Buschjost makes Christmas donation to the Ronald McDonald House Bad Oeynhausen: Donation instead of gifts

Torsten Bredthauer delivered the donation in person.

It’s almost become tradition at Buschjost GmbH to not give its customers and business partner’s expensive Christmas gifts and to instead use the money to support a worthy cause – this year, the company has made a donation to the Ronald McDonald House in Bad Oeynhausen.

The money will be well spent here: For the duration of their treatment, the Ronald McDonald House is home to 12 families with seriously ill children.

The Ronald McDonald House Bad Oeynhausen was opened in 2001 as a family centre for relatives of seriously ill children being treated at the Heart and Diabetes Centre North Rhine-Westphalia. Some 250 families stay here every year. The Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) sponsors the centre and has been active in Germany since 1987. During this time, the RMHC has built 17 Ronald McDonald Houses, which it also operates.

At the beginning of December, Head of Marketing, Torsten Bredthauer, delivered Buschjost’s donation in person and therefore had the opportunity to see firsthand just what the money is used for: “It’s important to us to do good, especially in our local area, and to be sure that our donations are really going to those who need them. With this donation, we wish to make a contribution on behalf of our customers and employees too and to give help where it’s really needed.”

Last Christmas and the Christmas before, Buschjost made a donation to the integrative “Plumpaquatsch” nursery school, thereby enabling it to create a new willow garden on its grounds and buy new play equipment and chairs. This also received a positive response from customers and business partners: “We told our customers and business partners about our donation in our Christmas card and had such positive feedback that we wanted to do it again,” says Torsten Bredthauer.
