Einhell and Zgonc for "Licht ins Dunkel"
Austria's biggest humanitarian aid campaign
Especially in times of crisis, the inclusion of people with disabilities can become an even greater challenge. Helping these people and their families is a wonderful goal. Together with our long-standing partner Zgonc, Einhell is therefore committed to the "Licht ins Dunkel" (German for 'Light into the dark') association of the ORF (Austrian Broadcasting Corporation). Together we will support the social projects of Austria's largest charitable initiative to show solidarity with those who are not doing so well.
Licht ins DunkelHumanitarian aid for 50 years
"Licht ins Dunkel" (Light into Darkness) is a unique aid campaign in Europe that has stood for social cohesion for 50 years. The focus of the non-profit association is on supporting physically and intellectually impaired people as well as psychosocially disadvantaged families with children. The association's activities cover the whole of Austria and are not aimed at making a profit.
Every year, the "Licht ins Dunkel" project aid supports around 400 inclusion and social projects throughout Austria that aim at social participation. More information about the association and how you can donate can be found here:

150,000 euros for people with disabilities and families in need
ORF quizmaster Armin Assinger, former ski racer Hans Knauß, cabaret artist Gery Seidl and professional cyclist Yvonne Marzinke competed together in the ORF 24-hour cycling challenge, covering incredible 750 kilometres. The cycled kilometres not only recharged an oversized Einhell battery - every kilometre cycled helps disabled people and families in need. Zgonc and Einhell sponsored 100 euros for each kilometre for the ORF campaign. In the kick-off programme "Licht ins Dunkel - der Gala-Abend", Zgonc CEO Michael Dockal and Einhell CEO Andreas Kroiss surprisingly doubled the amount and thus donated a sum of 150,000 euros to the Austrian aid campaign.
