Today ambassador for Lindt, Roger Federer, signed five bears to help out the 75 years old Swiss organization, Winterhilfe. A Maitre Chocolatier showed me one of the bears and tilted it so that I could see Roger Federer’s signature. The new bear made of porcelain weighs 5.3oz (150 g), he said.
The auction is now online on ricardo.ch. Lindt and Sprüngli have been helping Winterhilfe for years but this year is different. Lindt and Federer are joining forces and will both each year for the next five years send CHF 40,000 to the organization.
Online bidding can be done until Saturday November 19th, 4:00 p.m.
Visit www. ricardo.ch.
The money will help Swiss people in this difficult cold time of the year and many poor children.
CEO, Ernst Tanner, said while putting the red heart on one of the bears, “Christmas will never be the same”.
