Dear Friends,

On the 20th of December we set up on the Casinoplatz in Bern, Switzerland, to FILL THE CROSS! It was a successful event and fundraiser and we thank you for being a part through your donation on Global Giving!

The International Blue Cross will use the funds donated via the various channels around the world to continue our fight against addiction-related harm. This year we will be slimming down our project portfolio to focus on three key areas: Life Skills interventions for youth, Self-Help groups as a means for treatment and aftercare and advocacy at the global and local level to include alcohol as a topic of consideration in ALL policies.

That you for your support to the International Blue Cross. We invite you to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to see how your generosity impacts the lives of people in more than 43 countries around the world!

We wish you a wonderful 2015!

Kind regards,

Mischa Rychener

Fundraising and Networking Officer

Dear friends,

Christmas conjures up nostalgic feelings of warmth, peace and special moments shared with loved ones. It is a special time of year to celebrate with family and share with those less fortunate than ourselves. For children who grow up in a home where one or both parents are alcoholics, often times the holidays are no celebration at all. It is a time when they are reminded of their feelings of shame, disappointment and anger. Blue Cross volunteers and staff around the world work with the children and families they serve to make sure that the holidays is a special time that can be celebrated. They organized baking sessions, decorating and special outings for the children to enjoy the magic of the season!


We thank you for your continued support, especially during this time of year, and wish you a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2015!

Kind regards,

Your friends at the International Blue Cross
