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

I am actually raising at G4GG to do so: Item for Geeklist "Games for Geekgold (G4GG) - June 2016"

This month organization:




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:

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

This month organization:


Plastic Pollution Coalition


I stumbled over the organization on the homepage of a musician I really like: Ben Harper -> http://www.benharper.com/

Plastic Pollution Coalition adresses one of the biggest enviromental problems we are actually facing.

Here is a quote from Ben Harpers site on what PPC is doing:

Quote:
The mission of Plastic Pollution Coalition is to stop plastic pollution and its toxic impacts on humans, the environment, and wildlife worldwide.

Plastic Pollution Coalition provides a platform for strategic planning and coherent communications; increases awareness and understanding of the problem and sustainable solutions; and empowers action to eliminate the negative impacts of plastics on the environment, wildlife, marine life, and human health.

Find out more on their homepage:
http://www.plasticpollutioncoalition.org/

I think this is a great cause and its really important to help get change on the way. In Germany luckily lately complimentary plastic bags have been banned from stores. A small step. Donating to PPC or engaging in the organization could help to take some more of those small steps. Lets help them!

Steam Time for Sommerwerft - Protagon Theater Aktion


This month up for auction is a copy of Steam Time.

It is in very good condition. Its a german edition by Kosmos.
It has no necessary in-game-text within the base-game and some easily memorized text on the cards when playing with the Specialist-Module.





We already had some praise for Rüdiger Dorn at the third auction of this list:
Quote:
Diamonds Club is a 2008 game Rüdiger Dorn, who recently won German Kennerspiel des Jahres 2014 for his game Istanbul.

He is also well known for games like Goa and Louis XIV, which as well as Istanbul and Diamonds Club feature very typical "dornish" movement mechanisms.

This ones somehow different since it is missing the typical movement mechanisms. Its a worker placement game with a modular board. The way you have to place the workers somehow reminds me of Egizia. In my eyes the game heavily focusses on optimization of ressources.


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!

The auction ends on 31st of August 2016.

This month organization:


Sommerwerft - Protagon Theater Aktion


This months organization is somehow a bit different. In the past I mostly tended to wellfare organization or others taking care of enviromental issues.

This month I want to put in spotlight an organization that does great cultural work.

Sommerwerft is a Theater Festival in Frankfurt am Main located next to the River Main. Its in its 14th year now and its still free of entrance.

This is mainly possible because of a lot of volunteers, who help make this possible.

Sommerwerft Festival has an aweseome atmosphere and my daughter and me really enjoy visiting the festival.

In my eyes it is very important to support small festivals like this one because I deeply feel chances for off mainstream art to be perfomed are getting scarcer and scarcer. A lot of free-entrance-festivals, I used to visit in my youth, are now history. Lets make this one stay!

Here are a few word they write about themself:

Quote:
Sommerwerft has reached it's 10th year, with a two and a half week programme of unusually interesting theatre and culture by the Main river. We declare this international theatre festival a public space without restrictions, a cultural free space in Frankfurt without fences or entrance fees. We invite you to come by and experience, dive in, see, feel and enjoy . . ..

On the grounds of the Weseler Werft (next to the Flößer Bridge on the shore of the Main River in Frankfurt), the visiter can expect a cultural festival program from international artists. Our CultureRoom on the shore, complete with a Biergarten, is open daily (rain or shine),

THE meeting place for everyone who wants to escape the summer blues in the urban consume-tempel, for people who are looking for something special, something quite different indeed.

Find out more on their homepage:
http://www.sommerwerft.de/en/



Here are two videos to give you an impression of what is happening there:

The had a small info booth there and the very friendly staff told me about the work of Kenia Kinder Hilfe e.V..

Event though they are a very small organization (only 80 members yet) they already brought some great things on the way. They run orphan houses for 32 childen, a Kindergarten and two schools (for tailors and carpenters).

On the farmland in Langobaya, Kenia the children are also made familiar with the work in agriculture and farming.

Karsten, thank you for your recommendation!

The Neven Subotic Stiftung adresses similar things like a few other organizations we had before. Their focus is on giving children in poor regions of our world a future.

On their website you can take a look on all the projects the have already done:
http://nevensuboticstiftung.de/projekte
The website is in german but the projects have photo galleries with a lot of pictures which illustrate quite well the good work Neven Subotic Stiftung.

The main focus of the projects is on access to clean water and education for children.



Neven Subotic is a well known professional soccer player, who plays for Borrusia Dortmund. He is paying for all adminstrative costs of Neven Subotic Stiftung. Thats why every cent donated will go directly to their projects. I think thats quite awesome since a lot of money donated to big charity organisations is lost on adminstrative costs.

This month organization:


Unknowns Forum


https://www.unknowns.de/wbb4/

November was kind of a hard month for my family, friends and me.
Our favourite café Edelkiosk had to close. Over the past five years it became our second living room and a place where we could go spontaniously and would always meet friends.
When we passed the empy store room yesterday my 5yo daughter began to weep bitterly. I did not expect what importance this place had for her.
With nearly 4 decades of my life passed I have seen a lot of places go down that meant a quite thing for me (e.g. our local boardgaming cafe, favourite pubs, our family business and the demolition of our family home that was build by my great grandfather).

I have well learned that all things must pass and new things will fill up the void left behind. Still it hurts to let go on places or things you loved.

Long story a little bit shorter. :-)

This month I would like to raise money that is not a charity project. Its rather a "place" I love within the hobby we all love.
Unknowns is a german boardgaming forum I visit on a daily basis and which I would really miss. Its run by a single person and there are costs to run the website, which have to be covered. I had a few other real charity organizations in mind for this month but today I rather felt like I want to support our hobby this month. Help things to not pass too early. :-)

Why unkowns?
I love unknowns because its a crazy geeky place where the german hardcore boardgame geeks meet.

There are weekly threads where boardgaming experiences are shared. You will find reviews and a lot of information you won't find on regular boardgaming websites.

But there are also a lot of crazy, geeky discussions like "will the Pegasus frame on boxes ruin Whats Your Games-games for me?".

Discussions tend to be heavy and long but I like that "nettiquette" is something that nearly every user obeys.

I guess I am contributing way more content to BGG but when it comes to reading about our hobby I spend more time on unknows.

I love this website. heart So lets give something back!

There is also a microbadge for unknowns:

This month organization:


Down-Syndrom-Koeln e.V.


http://www.down-syndrom-koeln.webdesign-nrw.de/startseite.ht...

Put into focus this month is Down-Syndrom-Koeln e.V..
I learned about this organization nearly two decades ago when I worked at an integrative primary school. I was doing my alternative service at this school and one thing I had to to was to help Sami, a boy with Down Syndrom.
A great experience which changed my way in life and made me become a special educations teacher in inclusive education.
Sami was the adopted son of the former chairwoman of the organization. Before they adopted him the chairwoman had already herself given birth to a girl with down syndrom.
After my alternative service ended I stayed in contact with the family for several years and assisted Sami.
The way the family handled life with three children, two of them with handicaps, deeply impressed me. It was an life-changing experience.

The main task of Down-Syndrom-Koeln e.V. is to consult parents of Children mit Down Syndrom. They collect and distribute information and try to arrange possibilities for the exchange of experiences.
The run a Bowling Groop for teenagers with Down Syndrom and weekly club where teenagers and adults with Down Syndrom can meet.
Also they have a yearly holiday project for families of children with Down Syndrom.

Over here are some picture galleries so you can get an impression of their work:
http://ds-koeln-galerie.de/



I think they are doing a great work and would like to encourage you to donate to them.

This month organization:


Save our Seeds


http://www.saveourseeds.org/en/wwwsaveourseedsorg/home.html

Put into focus this month is Save our Seeds.
I learned about this organization on www.utopia.de, a website which provides information about small changes you can make in your life to make this world a little better.

I deeply believe in bio-diversity and strictly refuse GM Technology.
Thats why I can really relate to the work Save our seeds does.

Their main objectives are:
Quote:

- Prevent the contamination of conventional and organic seed with genetically modified organisms.
- The preservation of GMO-free agriculture and food production.
- The promotion and development of the varieties of pollinating (not hybrid) crops and its free exchange through the community development of ‘ecologically adapted seed’.
- Increase public awareness of the scale of the task facing the future of agriculture.
- Support a move away from existing food production practices to a more environmentally sustainable and socially just approach.
- Reform of the EU agricultural policy towards a more organic, fair and local agriculture.
- Promote the development of organic farming as a model for the future of agriculture.

They have a website in english, where you can learn more about their work:

This month organization:


Reporter ohne Grenzen / Reporters sans frontières


https://www.reporter-ohne-grenzen.de/ or https://rsf.org/

Put into focus this month is Reporter ohne Grenzen / Reporters sans frontières.
In times of "Fake news", german mobs chanting "Lügenpresse", friends of mine deeply believing in conspirancy based websites rather than real newspapers and the turkish government imprisoning "unwelcome" journalists, I felt the deep need this month to use this months item as my small pro journalism statement.
Thats why I have chosen Reporter ohne Grenzen / Reporters sans frontières to benefit from this months item.

Reporter ohne Grenzen fights for press freedom and against censorship.
They are advocates for journalists who have become imprisoned or are in danger. They try to put those cases into the public view.
Reporter ohne Grenzen also helps journalists to continue their work when their equipment has been destroyed or confiscated. They cover adcocate costs or bails to free journalists.

Beside of the german and french website there is an english one too where their work is presentated:

Put into focus this month is Frankfurter Garten.

Frankfurter Garten is an urban gardenening project in my neighborhood. The started a few years ago and had a bad year in 2016. Now they are struggling financially and are in deep need for help.
In my eyes its a great project. The project takes place on what has been one of the ugliest places in Frankfurt. It has been grey mass for years and the Frankfurter Garten group has planted a small paradise on it.

There are a lot of great events on the spot throughout the year.
My personal highlight has been the alternative Weihnachtsmarkt. I loved to visit it.
Frankfurter Garten has become an urban oasis in Frankfurt Ostend and a place where the neighborhood meets.

They are also cooperating with schools, having workshops and are doing educational work.

Here is small video on Frankfurter Garten.

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:

Land der Tiere




This year me and my daughter once again spent our holiday at the german Ostsee. This year we also visited a festival called Vegan Summer Eckernförde

At this festival were a lot of info booths on vegan initives, a lot of food to buy and taste, cooking shows, speaches were held and bands were playing.

We had a fun time and visited the booth of Land der Tiere and learned about the initiative.

Like Hof Butenland and Erlingshof it is also a shelter for saved or rescued animals. Trough my earlier offers you might have learned that I like the idea and thats why I am also presenting you this initiative.
Land der Tiere is located in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, in the north-eastern part of Germany. A quite rural area.
Unlike the previously presented initiatives Land der Tiere is a bit more open for visitors since the are aiming to do educational work on animal projection and offering projects and lessons for schools or school classes.
Land der Tiere is 133000 qm large and offers a lot of space for the animals to nearly more freely:
http://land-der-tiere.de/schweineland/




Plese take a look at their website. It is once again but there are a lot of pictures showing the animals, the place and the work:

Bike Bridge Freiburg




I learned about this organisation in german Newspaper TAZ.

Bike Bridge is a small organisation run by volunteers located in german town Freiburg (Black Forest/Schwarzwald region).
Bike bridge aims to give women with refugee experience practial and theoretical lessons in bycicle driving.
They learn how to drive and the rules you have to follow when driving a bike. Also they learn how to maintain a bycicle.

I believe this project to be awesome because it helps to get these women in contact plus it enhances their opportunities to participate in society. It also simply increases their radius of movement.

Plese take a look at their website. It is once again in german only but there are a lot of impressive pictures showing their work:

This month organization:




Mokita Kinderladen - Veggie Kids e.V.




This month I want to present you an organisation I am personally involved in. Veggie-Kids e.V. is a parents initiative I co-founded.
It is a registered association and has been approved charitable by the german tax authority.

We (a group of parents) started Veggie Kids e.V. a few years ago shorly after our children were born (my daugher was born in 2011).
We were all living on a plant-based diet and were facing the situation that there would be no adequate daynurseries or kindergarten for our children where they would be catered vegan or vegetarian without having to hassle about it.

With that in mind we formed and wrote a concept for an intercultural Kindergarten based on a Reggio-concept and catering freshly cooked vegan food.
Our concept was quickly approved by the local authorities (which also meant we would be financed) and we were given the permission to search for rooms.

Finding a place big enough to open a Kindergarten (with a big exterial outface) for 40 children in inner-city Frankfurt proved to be a hard task and literally took us years. But in the end we had the luck to find a place and last year we signed a contract.
At the moment a house is build where the basement floor and half of the first floor is rented to us.

Next year in spring our Kindergarten will finally open! Even though most of our own children have grown too old for Kindergarten in the years we invested in this project, we are totally happy about making this place happen.
Our children and us have struggled a lot due to shitty catering policies of global companies like So**xo and Ap***to during their kindergarten years and we are happy to give others an easier life with our offer.

When Mokita Kinderlanden is finally running it is financed by the parents dues and the contribution of the city.

At the moment we are still covering the costs of the associtation by donations and membership fees.
To pay for room rents for information events, to print flyers or build up a new homepage we are in need of contributions.

Thats why I am present you this project and ask for your help. At the moment we could make good use of some extra money to get a good website. That is also the reason why I am offering more than one game this month.

There have been two articles about the project in press:
- ProVeg http://aktion-pflanzenpower.de/interview-lucien-coy/
- Kochen ohne Knochen https://kochenohneknochen.wordpress.com/2017/02/15/kok-26-is...

Veggie-Kids e.V. has a wesite but it is still very rudimentary.

But we have a facebook site, where there is a bit more information: https://www.facebook.com/MokitaKinderladen/

Here is how you can donate directly to Mokita Kinderladen:

This month organization:



Babantaa e.V.




This month I present you an organisation which I learned about in german Newspaper http://taz.de/.
To promote Babantaa e.V. the used the term Ask your local dealer!
This refers to the drug dealing problem in Görlitzer Park/Berlin the organization is trying to ease.
I don't know If you have ever been to Görlitzer Park but if you have been there, you know there have to be much more efforts to give young migrants perspectives.

Babantaa e.V. is trying to cope with this situation.
Here is what they write on themself:

Quote:

Who we are

Bantabaa is Mandinka, a West African language and means meeting place. The Bantabaa Community Project began in 2015 as a meeting point for refugees around Görlitzer Park in Berlin Kreuzberg and is today an integration project focusing on education and jobs in the catering sector.

We are working for the holistic support and integration of refugees, meet them, listen to their stories and help them to take their future into their own hands.

It all started with the Görlitzer Park

For many years many refugees have been selling drugs in the Görlitzer Park, mainly from West Africa. The number has risen considerably in recent years. But not only are drug dealers are in the park. The Görli, as the locals call it lovingly, has become the meeting place for the many refugees from West Africa. The many different user interests led to considerable conflicts. In addition to the drug trafficking, the many tourists, crime, garbage, parties and noise also caused increasing displeasure in the neighborhood. The Berlin Senate tried in vain to curb the drug trafficking of police. The district brought up coffee shops after the Dutch model.

Although the refugees are at the center of the discussions around the Görlitzer Park, the problem has been discussed almost exclusively from the perspective of drug trafficking. The personal and social situation of the young West Africans, on the other hand, was largely ignored by the media, politics and many local residents. It is above all the case that the fugitives are denied access to the German labor market and therefore do not see alternatives to drug trafficking. As a result of the European asylum rules, many of the refugees ("Lampedusa refugees") who have come to Italy through Europe have long-term residency and labor rights
