Dealing with discarded items in an appreciative manner is important to me. I have made it my mission to find suitable local contact points, institutions and organizations to provide socio-economical solutions for discarded items. This includes e.g. cold aid, children’s homes and Oxfam stores. For our cooperation I provide a suitable list. Don’t waste – reuse!

Berliner Kältehilfe
Clothing donations, emergency overnight stays and more for homeless people

Oxfam Deutschland
The stores of the emergency aid and development organization are grateful recipients of donations of clothes, books and other goods.

Bicycles for refugees
A book donation platform of the non-profit SinneWerk GmbH


I donate 7% of my earnings as a professional organizer consultant to UN Refugee Aid for family tents. I don’t add this money to my hourly wage, it comes out of my paycheck. So you don’t pay more and at the same time by hiring me you contribute to a good cause. A roof over your head – to protect you from the cold or also the heat – is something everyone wants. A tent is the first shelter for many refugees after a flight.

On my travels I have met many people who are not as well equipped as most people in the so-called western countries. Everyone has his or her own baggage to carry, but often it is poorly distributed. I wish I could do magic in this respect! Since I have not yet succeeded in doing so, I try to make a small positive contribution in another way and to help people who are less fortunate.
