As in previous years, the steep GmbH refrains from sending Christmas cards to customers, partners and suppliers, in order to support two non-profit institutions with a donation, instead.
One part of the donation goes to the Soldier’s Relief association (Soldatenhilfswerk der Bundeswehr e.V.) in Bonn. Founded in 1957, the organization is the oldest social institution of the German Army. The Soldier’s Relief Association supports soldiers and their families that are in need.
The other part of the donation goes to the NCL-Foundation in Hamburg. NCL (neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis) is a metabolic disease that leads to the dying of nerve cells and is thus the most common form of childhood dementia. The NCL-Foundation supports national and international research projects, in order to improve the prospects for the still lacking healing- and therapeutic approaches.
