Good News trotz Krise

A full restaurant in your own living room

If we can't go to the restaurant, the full restaurant comes to our home. The Basel restaurant "Bodega zum Strauss" can be audibly ordered home at the touch of a button. Sound designer Peter Philippe Weiss has made the restaurant's acoustic portrait available for free streaming to Corona-at-home-goers. At the soundcloud link can be clicked - and already you feel like in the middle of the bodega.

Mazda supports aid projects

As part of the "Mazda Help" solidarity campaign, the automaker provides vehicles to specific aid projects. The campaign is based on three interlinked elements: a call for projects, the involvement of the Mazda dealer network and the participation of Mazda drivers. Currently, 20 vehicles have already been mobilized - with the involvement of the dealer network and customers, the number is expected to increase further. Interested parties can respond to the call from Mazda.

For a first pilot project before the launch, several vehicles were given to the Farmy company to distribute locally produced food to medical personnel in the cantons of Vaud and Zurich, which are among the cantons most affected by the pandemic.
