Let me say it like this: You guys really showed up last Friday. When I announced this year’s Warm Up 3 and the very limited list of things we’d accept as donations for Kreuzberg Hilft, I wasn’t sure whether we would get enough people to come out on a dark, cold Friday night and bring us the coats and boots they didn’t need. Turned out, my worries weren’t necessary – we collected 134 pairs of shoes and boots, 203 jackets and coats, as well as over 480 Euros in only two hours!

Winter is coming and, in Berlin, winter is shit. It’s awful, unnecessary, and too long, and it generally makes life very hard (and complaining easy). Of course I say this as a person who is actually able to afford a decent coat and a cosy house to cuddle up in when temperatures drop below bearable, but there are too many people who are simply not that lucky. Many lack the funds to buy warm clothing for all their family members, and many don’t even have a house with working heating. Which is why I am delighted to announce a new round of my beloved clothing-donation rally: Stil in Berlin’s WARM UP 3!
Yesterday saw the second installment of Warm Up, a clothing donation event in benefit of refugees at Voo Store. I am still amazed that so many of you came and donated loads, and loads of kilos. All together we managed to collect 819 kilograms of winter warmers and 463 Euro, that went directly to Kreuzberg Hilft who are distributing all donations to the city’s shelters. I am speechless!
I can’t believe it either, but it’s already the week of Warm Up 2, our clothing donation event in benefit of refugees and Kreuzberg Hilft at Voo Store this Sunday! It’s pretty easy – you donate clothing (according to the list below), get one raffle ticket per kilo donated, and then win amazing prizes by fabulous Berlin companies.
