We wanted to know...
"What motivated you to accept this honorary position?"
"It is a great and personal concern of mine to give something back. For children and young people who, for a variety of reasons, cannot live a carefree life. If you have the opportunity to help, you should do so. I am proud to have been a member of the advisory board of the Rainer Winter Foundation, which was set up by my grandfather, for many years."
"I have been associated with the founder of the foundation, Rainer Winter, for more than forty years and have come to know and appreciate him as a far-sighted, responsible person. It was and is therefore a matter of course for me to be involved in the Rainer Winter Foundation. There I can contribute my part to supporting disadvantaged children and young people and be sure that 100% of the help reaches those in need."
"Helping children and young people in need to improve their lives and perspectives is a fulfilling task that I am happy to be involved in.
I have been following and supporting the Rainer Winter Foundation for over three decades and have seen first-hand how countless children and young people near and far receive unbureaucratic support.
There is nothing better than looking into the smiling faces of children."
Dr. h. c. Walter Stepan
"When Rainer Winter and Gabriele Grau asked me in 2016 whether I would like to join the advisory board of the Rainer Winter Foundation, it was a pleasure and an honor for me to accept. For me, it also means returning, 50 years after I started working with Rainer Winter at uvex, to participate in the foundation's advisory board as a retiree and to be involved in charitable work in Germany."
Dr. Martin Ziener
"Children are our future. It is therefore my particular concern to alleviate emergencies quickly, directly and unbureaucratically and to ensure education. The Rainer Winter Foundation, which donates every euro to where it is needed, is therefore a great organization for putting this cause into practice. It is a particular pleasure for me to make a contribution to this."
