Fanatec donates half a million face masks
Fellow Sim Racers,
In these crazy COVID-19 times where it feels like the world is turned upside-down, we wanted to do our part to help. We decided to buy and distribute 500,000 CE-certified mouth and nose masks to the city of Landshut, where Fanatec HQ is located. Together with the city, we formed a plan to source half a million masks. With the help of our employees located in China, we worked hard to make it happen. With the massive demand it took us two months but we’re pleased that the citizens of Landshut have finally received their masks. The full consignment of masks arrived three weeks ago and 80,000 units shipped directly to households last week. The rest of this delivery, valued at 500,000€, will be donated to retirement homes and other medical institutions, distributed directly by the city of Landshut.
But that’s not all. Until further notice we will make donations of one nose and mouth mask with every purchase on the Fanatec website. The masks will be donated to hospitals, nursing homes, and other locales that are of utmost importance for society and its functions - decided by the city. You’ll see the counter which shows the amount of masks donated on our front page.
We believe that if people work together to protect each other and the ones that need it the most and with a united effort, we will come out of this pandemic stronger than before.
