What is this commitment about?
In the hotter season, high temperatures can become life-threatening for homeless people. People without shelter often stay outside or on the street all day. They usually do not have access to cooled and sheltered spaces and thus experience hot temperatures very differently. In addition to drinking water, they often lack many other things, which means that the vital supply of drinking water is not always a top priority for them.
What are 5-Minute Commitments?
With our 5-Minute Commitments, we want to inspire you to easily integrate commitment into your everyday life. They are independent of non-profit organizations and allow you to individually get involved with people and nature in your neighborhood.
The next time you go to a supermarket on a hot summer day, simply take a bottle of water with you and give it to a person in need. Or if you see a person who may be suffering from the intense heat, you can also actively ask them if they would like a drink and then get them one.
No special requirements are necessary for this commitment.
Like to take a moment to get into conversation with the person you want to give the drink to. (Of course, only if she wants you to.)
This project is location independent.
We are a social enterprise from Berlin with a big dream: We want a world in which everyone contributes to a better and more sustainable future according to their possibilities and regardless of time budget, language or previous knowledge. For this purpose, we gather on vostel.de numerous engagement offers from non-profit organizations that are looking for volunteers. By doing this, we show concrete possibilities for action in order to become socially active and would like to motivate above all the younger generations to get involved for a better world.More about the organisation
