HIGH FIVE! Falling down, getting up, overcoming limits
Exciting projects, successful launches, engaged cooperation of customers, suppliers and employees – we look back contentedly on the year 2016 and start highly motivated into the year 2017.
However, nearly each project brings challenges as well, which have to be mastered personally and in the team. Self-consciousness, flexibility, the abilities to accept criticism and to learn are only a few skills that are often demanded in working life.
Those who develop these skills already as child or youngster will not only benefit from it in the future job, but also in many other areas of life.
Therefore, we support HIGH FIVE with this year’s Christmas donation.
The charitable organization provides free skateboard, BMX and snowboard workshops to children and youths in need, mainly refugees and orphans. These activities bring together children and youths from various backgrounds and offer them a positive balance to their often difficult everyday life.
In the workshops, they get to know new types of sports and develop coordinative skills, dexterity and a good sense of their body. Besides, important emotional, social and integrative abilities are enhanced and values such as tolerance, respect, patience and responsibility are promoted.
HIGH FIVE was founded in 2010 by sports-enthusiastic employees of Millhaus GmbH. Since then, more than 1000 children and youths between 8 and 16 years from socially deprived milieus have taken part in more than 100 workshops. In future, street art and diverse creative and dancing projects are to be offered in addition to action sports.
