Christmas fundraising campaign for a good cause
The partnership between Travian Games and the Stiftung Ambulantes Kinderhospiz München (Munich Children's Hospice), has existed for some time. It has become a tradition for the employees of Travian Games GmbH to raise funds for disadvantaged children and their families during the run-up to Christmas.
This year, Jörg Strathaus, CEO of Travian Games, was pleased to present EUR 5,400 to the AKM Foundation. During the ceremony to deliver the donations, which like last year took place virtually, he thanked the AKM Foundation staff for their dedicated work: "I want to thank you for your commitment. It is an honor and a pleasure for us to support you in this challenging work. Each year, I am delighted by the number of employees in our company who want to help you and who put us in the fortunate situation of doubling the donations to support a family for an entire year once again."
Since 2004, the Munich Children's Hospice Foundation has been assisting families with terminally and critically ill unborn babies, newborns, children, youths and young adults in Munich and throughout Bavaria. Since 2016, the AKM Foundation has also been taking care of severely ill parents of minors. The team comprising full-time doctors, psychologists, nurses and social workers is assisted by around 300 volunteers in crisis intervention, family support and public relations. The aim is to provide reliable support to these families during such difficult times and offer moments of safety, security and normality.
The fact that solidarity with people who are less fortunate or disadvantaged should not be taken for granted, especially in times of the pandemic, was emphasized by Eva-Maria Büttner, fundraiser for the AKM Foundation. She thanked Travian Games for this donation: "At the AKM Foundation, we are more than grateful to all the staff and executives of Travian Games GmbH for once again taking on a family sponsorship this year, giving hope to one of the families we look after. On behalf of this family, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your loyal support."
Bavaria's largest games company has been committed to the charity since 2016. In 2017, Travian Games took on a family sponsorship with the Munich Children's Hospice Foundation.
Travian Games would like to thank all employees who donated to this good cause and raised awareness for the AKM Foundation.
