Oh my heart! Yesterday’s Warm up #5 at Markthalle Neun was soooo successful! We collected over 440 pieces plus 466,19 Euro!! Which is more than double from last year! You all really came out and schlepped and donated and contributed so, so much!

Coming Up: Warm Up 5

Hope you had a nice first wintry weekend with loads of cosy blankets, hot beverages and a working heating. Icy temperatures can be so much fun! If you have the funds to make them so. Not everyone is so lucky to be able to afford the most insulating jacket or the thickest boots to enjoy below zero, especially if you’re in a situation that doesn’t allow you to work or face obstacles you’re currently not able to remove. And I assume most of you reading this have one or three winter items to spare at home, maybe you’re even currently thinking about where to donate that skiing jacket you’ll never use. For the fifth time, I’ll be collecting winter warmers to donate to people in need Warm Up #5. This year, it’s happening on December 16th at Markthalle Neun’s Breakfast Market. And yes, I’ve got some fabulous rewards for your effort.

Recap: Stil in Berlin’s Warm Up #4

Last Friday, we celebrated our fourth Warm Up at Voo Store, collecting coats, boots, tents, and such for local volunteer organisation  Kreuzberg Hilft.
And while munching on Tausendsünd’s excellent Speculoos cookies and slurping hot beverages from Companion Coffee, 70 donors came around and donated 180 pieces and 172 Euros in total! At the end of the night, many of those were rewarded with the prizes we collected from local businesses, and the guys from Boxie24 schlepped over 30 filled boxes out to be delivered directly to Kreuzberg Hilft.

Coming Up: Warm Up 4

It’s that time of the year again! It’s getting cold and very uncomfortable in this city, and while it’s easy to survive the chilly season when you have enough funds for a warm coat, all the hot soups, and a cosy home to hibernate in, it’s one of the most grueling times for those not that lucky. And because I’m sure most of you have one or three extra warm jackets in their closet, or a pair of boots to spare, I’m asking you to come and donate them at Warm Up No.4, a clothing donation event benefiting Kreuzberg Hilft! I’ll make your effort worth your while, promised.

Recap: Stil in Berlin’s Warm Up 3

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!
