)-- 100% of Emsisoft’s Christmas Proceeds to Benefit Fundraiser
Emsisoft decided to do something different for Christmas this year, and become part of a local charity project that has a direct impact on the surrounding community: the Motueka Rudolf Steiner school in New Zealand which is in urgent need of a new school building. Emsisoft will donate every penny made from online sales on December 25th, 2014 to the school’s fundraising efforts.
“Emsisoft's headquarters recently moved from Austria to New Zealand when this project caught our eye. It was an easy decision to make the new school building for the Motueka Rudolf Steiner school the focus of our Christmas donations. Donations - no matter how small - can make a big impact on a project like this," says Christian Mairoll, founder and CEO of Emsisoft.
A new building is needed urgently. Your help can make it happen.
Located in the rural service town of Motueka, at the top of the South Island of New Zealand, the small elementary school has an urgent problem: they need a new home. Like all Steiner/Waldorf schools they are independent from central control, and rely on school run fairs and the selling of handmade crafts to raise money. However, at the moment the stakes are high for this community and they could end up homeless. To build an inspiring and unique new campus almost seems like an impossible project, therefore the school and it's kids are seeking support beyond its own community. Mairoll: "It’s a personal concern for me to help this school to survive and thrive, because it focuses on community, arts, nature, ecology and children’s diversity.” Learn more about the cause in this short video.
About the Motueka Rudolf Steiner School
The Motueka Rudolf Steiner school is co-educational and non-denominational, welcoming all families who are willing to engage with their curriculum and methods. Their curriculum is similar to that used in Steiner (Waldorf) schools throughout the world. Schools aim to prepare kids with "21st century skills" and focus on social and environmental skills in addition to educational goals. A feature of all Steiner schools is their independence from central control, and their freedom to develop a curriculum that reflects the local community and culture. The first Waldorf School was founded in Germany in 1919 and there are now more than 1000 Rudolf Steiner schools worldwide.
