Our heart also beats for others
The success of any organisation largely depends on the efficiency and commitment of the management board. In addition to the founder and name giver Regine Sixt, who acts as Chief Executive, this also includes her sons Alexander and Konstantin Sixt.
With their many years of expertise, they give the Children's Aid Foundation additional drive. Dr. Julian Freiherr zu Putlitz guarantees the foundation’s perfect financial management. The management board guarantees that the funds raised will arrive safely on site and will be used exclusively for specific purposes, and that 100% of every donation will arrive at the projects and without any deductions.
Together, this committee ensures that the ambitious goals are consistently achieved.
Founder and Chief Executive
Our motto is our mission: To dry little tears with drive and transparency. We have already achieved a lot, with committed project partners, courageous supporters and many volunteers, especially from the globally operating SIXT family. So far, we have successfully completed over 210 projects in more than 55 countries. So it is only right that our initiative has also been the SIXT Group’s official CSR programme since 2011. Wherever we can do good, whether in orphanages, children's hospices, kindergartens, schools and children's hospitals: We know that we can make a difference there with your help. And the great thing about it: We find that when we take care of others our own lives gain a deeper meaning.
At the SIXT's Corporate Social Responsibility program, we demonstrate a sense of responsibility beyond company boundaries. On one hand, we want the Executive Board to promote the performance of our employees and give them the freedom to develop personally. On the other hand, we as a company - like our employees - want to show public responsibility for social issues. In addition to their daily work, SIXT also deliberately offers its employees space for commitment. If an employee has a vision that fits our mission statement and values, then we give them the freedom to make this vision a reality. This way we create a situation that offers advantages for everyone: The employees help shape SIXT and feel confirmed. At the same time, it strengthens the bond with the company - and helps children around the world who urgently need our help.
As the Sixt Managing Board and also as board members of the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation, our aim is to do all we can to help as many children as possible around the world.
With the “Drying Little Tears” programme and with the voluntary help of our employees - which includes the “Drying Little Tears Day” activities initiated and managed by employees themselves - we have succeeded, over the years, in successfully implementing the first 210 projects and initiatives of the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation. As managing board members we seek to contribute with our energy and knowledge so that children can be helped successfully in the next 210 projects. The aim is for there soon to be an aid project in every SIXT country around the world.
Dr. Julian Freiherr zu Putlitz
As board members of the Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation, we seek to play an active role in contributing to ensuring success over the long-term. It is important not to focus solely on large scale initiatives, but also on a small scale to respond rapidly and help disadvantaged and severely sick children. We ensure that all aid arrives directly with the project managers and is there to help those they are protecting. Our experience helps us in this, as does our network around the globe, which has developed over the decades.
