The Kinderhospiz Sterntaler e. V. in Mannheim is pleased about a donation of 8,700.00 Euro, which the women’s network Desperate Workwives has procured by creating a unique Advent calendar.
Under the title “24 multicolored moments to Christmas,” one finds in the calendar a colorful mix from contemplation, tips, prescriptions, stories, mysteries, handicraft guidance, and much more besides. From the content concept to the design to the complete organization of the project, the Advent calendar was created voluntarily by the women of the network on their own. Thus, every cent of the proceeds could be earmarked for the children’s hospice.
The project was financed via the crowdfunding platform Startnext and with the help of BKB Charity.
The dance school M.A.K. Studios is now a new cooperation partner of BKB Charity. Joint activities and events are planned as well as the sale of charity products to support the humanitarian and social aid projects of the BKB Charity Initiative. Dancing for a good cause – M.A.K. Managing Director Maryam Anita Khosravi-Piazolo and BKB Charity are already looking forward to exciting “Charity Dance Challenges”.
In the heart of Freiburg, in the beautiful Friedrichsbau, the dance school M.A.K. Studios offers diverse and highly professional courses and workshops – from ballet and jazz to modern urban dance styles such as hip hop, breakdance, locking, popping or dancehall.

Nuremberg-based Nut wedges Manufacturer Kai Küfner and BKB Charity launch mutual aid projects for humanitarian institutions in Nepal and Tanzania. Meister Küfner bakes BKB-Charity-Nut wedges for one season, of which a part of the proceeds from direct sales goes to charitable hospitals in both countries.
The Sushma Koirala Memorial Hospital in Nepal will be supported and will treat the poorest of the poor, especially children, free of charge. The aid in Tanzania is intended for the Nkoaranga Hospital (project “Feuerkinder”), where children suffering from burns or severe bone deformities are also operated on free of charge.
The Nut wedges by Meister Küfner are known in Nuremberg – and far beyond – for their high quality and unique taste. We hope for a successful campaign for the two aid projects.

A magnificent announcement! Our long-time partners and supporters of the Junge Kammerphilharmonie Berlin (JKPB) are planning something big: A concert tour through Germany and Japan – together with a first-class Japanese orchestra. The first idea originated at the Japanese Film Festival 2017 with our friends from Nippon Connection. Now the JKPB is preparing intensively for the realization of this intercultural concert project in the run-up to the Olympic Games 2020 in Tokyo. At the same time, they do not want to lose sight of the good cause and BKB charity. Thank you very much for everything – we look forward to being able to report more about it soon.
BKB Charity supports the social commitment of the dance school “Instituto Katiana Pena” in Brazil.
Bom Jardim is the name of a district marked by poverty, violence and crime on the outskirts of Fortaleza, a city of millions in northeastern Brazil. Katiana Pena and her team have been helping children and young people to escape the lack of prospects at this social hotspot for years. In the dance school of the same name, Instituto Katiana Pena, more than 500 young people are already learning to create courage and hope and to improve their living conditions in a community of art and culture. Regular trips and performances in the region create new horizons and offer the opportunity to escape from the difficult environment.
BKB Charity supports the work of Katiana Pena and plans a further future cooperation in different areas. At Christmas time, for example, BKB Charity was involved in financing food packages for needy members of the dance school whose parents have little money to support their families. The aid packages included a variety of basic foodstuffs for the joy of the children as well as Christmas treats.
