„As a responsible internationally active business, we take our commitment to society seriously and sponsor several social projects.“ – Ulli Ehrlich
The Tyrol based charity “Kindern eine Chance” (A Chance for Children) sponsors orphan children in Uganda. The children, predominantly orphaned through AIDS are helped along life’s journey through the sustainable funding of their education. The project is active in four locations in Uganda, currently providing 420 children with education, food, clean drinking water, medication and shelter.
Sportalm also supported the initiative in the construction of two schools, dedicated to the late husband of Ulli Ehrlich.
“Women lie close to our hearts. Women are our customers and women are also our employees. It's also women that have made us a successful business. Therefore we support this campaign and are happy to carry our little load so that those affected can get immediate help without red tape and naturally also to raise public awareness for this issue” – Ulli Ehrlich
In 1992 Evelyn Lauder brought “Pink Ribbon” to life in order to sponsor international breast cancert support. The pink ribbon is a strong symbol for the hope of treatment and recovery. Since the development of the initiative, every October is officially declared breast cancer month and through various activities, awareness of breast cancer support is raised with great success. We have taken part since 2009 and so far have dedicated a Dirndl and a T Shirt to the “pink ribbon” cause.
Since 1992, the Life Ball in Vienna is the largest charity event in support of HIV positive people and AIDS sufferers in Europe. The defined goal of the event is to make the general public mindful of the dangers of HIV/AIDS. The proceeds from the event go to various non profit organisations who are committed to the fight against HIV. Since 2010, we have the honour of outfitting the debutantes in Sportalm clothing.
