For around 70 years, we have been committed to social justice in Germany and effectively represent the concerns of older people and people with disabilities vis-à-vis authorities, social courts and politicians. In Berlin and Brandenburg, we also operate various support and advice centres, for example in the areas of participation, care and mobility.More about the organisation
With the "Brush Post" campaign, we would like to bring variety, colour and joy into the corona everyday life of care facilities, because the corona crisis is hitting them particularly hard at the moment. The residents are to notice that they are not alone.
Whether you paint or do handicrafts, write little letters and poems - there are no limits to your creativity. Ink or colored pencil drawings, decorative handicrafts, window pictures, action painting, spring photos, poems or thoughts... Everyone can make, write or paint something that will please the patient.
Then simply put the artwork in an envelope and send it to one of the participating care institutions or bring it by. The addresses of our facilities are listed here.
Thanks in advance for the support!
You want to engage yourself for others from home.
For this volunteering opportunity you don't need any German skills.
You can start right away. But we would appreciate a photo of your artwork. Or share them yourself in your social networks with the #Pinselpost!
It is ok to only help once.
Am I covered by accident and/or casualty insurance during the project?
For this project, we ask you to arrange an individual meeting.
