Winter Aid Switzerland

16.10.2013 | Foundation, Starseite 3

Roger visited the LINDT Chocolateria in Kilchberg close to Zurich yesterday. He enjoyed the opportunity to make a chocolate creation together with a group of children supported through the Roger Federer Foundation via Winter Aid Switzerland.

In 2011, the Roger Federer Foundation and Lindt & Sprüngli committed to supporting a special programme of Winter Aid Switzerland with a total of 400’000 Swiss francs in equal parts over a period of five years. The programme helps underprivileged children in Switzerland.

"As a father of two little children, I experience on a day-to-day basis how important it is to support them in all possible ways. That is why I take particular personal interest in getting involved with underprivileged children here in Switzerland, too. It was great fun spending an exciting day at the LINDT Chocolateria together with the kids we support through the programme of Winter Aid," Roger said during his visit.

Of course the little ones discovered RogeRFun , did we get that one in the word game?
I am pleased Roger gets so much enjoyment out of life even when the tennis is not going well. He does so much good wherever he goes.

Following on my previous comment. Just one ATP tournament is played in Africa, The casablanca open, which is an underpriviliged 250 open. Maybe you bringing Tennis to South Africa for an exhibition can spark the flame. However, is just a wish. i dont want you to play many exhibitions or cut your pre-season but mid-november, new racquet, prior to a make or break year and a pile of money for the foundation seem to me more than enough good reasons to make Tony godsick arrange it.

Great! It was fun. I love LINDT Chocolate.

Roger: just a thought, how wonderful would it be for you to convince Jo-Willy to play two exhibition games in South-Africa by mid november. you can try the new racquet, stop calling it a prototype, see how much damage you can do with it against a hard hitter and make a great amount of money for the foundation. I know the foundation supports more children in Zimbawe but I beleive southafrica has more developed facilities. Just a though and a wish.

☆Darling Roger, you are a great champion and the greatest athlete of all time, but above all is an amazing person who has a great mission on earth as all great men of humanity. I believe that people like you are very special and rare in a world that increasingly needs education and good examples, the key to living in a peaceful society is education and you are a great example of this naturally!!! ☆
