YOGI TEA® supports people worldwide, and particularly in areas where our produce is farmed, helping to improve their lives on a long-term basis. But we also want to help those closer to home. Here is a short overview of our local commitments.
The Hamburg-based charity run entirely by volunteers, Glücksstern e. V. (‘Lucky Star’), aims to bring a little happiness to children from socially deprived families and those in need. Thanks to donations from various campaigns, the children are provided with support in different areas. At YOGI TEA®, we provide annual support for the association’s back-to-school and Christmas campaigns with gifts for the children.
We have been supporting Stiftung Mittagskinder (‘Lunch Kids Foundation’) in Hamburg for several years now. At the foundation’s two children’s clubs, more than 200 socially deprived children are given free meals, help with homework and social support, as well as a variety of opportunities to enjoy games and sports with their friends!
Also in Hamburg, YOGI TEA® is a partner of the Bio-Brotbox (‘organic sandwich box’) project, a campaign drawing attention to the importance of providing schoolchildren with a good breakfast. The campaign involves giving first-year pupils a reusable breakfast box filled with delicious organic food.
Inclusion is very important to us in Germany. YOGI TEA® is delighted to support projects that encourage the integration of people with learning and physical disabilities and find jobs for them. These include companies like alsterarbeit and Nordeifelwerkstätten, our partners in the fields of storage and logistics.
