First of all, we would like to thank our team and all our customers and partners who made 2022 an enjoyable, exciting and successful year for our company. Thanks to you, we were able to achieve wonderful things again this year, digitise many fleets and get companies, organisations and neighbourhoods started with carsharing. So thank you!
Around this time, we usually show our network our gratitude and appreciation by sending gifts. With so much going on in the world right now, we wanted to use this moment to make a more social contribution. We felt that we could spend the money in a better way. Therefore, we decided to forgo the usual Christmas gifting and do something meaningful instead.
We kept our tradition of sending a holiday cards. But instead of accompanying the card with a present, this holiday season we donate an amount of money per card to the Princess Máxima Center for pediatric oncology in Utrecht.
The Princess Máxima Centre is a research hospital in the field of children’s cancer and also the largest children’s cancer centre in Europe. All children with cancer in the Netherlands are treated here. Over 450 researchers and 900 healthcare professionals work closely together with Dutch and international hospitals on better treatments and new perspectives on cures.
In this way, the Princes Máxima Center give the child of today the very best care and take important steps to improve the chances of survival for the children who are not yet cured. As children are very close to our hearts, their mission to cure every child with cancer, with optimal quality of life, is one we at WeGo warmly supports.
We are pleased that we can make a positive contribution with our donation and maybe we can inspire others to join us. With every donation, more money is available for important research. So every contribution, big or small, helps! For more information about the hospital and how to donate, check out their website.
We have also come up with something special for our Christmas cards this year. We used special, very sustainable paper for our holiday cards: “growing paper”! This is made from 100% recycled paper, processed by hand into pulp, and then mixed with flower seeds. It is meant to be planted, so if you’ve received our card, be sure to do that! It is very easy and also a fun activity for children.
Watch the video below for instructions. If you plant the card and manage to grow flowers from it, send us a photo! We love to see how our cards got a second life
