The time has come: our association is now called "Together Human".
We try to change our name quickly and as simultaneously as possible everywhere. We ask for your understanding, however, if there are occasional discrepancies - on some channels (e.g. our PostFinance account) there are externally caused waiting periods until the new name is also implemented there.
The association "StrickWärme - helps people on the run" is now called "Together Human". This means that the website, the Facebook pageetc., should be renamed too. There will also be new flyers.
But the name "KnitWarmth" does not disappear completely. We continue to use it for our knitting programme, which includes those projects for which knitwear is collected. Our Instagram page will in future be used specifically for the knitting theme and for networking with the handmade community. In addition, our Facebook group, which also focuses on the topic of knitting, will be continued in the same way. On both channels it will of course be clear that "Together Human" is the operator.
What does the new logo represent?
The logo shows a "high five" between an adult and a child. It refers to the central moment of success that actually exists in many of our projects. For months we organize and prepare, collect knitwear, write mails and keep in touch with partner organizations. Then finally the project trip takes place. Our team goes to countries like Jordan, Kenya or Greece and meets children there who have had to endure much suffering in their young lives. We help in the best possible way, financially, but also with knitted hats or dolls, which carry a lot of solidarity. When distributing such lovingly made handmade products, there is always a "high five" between our members and some of the kids. This is the moment that enchants our commitment. This positive moment will be represented in our logo in the future.
Why the new name?
As we have been carrying out projects for some time now where knitting is not an issue, and we are in the process of professionalising the search for means, the old name has increasingly become a challenge. Therefore we have decided to give ourselves a new coat of paint. The new name should radiate professionalism and work well for all our activities.
In a several month long process, all persons within and around the association were involved and a new name. The election was finally made at the Annual General Meeting on November 9, 2019.
We are convinced that the name "Together Human" will enable us to open up new circles for members, donors and interested people. Our tireless commitment to the weakest continues unchanged under the new name.
To a successful start with our new brand! We are very confident that it will bring the club further forward. Together we will make the world a more human place. Together Human!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their interest and assistance. Without you all this would not be possible. On behalf of the association we wish you happy holidays and a happy new year 2020!
