Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2015


We wish you, your colleagues and your family a happy holiday season
and a healthy and successful New Year 2015.

Instead of sending out Christmas gifts we have decided to continue our tradition of donating
to charitable foundations in the amount of 1,000 Euros each to:

Förderverein für krebskranke Kinder Tübingen e.V.
Care-for-Rare Foundation in Munich
STIFTUNG MICHAEL - a foundation for epilepsy in Bonn
