betterplace junior’s christmas stall

betterplacejunior-stand07-039.jpgYesterday betterplace junior organised their christmas stall on Kollwitzplatz in Berlin, Prenzlauer Berg. It was a huge success.

Not only did the juniors – Anton, Jakob and Philipp, Lotta, Albert, Lilian and Vico, Juli, Daniela and Rebecca and Julius – catch the attention of the visitors (amongst others by walking around and distributing free clementines with the betterplace logo and singing “better place” songs), they also competently answered questions about betterplace and the projects the proceeds will be donated to. They sold so many betterplace t-shirts, scarves, gloves, cards, chocolates, usb-sticks and vouchers that by the end of a long and cold but cheerful day they had earned over 1400 Euros for the 5 chosen projects. Our stall was by far one of the liveliest (even discounting the many friends that came by and did their christmas shopping) and the spirit was so good that not only did the market organisers invite us to their next market, but the children themselves were eager to organize another one. 

 Another great development was the spontaneous foundation of  betterplace bambini by Tibi and Lucca, 2 younger friends who sold their crafts next to ours and donated all of their earnings to 2 betterplace projects! 69,70 Euro will go to South Coast Hospice, 51,30 to Akinda in Berlin.

 Thanks to all of you – its a great pleasure to know you all!  And its also wonderful to have friends and supporters such as Sibylle and Renée without whose ideas and skills the wonderful first set of betterplace merchandize wouldn’t exist.

    We loved to be at the x-mas stall.
    All in all, we collected 69,70 Euro for
    our chosen project in Uganda and 51.30 Euro
    for tthe project in Berlin.

    It is great fun to work together with the other children
    for betterplace and we are looking forward to the next projects.

    I just hoped to take a few moments and let you know that I
    enjoyed reading the article. I frankly don’t believe that generally people know simply how much labor that goes into putting together a webpage. I’m sure this will be sort
    of random nevertheless it bugs me occasionally. At any rate very
    good post.

    Paragraph writing is also a fun, if you know after that you can write or
    else it is difficult to write.
