This year again, our panellists donated their mingle points for a good cause. With mingle fundraising campaigns in 2016-2017, we are able to contribute to some great projects and make the lives of so many children that little bit better.
In Germany and France, our panel members supported the work of Plan International Germany and Plan International France to protect girls and boys from having to work in the Tanzanian gold mines. In this way, children who had been working in the mines received school materials and a uniform, and can take part in school lessons again to improve their chances of a better future.
In the UK, we worked together with dreams come true, a UK based organization which fulfils the heart’s desire of seriously ill children. Thanks to our panellists, several children have had their dreams come true, for example 14-year-old Liam will be able to look forward to a new laptop and can while away the time during his numerous hospital trips by playing games and watching films.
Both, in Germany and France, the fundraising campaigns raised approx. 5.000 €. In the UK, the panellists donated 2.000 €. These amazing amounts surpassed the goal we set for this year’s campaign of 6.700 €!
The most generous donor of all three countries comes from Bavaria. The 67-year-old has been a member since 2006 and donated 70 € worth of mingle points, so that the children In Tanzania can receive a school education. A 68-year-old panellist from Normandy also donated mingle points to the value of 50 € for Plan International France. The most generous donor in the UK was a 42 year old panellist from Yorkshire, who helped fulfill the wish of seriously ill children by donating 50 € worth of mingle points.
Many thanks to these people and all the other panellists for the generous donations, to our partner organizations: Plan International and dreams come true and of course to you our customers who have made these donation campaigns possible with your projects!
