On Saturday, 12 sewing enthusiasts met and sewed pillows for 4 hours. The pillow shape corresponds to an angel. These pillows are guardian angel pillows for our project. These pillows are then sold at events and the money is made available again to social products.

Annual stand at the Wernigeröder chocolate festival "ChochoART!" - October 31st

In October last year, our sciety was represented again at the chocolate festival "chocolART" in Wernigerode. As every year, our stand was right next to the historic town hall building. At our booth you could, among other things, get the wonderful chocolate from "Wergona®" at a sensational price of only € 1.00 each. There was also the world's best French chocolate cake from the bakery and pastry shop "Silberbach". The money we earned is going to the association's work.

POST FOR DAMIAN!

The little Damian will be on October 25th - 10 years old, he is now already many months in the hospice and the last days, maybe weeks have dawned. Unfortunately, he cann't eat, based by his health condition. Damian wishes that many people are thinking of him on his birthday and maybe they can write a postcard. The result was heart-moving. Damian received 152 postcards. 

TRAIN OF THE FUTURE.

On October 2nd we started a great new project. On a train journey from Halle to Wernigerode we informed the passengers. Informed about cancer, about our work in our organization for children with cancer and how each one can help.

Helping can be easy. Mouth open and cotton buds in. With this typing later suitable bone marrow donors can be found.

FAMILY #200 WAS OUR GUEST

Great anniversary at the "Bernstein See" (Amber Lake). The Mahler family from the Erzgebirge (southern part of Germany) is now our 200th family in our recreational complex am Bernsteinsee. Our chairtman Avery visited the family and, as a surprise, organized a pirate meal in the lake restaurant. We wish the family much strength and all the best and look forward to the next 200th families.

Strong support fo the construction of the fence
Strong support fo the construction of the fence

A new fence is needed (March/April 2019) - The outdoor area of our "Haus am Bernsteinsee" has increased by a small piece of forest and will be transformed in near future into an active playground where the children can play and relax. For the better protection of this specific area a new fence was needed. We were aligned about to finsih this work before Easter holidays and as long the temperatures are above 5°Celsius. 

The following work was part of this task: dismantle and reassemble the fence elements, lifting holes for the new fence posts, cast in the posts, removing several roots and we cut down the trees and much much more.Based by adverse weather conditions, we were able to do most of the planned work until dusk. Exactly one week later, we completed the remaining work in another appointment.

Students donate 250 € (April 2019) - At the end of last week, the class 5a of the loval country school Grovesmühle  handed over a large part of their Christmas market revenue to our Verein für krebskranke Kinder Harz e.V. (Association for children with cancer, Harz e.V.). The donation of this 250 € will be used completelyfor projects of the association, to support children with cancer and their relatives. 

We are so touched to get this donation from children for children and can't say in words what we feel.Thank you so much kids! Well done!

Buy furniture & help children (May 2019) - The furniture store "Porta" supported us in a very special way. On this day (May, 7th), the furniture store PORTA donates 10% of the daily turnover to our association. The company has also announced this campaign in its advertising to generate as many customers and thus donations and from this perspective it was not only a great promotion to generate donations, but also a good advertisement for our association. 

Local companies who take responsibility and are ready to assist us. Thanks Porta!

TOY STORE SUPPORT-The toy store Mosel's Kinderland located in our "Rathauspassagen" in Halberstadt is already almost from the beginning of the existence of our "Verein für krebskrabke Kinde e.V." an important partner with regular support for our different projects. We are really proud that we have this entrepreneur and their business for many years on our side, because not only during the Holiday Season, but even for special events like birthdays of our little patients, we can find always an open ear and always some good ideas.

Many customers of this toy store have donated and with these funds the owner was able to provide a lot of nice toys to the parents association in Halle/Saale and to several Children's Cancer stationsaround the Harz area.  

SPRING CLEANING 2019 - In order to be able to welcome numerous families to our holiday resort "Haus am Bernsteinsee" starting this spring, we have to do some work. Something needs to be cleaned, pained and repaired. For the various dates in March for this Spring Cleaning, numerous volunteers have rased the hands again. Starting from Easter we can welcome the first families in this lovely area to spend some time without thinking all the time about cancler.

Hairdresser "Haargenau"
Hairdresser "Haargenau"

June 2018 : When chemotherapy causes hair cancer in children with blood cancer, human hair wigs are required. A hair donation lowers the costs.

A hairdressing salon located in Wernigerode handed over for this purpose a donation to our "Association for children suffering from cancer Harz". An unusual donation transfer takes place regularly in Wernigerode. Instead of money or in-kind donations, it is cut hair that is donated to wigs for children with leukemia. Since March, we got 11 hair donations from this hairdressing salon. An great activity!

May 2018: Our project "Haus am Bernsteinsee" part of the association "Krebskranke Kinder Harz e.V." opened their holiday complex for different visitors. The visitors were able to inform themselves about the possibilities to spend a holiday together with their children suffering from cancer and also to make an appropriate reservation. In addition more than 100 bikers (all members of a local motorsport club) also visting our location "Haus am Bernsteinsee".  It was not the first visit of this great association of motorsport enthusiasts and once again they handed over an incredible gift: they donated 11.111 Euro! Hard guys with a big heart for kids.
