Winter is coming. It’s time to double up on everything – from layers, to coffees, to warm conversations. That is why on Thursday 28th November at 10am (CET), the German Whole Foods organisation, Bio Company, is doubling donations made to Rise Foundation e.V! 

This is an amazing opportunity to support homeless people in the run up to Christmas and beyond. With over 20,000 homeless people in Berlin alone, we are looking to people from all walks of life and companies of all shapes and sizes to help us make this a success.

This can be in the form of a one-time donation, or by helping raise money through another means  - something we’d be happy to brainstorm with you!

The money raised will go towards sustaining existing projects, which includes distributing delicious vegan meals for the people living on the streets of Berlin, along with clothes, toiletries and sanitary products. These items are accompanied by a pocket size booklet that holds information on centres in Berlin that provide, shelter, medical care, day care and counselling.

But this is just the beginning. We have so many ideas that can better the lives of the people living on our streets, from creating a number of tea and coffee points across the city, to organising social events like group meals and open air cinema nights.

We believe connection is one of the most important aspects of our society and we are excited to double our chances to really help make a difference to people’s lives.  

So join us on Thursday 28th November to make one euro two. Please donate to the link here once the clock hits 10am (CET) (and not before – otherwise it won’t be doubled) and please don’t hesitate to get in touch - we’d love to hear about any ideas you have. Let the season of giving commence!

We hope you will be willing to participate and help #makeadifference

With many thanks, the RF family!

Please note: Bio Company is supporting Rise Foundation, e.V, alongside two other charities in Hamburg and Dresden up to a total of 10000€, resulting in a potential 20000€ to help the people of Germany.
