Donations

We believe in the idea behind the Giving What We Can initiative.
In particular, if everyone gives a small but meaningful amount of their income to good causes - and if these are scientifically vetted to actually do a lot of good with the money they are given - then the lives of many can be improved.

Donations in 2022 so far: 1,053.10 €

The situation in Ukraine is terrible right now. We donated 229.65 € to the organisation Voices of Children, which cares for children in Eastern Ukraine that have been traumatised by the war, as well as 200.00 € via Libereco to Vostok SOS, who provide humanitarian emergency aid directly within Ukraine. 150.00 € went to Bassliner, which organized evacuation bus tours. To help people who are openly protesting against war and violence inside Russia and are being put under massive pressure, we have also given 123.45 € to Anarchist Black Cross Moscow. Finally, 100.00 € went to the evacuateafricansfromua initiative, which aims to enable any and all people to leave Ukraine, which currently is blocked or made much more difficult e.g. just based on someone's skin color.
Also, we donated 250.00 € to the German NGO Nabu, to support the creation of nature preserves for the lesser spotted eagle. Have fun little eagle! :)
