Hospital stays are probably not pleasant for anyone, but when a small 4-year-old boy has already undergone four hour-long operations with hospital stays, everyone would agree that a childhood should turn out differently. Born in Sulzbach-Rosenberg, the hometown of elasto – the specialist for promotional products made of plastic – Bastian has been suffering from a serious heart defect since birth and had to undergo an 8-hour operation for the first time on his ninth day of life. Over the next few months and years, three more major operations followed, but ultimately failed to deliver the desired outcome – a reasonably normal life for Basti.

The last resort for the little boy is an operation carried out by a specialist in the USA. But the cost of travel, treatment, hospitalisation, as well as the loss of salary of the parents far exceed their budget. Which costs the health insurance company will cover remain uncertain and so a large donation campaign was launched by Bastian's godfather. elasto would like to contribute as well and is appealing to its customers for help.

From now until 14 June 2018, all elasto customers have the opportunity to donate 5 euros in the company’s online shop with their purchase. Each donation will automatically land in the shopping cart but can be deselected/deleted if the customer does not wish to make a donation. At the end of the campaign, elasto will double the amount of the donations collected and hopefully enable Bastian to undergo the operation soon. Reed Exhibitions, the parent company of PSI, has already made a donation. 

The entire story of Bastian can be read at www.spenden-für-basti.de. "We very much hope that lots of donations are made – not only through our shop – and that Bastian can be operated on soon. We sincerely wish him and his family all the best," says elasto Managing Director Marcus Sperber. www.elasto.de
