The HERO-campaigns first started in 2014. We wanted to award and support people who stood up for the needy and against abuse on a daily basis. We collected 12,200 Euros for our HERO 2014 Pater Antonios. He invested 100% into his project “ARK of the World”.

We asked all ROTHENBERGER employees to look in their private and professional surroundings to find our HERO 2015. Every submission was published on the TOOLS FOR LIFE-website. In the end the Rothenberger family as the foundation board, selected the “HERO 2015” from all the submissions and made his/her project the theme of this years ROTHENBERGER Christmas donation campaign “Spenden statt Schenken”. 100% of the raised funds will go to the project.
