‘s house »Sternstunden« in Kulmbach

At the update texware location in Kulmbach the few parking places for update members are repeatedly occupied by illegal parking offenders. For that reason a big sign informs about the due parking fee for »not-staff-members«. We were surprised about the lot of parking offenders up to now.

»We only want to grant a parking place for each of our employees, but not to get rich! Therefore information is printed on the tickets, saying that the complete amount is donated for a good cause«, Dr. Michael Schiffmann says.

In this way the impressive amount of 1.100 Euro accumulated, which we topped up to 2.300 Euro. In our baggage we also had small Santa-Clause-presents for each child in the children‘s home of the Geschwister-Gummi-Foundation in Kulmbach, whose staff members were filled with pleasure. The donation is destined for the Children‘s Trauma House of the Foundation. This children‘s home is for most severely traumatized children and is unique in Bavaria.
