For some time, we have been aware of the precarious situation of people in the Developing World who struggle to feed themselves. But we often forget that this also concerns people in industrialized countries, including in Switzerland.
When we heard about the association “Les Cartons du Coeur” (“the boxes of the heart”), which helps families with financial difficulties in the Swiss Riviera, we decided to organize a charity event to support the cause.
Two weeks before Christmas, we placed two boxes in our offices and encouraged our staff to fill them with food.
Despite the holiday season, we could count on the generosity of our employees: the boxes were full of food ready to be redistributed to the families supported by “Les Cartons du Coeur”.
