Charity OrganiZations supported by Tillotts
Christmas Donation to Nepal
As in recent years, Tillotts donated money which was saved by switching to electronic Christmas greetings as opposed to sending Christmas cards by post. Due to the impressive travel report from our CEO, Thomas A. Tóth, following his visit to the children with disability in Nepal, Tillotts decided to donate 10’000 CHF to CBM Switzerland (Christoffel Blinden-mission, www.cbmswiss.ch), which supports the non-profit organization in Nepal called FOD (Friends of Disabled- click here to read more).
It is our hope that our contribution will bring some joy, happiness and courage to these children.

Sorgentelefon - There is always someone listening to our children
Since 34 years, the private institution Sorgentelefon (a children’s helpline), offers children a open ear to their worries and needs. What started with a simple phone helpline and letter answering service, is today a professional multimedia service via phone, email and SMS provide children with life- and crisis coaching as well as other helpful advice.
In memory of the founder Heinz Peyer, who died of cancer in 2005, his family offers this special service to all children in Switzerland free of charge.
Tillotts would like to support such helpful organizations with their important work and in doing so, donated 300 CHF at Christmas.
