Social Engagement at F&P Stock Solution!
F&P Stock Solution was founded in 2013 by two young, dedicated founders who wanted to do more than just “sell goods”. Julius Göllner and Ole Schneikart wanted to find a solution for the question, “What happens to all the shoes and textiles that are not sold?” The idea: to give overstocks of shoes and textiles a second life cycle. By implementing this business policy, Julius and Ole have meanwhile not only created around 50 new jobs, but also found a way to not throw away what our affluent society no longer wants. In the five years since the foundation, F&P Stock Solution has become one of the world’s leading wholesalers of overstock, costumer returns and liquidation goods. F&P sells high quality branded goods worldwide to its international customers. The highly motivated and young team around the founders of F&P is working with passion and dedication to further growth.
But Julius and Ole aren’t only ambitious and passionate about their own business. They always saw the opportunities to make a difference through their “hands-on mentality”. They want to change something with and through F&P! Environmental and social topics are thought through and practical solutions sought. Since the end of October 2018, F&P Stock Solution is proud to publish a so-called successfully audited GWÖ balance sheet. It’s not a balance sheet according to financial standards, it’s a balance for the increase of the common good. In addition to human dignity, transparency and ethical attitude, it is also about sustainability and ecology. In addition to the GWÖ balance sheet, F&P also supports social institutions and projects with donations. For example, the children’s shelter of the ASB in Falkensee with the Charity Fashion Flash in April 2018 (link to the article) or the breast cancer organization “Pink Ribbon”. The latest project is the support of Jangu e.V. by purchasing materials via smile.amazon.de
What is Jangu e.V. and how does F&P support the association by shopping at Amazon?
AmazonSmile is a project of the shopping giant Amazon. For every order the customer makes through the smile.amazon.de website, 0.5% of the shopping sum will be donated to a social organization. The social organization can be selected in advance by the costumer from thousands of organizations.
F&P Stock Solution buys most of its materials for the office or warehouse via Amazon. The idea of supporting social projects by shopping was a perfect one and comes at the right time.
Julius and Ole, the founders and managing directors of F&P have decided to support Jangu e.V. via AmazonSmile.
Jangu e.V. (link to page) is a non-profit association founded in 2009 which supports disadvantaged children and young people in Uganda and prospects for their future through education.
„Our educational sponsorships lay the foundation while our Social Innovation Academy (SINA) unleashes the youth’ potential to start their own social enterprises and solve social challenges in Uganda. Our NGO was founded in 2009 by a young and motivated team. Educational sponsorships have been established since 2007 and the first generation of our sponsored children have passed their A-Levels in November 2013.
We are successfully working in close cooperation with our Ugandan partners and our network of sponsored and formerly sponsored youth. Nelson Mandela once said that “Education is the most powerful weapon which we can use to change our world”. Therefore, education is indispensable in development cooperation and can sustainably empower the generations of the future to live in a dignified and content way. We want to make our contribution to this and invite you to support Jangu e.V.!”(Source: Homepage Jangu e.V.)
