8 large, easy-care plants for the center ÜBERLEBEN

At the ÜBERLEBEN center, refugees, some of whom are severely traumatized, receive psychotherapeutic and social work support. They come to us regularly to work through their experiences and find a way to heal and return to a self-determined life. In order to make their stay on our premises as pleasant as possible, we would like to make our center more inviting by adding green plants, among other things. To this end, we are currently looking for 8 large, low-maintenance houseplants (at least 1.20 m tall, must be able to manage with very little light).

If you are moving house and can't take all the plants with you, for example, or have leftovers from office liquidations, we would be happy to receive a short message here on vostel or by e-mail to pr@ueberleben.org. We can also organize a pick-up for the plants within Berlin.

Thank you very much! :)

Fruit crates 30 x 50 cm - used / slightly defective

We are planning a green roof project for some of our garden sheds next spring.
The substrate on the shed roof is to be planted with the classics of roof greening such as stonecrop and fat hen....
Here you can see a small model.

We want to plant this substrate in disused fruit crates, approx. 30 x 50 cm on the roof.
We need about 60 fruit crates for this, and we would like to use used, possibly slightly defective crates for sustainability reasons.

We would be very happy, if we could get used crates from the fruit or vegetable trade or from growers.

Sleeping bags, sleeping mats, warm clothes + shoes for people without shelter / DRK warming bus

With the start of the cold relief season, the DRK warmth bus will be on the streets of the capital from 6 p.m. to midnight every day from the beginning of November to the end of March. In view of the refugee crisis, the DRK in Berlin is expecting an increase in the number of aid missions in the city during the upcoming winter season. During the winter months, the Berlin Red Cross warming bus team, consisting of volunteers and staff with socio-educational skills, will travel every evening to those places where experience has shown that homeless people are often found. In addition, tips from the public are followed up if addresses are reported by telephone where people in obvious need are staying.

The volunteers distribute clothing, sleeping mats, sleeping bags and hot tea on site. If necessary and by arrangement, those affected will also be taken to emergency accommodation.

The team urgently needs:

  • Sleeping bags
  • Sleeping mats
  • Warm clothing, socks, shoes

Car trailers up to 3.5 tons - box trailers

Initial situation:

Our non-profit association exists since 2018. Our main source of income is our large village festival with Unimog and Schleppertreffen that we carry out for 17 years in Biberach in the village center. 

Through donations and purchases, the association has a variety of materials for holding the festival including umbrellas, seating, advertising banners, crockery, electrical equipment, signs, cash organization means, etc.. These utensils are currently scattered over many different households and garages and must be gathered again for the festival date.

This type of storage is also not really appropriate, so shrinkage occurs or damage occurs.

In particular due to the fact that for the clearly increased village celebration 2023 still further things must be purchased the question arises about a reasonable storage and transport possibility.

Solution approach:

Neither the municipality of Biberach nor private supporters see themselves in the position to offer a suitable camp on foreseeable time. Therefore, the executive committee has come up with the idea to procure a "rolling clubhouse" in the form of a used box trailer. The advantages of such a suitcase trailer are:

  • it is lockable and thus safely protected from theft
  • the contents are protected from the weather (moisture, sunlight)
  • the inventory is always accessible
  • the clarity is given
  • for the running costs (insurance / tax etc) has found a sponsor

About an donations we would be pleased.

Outdoor candles for cooking and giving warmth - we are happy to receive large numbers of pieces

We collect outdoor candles for cooking and giving warmth. We also gladly take tin cans and wax remnants. We need a lot of them for winter aid in Ukraine.

If you are creative and love to do handicrafts, you can donate whole boxes full of finished outdoor candles. With these small actions we experience that also here on site something can be "done". Many small actions in many places help. 

From Ukraine we get the feedback: "These candles are really very good, because they produce not only light, but also heat and in critical situations help people to warm up. The candles are in great demand, we also make them and send them to the combat regions. Oksana"

Clothing donations so important - but we have a request....

Donations of clothes from the public are unfortunately a laborious business and not always a pleasure.
It is not uncommon to confuse the aid organizations with the garbage collection... But it is also a help that arrives, because volunteers are heroes and have perseverance in sifting and sorting.

Donors can bring us 2 bags of clothes each and drop them off at the gate! Fixed acceptance days in winter 2022/2023 are Sunday (12-14 h) and Wednesday (10-16 h).

Thank you for looking in advance also for quality and usefulness. Is it very impertinent to ask you also look for it yourself and if necessary also wash before?! After all, we want to help properly ...

Video projector for events on the topic of burnout and depression

Corona has taught us at Bundesverband Burnout und Depression e.V. to accept online events. We, like others, converted all events from presence to online. This was technically relatively easy and feasible without equipment. We will continue to offer online-only events, but the future format will be hybrid. This way, the advantages of online, e.g., greater reach, can be combined with the advantages of presence, such as personal contact.

Unfortunately, the technical challenges are greater with a hybrid model. We already have an external camera, a mixer, cables, adapters, but what we lack is a beamer so that the participants present in person can see the online participants. Model and brand of the beamer are not important to us.

He told us: "They need these children here now!"
