WEAR HOPE – DONATE HOPE
To help Syrian children in need, BRIGITTE and Save the Children launched the “A Scarf for Life” campaign with our support in 2014. With your commitment, we have brought this fundraising campaign to a new high in 2021. “EIN SCHAL FÜRS LEBEN” has cracked the 2.5 million euro mark in its eighth year. What a great result!
In view of your great willingness to donate, we are almost speechless. In 2021, over 23,000 wool packages and around 2,400 finished knitted scarves were sold. In addition, Save the Children received direct donations of almost 128,000 euros. This raised around 371,000 euros. The total proceeds since the beginning of the campaign are now an incredible 2.5 million euros! A mega success that touches and inspires us.
The KNITTING PACKAGE can be found everywhere LANA GROSSA is available – please see our sources of supply.
WHAT IS THE “EIN SCHAL FÜRS LEBEN”?
Self-knitted or bought: The scarf is a symbol for all those who are committed to helping children on the run. A symbol of hope that everyone can wear and donate. Show your solidarity and wear the scarf on the day of action, Human Rights Day on December 10!
HOW DO WE HELP WITH A SCARF?
From each scarf, 10 euros will be donated to Save the Children aid projects for children who have fled inside Syria or to neighboring countries. This has enabled them to build educational facilities in Lebanon, for example, where children can learn for their future in safety.
Syrian children urgently need our support, not only to survive, but also to develop in the best possible way. Every child deserves a chance!
Who wears our scarf on December 10th, sets a sign against wars and helps Syrian children!
