Peter Maffay: Rounding up for his foundation
The rocker will "volunteer at the cash register" at Heßler Straße 18 in Essen from 9 p.m., as announced on his social media accounts. He is happy "about every rounding up for his foundation". The background to the campaign: From May 29 to September 3, all donations at Netto will go to the singer's foundation. The charity, which also bears the name of Peter Maffay, is committed to helping children who are in need.
According to a press release, the food retailer supports the Peter Maffay Foundation and its Tabaluga houses "together with the deposit and cash donations of its customers". "The houses offer socially disadvantaged and traumatized children and young people a break from everyday life in a natural environment."

On June 1, Children's Day, "every daily cash and deposit donation will be doubled by a corporate donation from the grocer," it continues. The campaign is simply explained: Say "Simply round up" at the checkout and thus support the donation partners with 1 to 10 cents for every purchase. In addition, the value of the deposit voucher can be donated.
