Buddy Bear Help e.V.
“Every cent for the children“ – with this guiding principle, the “Buddy Bear Help e.V.“ guarantees that 100 per cent of all donations and auction proceeds are used for the individual projects helping children in need. All organisational and administrative costs are covered by the members of the charitable association.
With the aim to provide fast and unbureaucratic help for children in need in the native countries of the Buddy Bear artists, we have been able to realise many projects since the association was founded in 2004. To name just a few: Financing life-saving heart operations in La Paz (Bolivia) as well as several school projects providing ongoing support for individual children in Jamaica and Sri Lanka and for schools in Nigeria. Two very special projects made it possible to build schools in Malawi and in Tanzania.
In 2009, we decided to include Berlin in our association’s range of activities. We actively supported the creation of a new location for the children & youth centre DIE ARCHE. Since the official opening in September 2009, the Buddy Bear Help e.V. has paid the rent for the premises of this new ARCHE in Berlin-Wedding.
