Hi,
my name is Johannes and i am an addict to the boardgaming hobby. :-) I tend to buy too many games and all the unplayed games on my shelves are making me feel anxious. Beside of that I am actually not happy with the efforts I put into making this world a better place.

So this geeklist has multiple aims.

- First of all. I want to raise money for projects and organizations I consider worth supporting.

- Second, I want to put these organizations into spotlight and encourage other geeks to donate money.

- And last but not least this is a great way to streamline my collection. :-)

So how will this work?

Every month I will put a game up for auction.

Usually the auction will run from the first to the last day of month.

In the item description I will also introduce an organization.

The money raised by the auction will complety go to this organization.

After the auction is over I will set up an marketplace item so BGG gets its 3% and after the winner has paid I will donate the money to the organization.

No matter how much money is raised by the item worldwide shipping costs are always on me (usually 14,99€).


What can you do to support?
- Bid early, bid high
- Spread the word
- Geekmail me suggestions for organizations to support in upcoming auctions
- Geekmail me if you want to help by adding stuff to an item
- Geekmail me with item ideas for upcoming auctions
- Maybe you want to jump in one month and offer an item
- ...




So, lets get this started.

Every auction winner will get this MB: mb
You can show your support spotting this MB: mb

The first item I put up for auction is a copy of Kingdom Builder.
German Edition. Some necessary text - easily memorized or small crib sheet.
New and in foil.


This in one of my most played games and I can really recommend it. Actually it is quite inexpensive in Germany and I bought a few copies for trading purposes.

This Auction will last till 30st of June (random time).


Starting Bid: 1€ (no reserve, please bid in full Euros)

Free Worldwide Shipping is on me!


This month organization:


Missionskreis St. Gallus


I was raised christian but quit the catholic church a few years ago. Since that left me with spare cash i saved on not having to pay church taxes anymore, I decided to donate the saved money to charity.

Ironically one of the first organizations I choose was a catholic one. :-)
My former girlfriend (a Hare-Krishna-Devotee^^) introduced me to an organization of her hometown: Missionskreis St. Gallus.

By spending 35€ a year you foster the school education of a child in Nkol-Avolo Cameroon for a whole year. I for myself am now fostering a few childs. In Nkol-Avolo there is a mission station run by catholic nuns.
The good thing of this organization in my eyes is, that related to bigger organizations no money is lost in first world for administration.
Once a year I am getting personal letters and pictures from Nkol-Avolo and also once a year Missionskreis St Gallus writes a letter about what has happenend in Nkol-Avolo the past year.

Sadly, there is few information about this great project online. Hopefully this list will help to get it more attention.
Here is how you can donate directly to Missionskreis St. Gallus:

Quote:
Kirchengemeinde St. Gallus

Konto Nr.: 34014205 - Volksbank Lahr - BLZ: 682 900 00

Stichwort: Patenschaft 2014 Nkol-Avolo Kamerun.

Das Team des Missionskreises freut sich auf Ihren Besuch und Unterstützung.

Missionskreis Oberharmersbach

The are running help projects in different part of the world (e.g. Kenya, Philippines...). You can learn more about HHF following this link:
http://www.hardcore-help.com/current-projects/
Their site is written in english.

Here is a quote from their site regarding HHF's work in Kenya:

Medical Camps in Nakuru Kenya

All of the services are provided for free and include antenatal for pregnant mothers, immunizations for babies, family planning, nutritional counseling and supplements, HIV testing, counseling and outpatient clinical services.

Two weeks ago a visited a very cool streetart theater festival here in Frankfurt called Sommerwerft. ->www.sommerwerft.de

Part of the festival is a fleamarket (Flowmarkt), which happens every sunday. There i meet Björn, a fellow geek of my Frankfurt guild, which some time ago used to come to our weekly boardgaming meetings.

He is working as an engineer and was running a charity tent for the organization Ingenieure ohne Grenzen (Engineers without borders).

To raise money he was selling part of his boardgame collection. That way I ended up with a copy of In the Shadow of the Emperor and learned about the great organization Ingineure ohne Grenzen.

Their recent project is called: "Kambodscha: Sonnenernergie Für Neue Hoffnung". Goal is to create a energy solution for a village in Cambodia which is based on sun energy and can be maintained by the villagers itself.
In this village 30km away from Siem Reap moneyless women are living with their children.

Ingenieure ohne Grenzen is a worldwide acting charitable non-profit-organization, which tries to help by providing solutions based on engineering science.

I learned of this initiative by the former professional soccer player Benjamin Adrion, who used to play for FC St.Pauli - a soccer club I really like. Altought there is nearly no space left in my heart next to the love for my hometown club 1. FC Köln ->
http://www.fcstpauli.com/home/news
http://www.fc-koeln.de/

Back back to the initiative of this month. Here is what Viva Con Agua writes about themselve:
Quote:
Water is Life!
Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli is a charitable organisation based in St. Pauli, Hamburg (Germany), campaigning for clean drinking water worldwide.


What is Viva con Agua?

Besides the air we breathe, water is the most fundamental source of life.

It is the child's physician that ultimately decides if a child is eligible.

All money raised by this month will go to Die Arche http://kinderprojekt-arche.eu/

As a big fan of german soccer club 1. FC Köln the biogaraphy of Lukas Podolski was given to me by my aunt as a christmas present (http://www.amazon.de/Dranbleiben-Warum-Talent-nur-Anfang/dp/...). A book I otherwise would never had read (probably ghost-written, biography of an under 30-year-old, not my type of literature...).
The book relates Podolskis childhood as a young immigrant and ambitious soccer player in Germany to some children the "Die Arche"-foundation helps.

What can I say. The book somehow got me in the end and the work "Die Arche" does, deeply impressed me.

The organization aims to empower children from not so priviled families by offering them meaningful free-time-activities, projects for health promotion, holiday camps and christmas projects. They are based at several cities in Germany.

For those of you who don't know about the organization here a wikipedia quote:

Quote:
Der Verein Die Arche – Christliches Kinder- und Jugendwerk e. V. ist ein von Pastor Bernd Siggelkow 1995 in Berlin-Hellersdorf gegründetes evangelikales Hilfswerk,[1] das Tagesstätten für sozial benachteiligte Kinder in verschiedenen deutschen Städten betreibt. Mit dem Ziel, Kinder stark zu machen, werden Programme zur Gesundheitsförderung, Ferienfreizeiten und Weihnachtsprojekte durchgeführt.[2] Auf diese Weise werden Kindern sinnvolle Freizeitmöglichkeiten geboten, die sonst überwiegend auf der Straße leben würden. Das Projekt setzt u. a. Streetworker auf Kinderspielplätzen in sozial schwachen Gegenden ein, um Kindern Beratung in Problemsituationen anzubieten, insbesondere bei sexuellem Missbrauch sowie bei familiären und schulischen Problemen.

Gemeinsam leben Frankfurt - Die Staufer


This month up for auction is a copy of The Staufer Dynasty.
It is the german edition but the game has no necessary in-game-text. The game is in very good condition.

All money raised by this month will go to Gemeinsam leben - Frankfurt http://gemeinsamleben-frankfurt.de/

After finishing school I rather by chance did my civilian service at a integrative primary school. As I later learned its is one of the most renowned in Germany.

It was a totally new world for me and impressed me deeply. Despite my former plans I ended up studiying special needs education.
Most of all I was interested in integrative education and the international developments leading to inclusive education.

My time at the university is now more than a decade in the past and I've been working in primary schools for years now trying to create inclusive conditions in classrooms so every child hopefully can benefit from the arrangement.

I strongly believe it is necessary to fight for an inclusive school system and for the terms and conditions to change so no child is excluded or bereft of it's right to attend the general school system.

As I learned in the past years, change in school system is only possible if there are strong advocates for an idea.

Thats why I believe organizations like Gemeinsamleben - Frankfurt are very important. Even though Germany ratified the UNO-Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in 2008 parents are often in deep need for support when trying to archieve for their childs what by law should not be worth any discussion.


Thats why I would like to encourage you this month to donate to Gemeinsam leben - Frankfurt

Brot statt Böller - Design Town and Card City


This month up for auction is a copy of Flip City.
It is the english edition (english card text and rules). The game is new and in foil and not yet in distribution outside of Taiwan.



On top I add a new and in foil copy of Card City. My favourite filler game. Its a multilanguage edition (french, english, german) and has no necessary in-game-text.




All money raised by this month will go to Brot statt Böller http://www.brot-statt-boeller.de


Brot statt Böller wants us to spend money on helping the poor instead of buying fireworks. Brot statt Böller was founded in 1982 and actually has two projects in Kenia and Simbabwe focussing on helping street urchin.
100% of the money donated to Brot statt Böller is used for the actual project - so there is no money lost for administration or advertising like at bigger organisations.

I personally stopped buying fireworks two decades ago and believe it to be one of the better choices I made in life. In my eyes it is a big waste of ressources and a even bigger mess when one thinks about all the waste the fireworks actually leave behind.

A few years ago I spend New Years Eve in Vienna and was deeply impressed to see that all private firework was banned and there was only one big one for everyone. In my eyes a wonderful compromise.


So instead on going wild on fireworks tonight, I want you this month to join in to help the street urchins in Kenia and Simbabwe.

Amadeu Antonio Stiftung - Bora Bora


This month up for auction is a copy of Bora Bora.
It is the german edition (german rules). The game is new and in foil. The game has no necessary in-game-text.



All money raised by this month will go to Amadeu Antonio Stiftung http://www.amadeu-antonio-stiftung.de/


Amadeu Antonio Stiftung is an organization who helps to finance iniatives for civic empowerment, democratic culture and against right-wing extremism. The foundation is named after Amadeu Antonio Kiowa, who was beaten to death by Neo-Fascists in 1987 in a small town in east Germany.

You can learn more about the foundation following this link:
https://www.amadeu-antonio-stiftung.de/eng/about-us/

The site is has an english part too.

The last few months were disturbing to frightening in Germany. Every monday Pegida-Movement in Dresden brought more than 10000 people on the street to demonstrate for right-wing, conservative ideas. Other cities had similar smaller marches.

Luckily, with a little delay, the counter-movement also grew strong and is now outnumbering those right-wing marches in every city except Dresden.
Due to internal disputes Pegida now hopefully seems to fall apart.

Nonetheless this whole movement is a very alarming thing. Right-wing ideas are spreading in parts of Germany.
I deeply believe in multiculturalism and the obligation of richer countries to give refuge and shelter to those in need.

Thats why I encourage you to donate to Amadeu Antonio Stiftung to help them preventing that fascist ideas further spread.

Dječja Udruga Hrabrost - First train to Nürnberg

Dječja Udruga Hrabrost - DUH was suggested to me by

who also volunteers for DUH.
I can totally relate to the work DUH does due to my own family history and my own work biography.

Here is what Goran writes about DUH:

Quote:
Hello everyone!

Dječja Udruga Hrabrost or DUH can be translated as Children Association Courage and our acronym can be translated as Spirit

Since our web page is on Croatian only, let me say a few words about it.

It is a non profit humanitarian association which through many activities helps to kids with special needs and disabilities by strengthening their independence and self confidence, while at the same time we try to develop awareness about their dignity and equality in society.
All of that is described very well in our promo video here:



Our main activity is traveling to Easter Pilgrimage in Lourdes, which is a great experience for a kids. -> http://www.hcpt.org.uk/pilgrimages/easter-pilgrimage/
We are traveling there for 12 years, and have been developing and growing since then. From a van and a few children first year, through the bus and one group of about 20 people and kids, we have developed to this years three groups of total 69 people and are going together with one group from Bosnia and Hercegovina, and are traveling with charter flight there.
Our association travels to Lourdes with great help from the Irish Pilgrimage Trust, which can be seen here. A bit old text, but I hope to update that soon.
-> http://www.irishpilgrimagetrust.com/ or http://www.irishpilgrimagetrust.com/AboutUs/DUHCroatia.aspx

Our main problem every year is to raise enough money for kids to travel there, and I want to ensure you that every cent we raise is highly appreciated and used for that purpose.
If you wish to donate, you can do that with paypal or credit cards here. I think that paying to our bank account in Croatia includes a bit high fee, so this is a better way of doing it. ->http://www.duh.hr/#!uplati-odmah/c1fhi

If you got any question or doubt, feel free to contact me

As a sweetener, I would like to ad a postcard signed by 20 kids and volunteers of my group 622, together with photo of all three Croatian groups in Lourdes. I can also ad a rosary or something from Lourdes if you'd like that.

Many thanks to Johannes for seeing our association as one that is worth for putting into spotlight.


I think this is a great cause and I hope you will gladly join in to raise some money for DUH.

You can donate directly to DUH via paypal:

Here is what theyself write about their work:
Quote:
Sea Shepherd's Mission Statement

Established in 1977, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS) is an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organization. Our mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world's oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.

Sea Shepherd uses innovative direct-action tactics to investigate, document, and take action when necessary to expose and confront illegal activities on the high seas. By safeguarding the biodiversity of our delicately balanced ocean ecosystems, Sea Shepherd works to ensure their survival for future generations.


Or follow this link to see some videos about Sea Shepherd:
http://www.seashepherd.org/videos.html



I think it is a most demanding battle to protect the giants of the sea against the interests of nations like Japan and Norway.

Please support Sea Shepherd in their great work!

Lebenshilfe is a strong advocate for the rights of people with disabilities.
Lebenshilfe Köln assists children with disabilities in schools, at their work or in their freetime. They organize journeys, camps and leisure time activities.
They have a service to assist parents of children with disabilities at home. Lebenshilfe Köln supports people with disabilities to live on their own.
They host workshops on disability related topics and give parents the possibility to get in contact to other parents with similar tasks to manage.
Lebenshilfe Köln even hosts a inclusive cafe:

A year having passed also means its time to renew the fostership for our child in Nkol-Avolo Cameroon. Last year we raised the 35€ necessary for a fostership. Hopefully we can do this again this year. Further down you can read a quote of my old text about Nkol-Avolo.

Thanks to you all once again for making this idea work!!!

Quote:
Missionskreis St. Gallus

I was raised christian but quit the catholic church a few years ago. Since that left me with spare cash i saved on not having to pay church taxes anymore, I decided to donate the saved money to charity.

Ironically one of the first organizations I choose was a catholic one. :-)
My former girlfriend (a Hare-Krishna-Devotee^^) introduced me to an organization of her hometown: Missionskreis St. Gallus.

By spending 35€ a year you foster the school education of a child in Nkol-Avolo Cameroon for a whole year. I for myself am now fostering a few childs. In Nkol-Avolo there is a mission station run by catholic nuns.
The good thing of this organization in my eyes is, that related to bigger organizations no money is lost in first world for administration.
Once a year I am getting personal letters and pictures from Nkol-Avolo and also once a year Missionskreis St Gallus writes a letter about what has happenend in Nkol-Avolo the past year.

Sadly, there is few information about this great project online. Hopefully this list will help to get it more attention.
Here is how you can donate directly to Missionskreis St. Gallus:

Pelican Rescue Team


I read about Pelican Rescue Team a few months ago in a a magazin called "Kochen ohne Knochen" (cooking without bones): https://kochenohneknochen.wordpress.com/

PRT is a organization preserving wildlife and I think the are doing a great job.
They were founded by Ignite and Pennywise frontman Zoltán Téglás and his brother.
Here is what the write about their work:

Quote:
Pelican Rescue Team (PRT) is the only organization in Southern California dedicated solely to the rescue of pelicans and other seabirds in distress.

Founding Brothers
Since they were kids, brothers Zoli Teglas and Dr. Michael Teglas (DVM) have joined forces to save animals and birds of all kinds. After years of volunteer work saving seabirds—mostly pelicans—the two loosely formed PRT and began to concentrate specifically on these majestic, and at that time officially endangered, ocean birds.

Zoli serves as board president, executive director, and primary rescuer. He also operates PRT’s 17.5-foot skiff Ellie the Pelly, named after “Ellie” the pelican, a special bird rescued by Zoli that remains very dear to him.

Our Purpose
The California brown pelican remained designated as endangered until just a few years ago. Since its delisting, we remain convinced that these majestic animals are backsliding-due to human-caused injuries, habitat degradation, and pollution.

Zoli driving boatOur rescues focus mostly on pelicans, but we also frequently rescue and transport cormorants, great blue herons, and other types of injured seabirds. The most common injuries to these birds in our region come from fishing lines…which are indiscriminant killers. Intentional (and criminal) injuries are also often perpetrated upon pelicans by cruel people who mistakenly blame these graceful natural predators for the massive reductions of fish populations in recent years.

Rescue Zone
PRT recognizes the serious need for more frequent seabird rescues in southern California’s coastal areas, especially where human activity is greatest. PRT’s coverage zone currently stretches from Los Angeles in the north to San Diego in the south. [See Map of Work Zone] We will expand as resources permit.

Many Lives Saved, More Need Our Help
PRT was informally founded in 1989 and officially registered as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) in 2010. For more than twenty-three years, we have conducted seabird rescues, and done so effectively, on a shoestring budget, and with a great deal of heart. We are continually ramping up our activities, and with your help we can soon be patrolling and rescuing much more often. Will you offer us your financial support today?






You can donate directly to PRT following this link:
http://www.pelicanrescueteam.org/support-us/giving-options.h...



I think Zoltán and his brother are doing wonderful work, well worth supporting. Please spread the word about them!

This month organization: Kiezhelden




I learned about Kiezhelden through FC St. Pauli - a football club I support: http://www.fcstpauli.com

Kiezhelden is affiliated to FC St. Pauli. Its merely a charity chapter of FC St Pauli.

There are several projects running on Kiezhelden. For example its possible:

- To support a library in Ghana
- Help to give young people from Ecuador the chance to do a social year in Germany
- Support Viva Con Agua
- Donate to St Pauli Supporter Projects
- Support a project against Nazis
- and a few more projects


With the money raised this month I would like to support the project "Laut gegen Nazis"(Loud against right-wing Nationalists).
The money will be used for schoolworkshops and awareness training.
-> http://www.kiezhelden.com/projekt/laut-gegen-naz

I consider supporting organizations working on those topics extremly important nowadays.

There are a lot of things happening in Germany these days, like in Freital, I am totally ashamed for.

I think its really important to work against this and in my eyes one of the best ways to to this is supporting projects like "Laut gegen Nazis".

I dearly hope you join in!






You can donate directly to Kiezhelden - Laut gegen Nazis following this link:
https://www.betterplace.org/de/projects/14030/client_donatio...[donation_client_reference]=project_id_14030_1438641322.602#paypal



On Kiezhelden you will find a lot of projects well worth supporting. Please spread the word about it and donate!

This month organization is again: Kiezhelden



But this time I want to support a different Project:
http://www.kiezhelden.com/projekt/refugees-welcome

Refuges Welcome - Karoviertel St. Pauli

This month I did not have a hard time to decide for what cause I want to collect money. I guess there is no further need to explain why help is needed now.

I decided to stay with another project of Kiezhelden this month because I read a lot of awesome stuff on their Facebook wall about what they do to welcome the refugees in Hamburg.

I hope you will agree with me and join in to raise some money for this project. It's time to stand together and help those in need.

While this item will raise money for Kiezhelden, there are a lot more small projects out there helping refugees.
If you are looking for some more places to donate to, here are a few links:
http://kreuzberg-hilft.com/
http://www.projectshelter.org/
http://www.berlin-hilft-lageso.de/
http://www.refugees-welcome.net/





Here is what I wrote last month about Kiezhelden:

Quote:
I learned about Kiezhelden through FC St. Pauli - a football club I support: http://www.fcstpauli.com

Kiezhelden is affiliated to FC St. Pauli. Its merely a charity chapter of FC St Pauli.

There are several projects running on Kiezhelden. For example its possible:

- To support a library in Ghana
- Help to give young people from Ecuador the chance to do a social year in Germany
- Support Viva Con Agua
- Donate to St Pauli Supporter Projects
- Support a project against Nazis
- and a few more projects









You can donate directly to Kiezhelden - Refuges WelcomeKaroviertel St Pauli following this link:

Teachers on the Road


A little bit late this month but I will still start this item with a personal story:

While I very soon knew that this month I again wanted to support a refugee-related project, I was unsure for a long time on what game to offer.

I was unsure - until last week. That was when I met a few friends of mine for a gaming evening. I took only one game with me: Gloom.
I hadn't played it for years but it was one of the games considered a keeper. I really like the idea of the game and it had a unique spot in my collection. Due to time issues I did not get it on the table this evening but my friends were keen to play it the next time.
Since Gloom is only a small card game I decided to carry it in my jacket pocket. And as you might already have figured the unevitable happened:
Cycling home on my bike the game dropped out of my pocket on the street. The box busted open and the cards spread on the dark street. For a second I thought about "rescuing" the game but very soon came to the conclusion not endagering myself was the way better choice.

I choose to drive home without it. The game was lost. What did I feel? Loss? Anger? No, Relief! Another one gone, which had not been played for ages.

On the next morning deciding what games to offer next was no problem anymore. I once again have a big list. Sometimes coincedences have to help.

So this month one game which I considered a keeper until last week:


Up for auction is a copy of Industrial Waste. Very Good Condition. German Edition but no necessary in-game-text.



(Not a picture of my copy but there is no difference in game materials.)

As every month all money raised by this auction will go to the organization itself.


I will cover the shipping costs to the winner of the auction out of my pocket. Every cent raised will go to the organization!

Special this month:
I might add some Promos I get my hands on at the Essen fair. No promises on what promos. Ideas welcome! Edit: Sadly I was not able to get my hands on any good free promos at the fair. To make up I will add some surprises to fill up the parcel to the next weight limit.

The auction ends on 31st of October 2015.

Starting Bid: 1€ (no reserve, please bid in full Euros)

The item comes with free worldwide shipping!

Join in. Bid high bid early for the good cause!

This months organization is again: Teachers on the road.



This month project put into spotlight:
https://nksnet.wordpress.com/teachers-on-the-road/

The project Teachers on the road emerged from an initiative which in 2013 visited about 50 places in Germany where refugees where housed.

When talking to the refugees the most outspoken wish the projecters heard was to be able to quickly learn german.

This is now one of the main approaches of Teachers on the Road: Provide structures to help refugees quickly learn german and help them to break out of isolation. Besides of that volunteers help refugees by translating, when visiting administrative bodies or when trying to find a flat.

Teachers on the road summarize their work this way:

Quote:
Wir verstehen uns als politisches Bildungsprojekt: Alle Menschen, die hier leben, sollen auch Teil dieser Gesellschaft sein können. Dafür setzen wir uns ein.


I hope you aggree with me on the importance of breaking the isolation of refugees and integrating them in our society.

Thanks Jon, for this great idea!

Special effect is an organisation which wants to help people with physical disabilities to enjoy video games.

About its work Special Effects writes:

Quote:
Our mission is to enable anyone, whatever their physical disability, to enjoy video games, leisure technology and communication. But we’re not just doing it for the sake of fun. By giving people the means to participate, we’re kick-starting rehabilitation, inclusion and confidence.


Here you will find more information about Special Effect:
http://www.specialeffect.org.uk/about-us

Being a special educations teacher and a firm beliver in the idea of inclusion I can absolutly relate to the work Special Effect does. Video Games have given me great times in my younger years and I think helping others to enjoy this too is totally awesome.
Sadly standard gaming equipment mostly is not very barrier-free. Creating and modifying gaming equipement to individual needs is in my eyes a wonderful idea.

I hope you agree with me and would like to encourage you to help Special Effects to go on with their work.

This months organization: Erdlingshof



Put into spotlight this month:
http://www.erdlingshof.de/

Thinking about what organisation to put into spotlight I came to the conclusion that this month I would like to put the focus on other earthlings rather than humans.
Christmas time is a time when a lot of charity organizations are very active and in my eyes the main focus is clearly put on helping the poor.
Great cause but also a opportunity for me to collect for something different.

As I have mentioned in earlier items I am living on a vegan diet. I am doing this for about nearly a decade now and I have been a vegetarian for half of my life. I came to this way to life due to ethical reasons.

Thats why I chose this month an organisation which is somehow connected with the way I live and how I believe non-human animals should be treated.

Erdlingshof is an animal sanctuary located in Germany. I think they are doing great work in giving former livestock a safe place for the rest of their life.

About its work Erdlingshof writes:

Quote:


Hauptschwerpunkt unserer Arbeit ist es, ein Umdenken bei den Menschen zu bewirken und zu einer tierfreundlichen Lebensweise zu ermutigen. Wir erzählen die Geschichten der auf dem Hof lebenden Wesen, welche in unserer Gesellschaft normalerweise als Produkte und Waren angesehen werden. Wir zeigen, dass sie alle individuell sind und ihre Eigenarten haben, indem wir über sie berichten, und machen das Leid, welches sie stellvertretend für viele erfahren mussten zur öffentlichen Debatte. Wir geben den geretteten Tieren ein sicheres, dauerhaftes Zuhause für ihr weiteres Leben.


Wir machen uns stark für den Schutz aller Erdlinge und ganz speziell für die Erdlinge, die auf dem Erdlingshof selbst leben, indem wir ihnen ein sicheres Zuhause ohne jegliche Nutzung bieten. Sie können hier um des Lebens willen leben und nicht der Nutzung wegen. Wir setzen uns für das Interesse zu leben eines jeden Erdlings ein, indem wir öffentlich mit Informationsständen, veganen Essensproben, Veranstaltungen und Flugblättern tätig sind.

Wichtig ist uns auch, durch Engagement mit friedlichen Demonstrationen und gewaltfreien direkten Aktionen die Aufmerksamkeit auf die Notlage der Tiere zu lenken.


Sadly no english information is available about Erdlingshof. But maybe you can try google translate on the quote and on their website.

Here you will find more information about Erdlingshof:
http://www.erdlingshof.de/unsere-arbeit/

Besides of the work with the inhabitants of Erdlingshof the organisation aims on doing educational work and tries to initiate societal discourse on how we should treat other earthlings.

I would like to encouarage you to donate to Erdlingshof to help them to go on with their work.

Please spread the word about Erdlingshof and donate!






For those interested a little more information on why in my eyes living vegan is the only option (spoilered because of the very explicit pictures):

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Literature:
- Animal Liberation by Peter Singer
- Jonathan Safran Foer Eating Animals
- Meat is for Pussies by John Joseph (Cro-Mags)
- The Vegan Zombie: Cook & Survive
- Justin P. Moore: The Lotus and the Artichoke

Where to eat:
- www.happycow.com

For a quick start. Moving pictures:

- A great documentation on how food is produced in general: http://we-feed-the-world.at/en/trailer.htm
- http://www.nationearth.com/earthlings-1/
- An older PETA documentation with very explicit pictures:



Probably I will add later on. But most of all I would like to let the item go live now. :-)

.

Since I really want to downsize my collection I decided I don't want it shipped to me but also auctioned of. Aron agreed to this idea. A big thanks to him for making this extra item possible!!!

So as a second item this month up for auction is: Rise and Decline of the Third Reich

The game is unpunched but has some wear on the box itself.




(This guy is neither Aron nor me. Just a great picture of the game.)




After the auction has ended and the winner has paid, I will drop Aron a geekmail to send the game to the lucky winner.

The money raised by this item will also go to Erdlingshof.


As every month all money raised by this auction will go to the organization itself.


Aron will cover the domestic shipping costs (USA) or half of the international shipping costs. Every cent raised by the auction will go to the organization!

The auction ends on 31st of December 2015.

Starting Bid: 1€ (no reserve, please bid in full Euros)

The item comes with free US shipping or half of the international shipping costs covered!


Shipping costs example: Aron told me the winners share to Germany would be 15,10$. Please inquire for your country.

Join in. Bid high bid early for the good cause!

They explained everything in detail and at great length. After they finished I sat, despondent, contemplating a bleak and empty future. "I’m glad you’re depressed" said one. "It means you’ve understood the situation.”
