One aspect of life is universal: time. How long we live, love, laugh, sit, drive, fly, vacation, and work is measured in time. We have good times and bad times, hard times and prosperous times. As a company whose business is all about time, we know the importance of one's time with their family and loved ones.
Steinhausen knows how precious time is. Through our products, we help to ensure that people have precise time measurements with class and style. Through the Make Time Project, we help to ensure that those less fortunate have more time and better times with the ones they love the most.
The Make Time Project
Steinhausen's Make Time Project is about giving time to others by way of charitable donation of funds raised through our quarterly Steinhausen Sweepstakes. Each quarter, Steinhausen selects charities that will receive portions of the proceeds raised through our International fund-raising efforts.
Steinhausen donates packages of our products (equaling up to $500) to the sweepstakes. Here is a list of the most current sweepstakes package.
The Sweepstakes and How You Help
Every $10 sweepstakes donation you make enters you for a chance to win one of the Steinhausen packages. This donation is separate from a purchase of a Steinhausen product. In fact, no purchase of a Steinhausen product is necessary to purchase a sweepstakes entry.
Within fifteen days after the end of the quarter (Jan 15, April 15, July 15, and Oct 15), Steinhausen will announce and contact the winner of the sweepstakes to verify the delivery address of the Steinhausen package s/he just won. We will also announce the total amount of funds that will be donated to the beneficiary non-profit organizations.
Frequently Asked Questions

How will I be notified if I win?
When you purchase your sweepstakes tickets, you will be required to provide your address and your phone number. We will contact you via the telephone and send you a letter in the mail notifying you of your win. Once we speak with you in person, we will ship you the Steinhausen product you have won. We do this extra checking to make sure you have not moved or will be unable to receive the products at the address your originally provided when you entered the sweepstakes.
If I win a package, will I need to pay taxes?
Everyone's tax situation is different. You should contact a tax professional.
