This Christmas season BilinGO Primary School donated approximately 350 gifts to “Geschenke gegen kindertraenen” which means “Gifts to fight children’s tears. The initiative, run by Jasmin Flegel, collects and distributes gifts to children who have to spend Christmas in local and regional hospitals.
Thank you to all BilinGO parents, children and community members who came together to donate gifts to this worthy cause. The children who received the presents in the hospital over Christmas were so delighted!
Here is a quote from Jasmin Flegel the organizer of the initiative:
“Incredibly proud! That’s the best way to say it…. both of Marc and I, and all other helpers, donors, drivers, parcel collectors, Santa Clauses, angels and helpers on site! You make MY Christmas 2017 into something really mega special! Collecting 2,000 gifts, packing them, sorting them and then distributing them to more than 15 collection points – that would not have been possible alone! Thank you very much for the light you helped bring to the children’s eyes in Cologne, Bergisch Gladbach and Leverkusen.” (Jasmin Flegel, organizer)
