"There are no easy answers but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right."
- Ronald Reagan
"The purpose of an economic system is to help organize human activities in ways that create healthy and resilient human communities and ecosystems for both present and future generations. Even the father of modern economics, Adam Smith, nearly two decades before his seminal 1776 Wealth of Nations, recognized in Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759) the role of sympathy, passion, propriety and virtue in creating humane societies."
- Dr. Allen L. White, Vice President and Senior Fellow, Tellus Institute, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A Makro Cash & Carry Christmas visit to the PromiseLand has become a tradition. This Christmas was no exception, and we thank you Makro Cash & Carry Koszalin for making the holiday season so very special for our PromiseKids at the Rzecino School. The delightful visit by Santa (Piotr Geppert – Supply Department Director) will long be remembered by our kids.
A special thank you to Koszalin Managing Director Mikolaj Przybek, and Katarzyna Deckert, Director of the Customer Service Department.
I can’t remember a time when the good folks at Foundation Member Makro Cash & Carry didn’t say yes to our Foundation and our PromiseKids. This holiday season is no exception.
Makro General Manager for Poland,Sylweriusz Faruga,said: “We are committed to the Foundation’s Hot-Meal Program, and it is our pleasure to support you with this Christmas Campaign for the 5th year in a row.”

InterContinental Hotel General Manager Christian Henkemeier must spend a good part of his day thinking about ways to help our PromiseKids. This holiday season, Christian and Sales & Marketing Manager Alexander Suski, decided to give our Foundation 5% of the revenues raised from our Foundation members at the InterContinental Hotel’s New Year Eve celebration.
It works like this… Make your reservations as shown below, and 5% of your reservation will be contributed to our Foundation’s Hot-Meal Program. We do encourage you to enjoy New Years Eve to the fullest knowing that you are helping some very special kids.
