Affair of the heart: Lufthansa Consulting employees bake Christmas cookies

One evening in December the Lufthansa Consulting team met after work to fulfill a special Christmas mission – to support the help alliance and enable the aid organization to realize further projects and give happiness to people in need in developing countries.

The employees wanted to make a significant contribution to help alliance’s work by baking Christmas biscuits together and organizing donation stands where they offered the fruits of their labor. The baking event turned out to be great fun for everybody. Guidance, advice and assistance were provided by professional bakers in order to ensure the good quality and excellent taste of the cookies. The output after several hours of baking, eating, chatting and laughing together was a huge quantity of seven different sorts of delicious traditional German cookies which were offered in return for a donation at the stands in the Lufthansa canteens in Frankfurt during the lunch hour on two days in December.

The response was very good and Lufthansa Consulting’s staff received a highly welcome amount of donations. The company would like to thank all the Lufthansa Group colleagues who took part for their help in completing the mission and hopes that everyone who made donations enjoyed the hand-made biscuits, which were prepared with love.

help alliance was founded in 1999 by Lufthansa employees and is a registered charity under German law. Today, the organization supports about 40 aid initiatives per year around the world, helping mainly children, youths and women to create a better and independent life. Every project is monitored and looked after by a responsible member of the Lufthansa Group, Condor or other cooperating companies. The project managers always work in close cooperation with local partners who have longstanding experience in development aid work.
