Our Kids.ONE fundraising campaign puts children first. We have been fundraising for the German Child Protection Association (Kinderschutzbund: KSB) at our German locations in Heidelberg, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Dortmund, Munich, Freiburg, and Bautzen since 2017. Kids.ONE complements our commitment to nurturing young talent and ensures that we live up to our social responsibility.
Corporate Social Responsibility
What type of projects do we support?
Firstly, we are helping to fund a significant expansion of the Heidelberg KSB premises. Secondly, we are supporting the association’s ‘Kinderzeit’ initiative, giving children whose parents are no longer able to communicate with one another in the usual way an opportunity for supervised visitation with the parent they no longer live with. To facilitate this, rooms at almost all of the association’s locations are equipped with additional furniture and a paid professional is brought in to supervise the parental meetings as well as external specialists for handover situations. Thirdly, all counseling for young people, parents and families at the KSB is entirely funded by donations. Funding is therefore required for the trained professionals who provide the counseling. Our Kids.ONE campaign also supports this

German Child Protection Association
The KSB is a not-for-profit organization and advocacy group for children. It was founded in 1953 and is an umbrella association of regional associations, which currently represent about 430 local associations.
cbs is represented at a total of five locations in Germany. Kids.ONE is therefore also involved at all these locations of the KSB, namely the local associations in Heidelberg, Dortmund, Hamburg, Munich, and Stuttgart.
