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: Microbadge: Winner of DixiJo's monthly charity auction
You can show your support spotting this MB: Microbadge: DixiJo's monthly charity auction supporter

This geeklist is now part of MetaList for GeekList AUCTIONS

Inklusion muss Laut sein



When I first heard about Inklusion muss laut sein (Inclusion must be loud) I was immediently loving it. Thats no big wonder: I love going to concerts plus I am a special educations teacher working in and on inclusive educational settings and strongly believing in Inclusion.

IMLS acts as an advocate for those of us who cannot that easily access concerts or other cultural activities.
They try to improve chances to participate and make freedom from barriers possible.

There are a lot of volunteers working as assistents to help making concerts visits possible for those who otherwise could not.

Here is a video on their work:


I totally love what this intiative is doing and I hope you are with me, when you view the video.

Here is how you can donate to Inklusion muss Laut sein

I really like the musik of Common. Lately he has done an awesome concert on National Public Radio:
https://www.npr.org/event/music/586034364/august-greene-tiny...
There is this wonderful series Tiny desk hosted by DC Legend Bob Boilen. If you like music, you should definetly check out Tiny desk. Via this show I have learned to love some great bands, who performed behind Bob Boilens desk.

Enjoying this concert of Common made me visit Commons homepage and there I learned about Common Ground foundation founded by Common.
Common ground foundation puts it's focus on helping inner city youth of Chicago.
They have a youth mentoring program, a transition to college progamm, a summer camp and a youth business and leadership conference.

Here is what Common himself says abouth the project:

Quote:
“I started the Common Ground Foundation because I wanted to help. Most of all help people to help themselves. I always believed that if we started with the youth then we would be planting the seeds for our future to blossom. Give the children a sense of hope, self-esteem, and love that will better the world…I think making a difference in the lives of others is life’s greatest purpose. I walk this path with faith knowing that the Common Ground Foundation will Change the World.”- Love, COMMON
Common Ground Foundation works with over 300 students from more than 30 schools in Chicago’s south and west side neighborhoods.

They come from low-socioeconomic areas in Chicago, primarily the South and West sides of the city.
They have the potential to achieve in and graduate high school.
Thy need an extra layer of support outside of their family and school.
Many come from single parent families.

There is a video on Youtube where Common explains what its all about:


You can learn more about the project on their website:

And I would love you to make a donation to Common Ground Foundation:

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:

Bio-Vegane Landwirtschaft Solidarische Rhein-Main

This month I am presenting you another project I am personally involved in:
Bio-Vegane Solidarische Landwirtschaft Rhein-Main.

I am one of the founding members of this initiative altough I am not one of the very active members - the Kindergarten project is keeping me way too busy.

The goal of this project is to produce fruits and vegetables while sticking to some principles. Agriculture within this project should be:

- organic
- vegan (for example no fertilizer made out of ingredients from animals is used)
- solidary

We aim to find land and employ growers on a fair basis.
In english the approach is called Community supported agriculture.
For more information in english:
https://communitysupportedagriculture.org.uk/what-is-csa/

This video gives a brief overview on CSA:



Finding land that fulfills our requirements in an metropolitan area like Rhein-Main-Gebiet proved to be quite difficult.
Last year we had found land and were about to start but it sadly did not work out with the land owner.
To have some place to work together and get started - while searching for land - we rented two bigger gardens within the Frankfurt city limits.

We are at the moment about 25 members and we are using this spot to try out gardening and agricultural techniques (vegan fertilizing, organic, permacultural).

Here are some pictures:
External image

From gallery of dixijo

For the future we try to find land or a organic farmer we can cooperate with. Besides of that we try to establish a structure to distribute the grown food among our members.
We are part of Netzwerk Solidarische Landwirtschaft.

TAZ Gazete


External image


This month I am a bit short of time. We will hopefully next monday open the Kindergarten I presented you some time ago.
I am very excited but things are awefully stressfull at the moment. There is so much to do.

Thats why me presentation text is a bit short today.
This month I am presenting you taz.gazete.
TAZ Gazete is a project by german newspaper TAZ and was started in 2017.
It is a project both in turkish and in german. Their concern is to increase the diversity of opinion on Turkey-related topics
strengthen the dialogue with journalists in Turkey.

TAZ Gazete is financed by TAZ Pantherstiftung. I learned about it because I am a subscribe of TAZ. This year I also read the great book Wir sind ja nicht zum Spaß hier (We are not here for fun) by journalist Denis Yücel.
He was imprisoned for about a year in Turkey for in my eyes no reason legitimate in a Democracy. The book presents texts of Yücel but also his experiences in prison. It's a great book but it's totally frightening that things like this are happening in a country that is so close to the EU.

You have probably also read about the problems newspapers in Turkey have in the moment.
Thats why I think it's totally important to strenghten the voices left and give people in Turkey the chance to hear them.
I would be glad if you join in with bidding or maybe a direct donation to TAZ Panterstiftung:

Put into focus this month is shoutoutloud.
They are located in Frankfurt, the town where I live.
Their credo is changing the world step by step.
The project focusses on stopping food waste but acts in other fields to like integration and campaining against plastic trash.
They have an image video that shows polical activism can be fun too:

Shoutoutloud are doing great work and are very active in Frankfurt.
They have a food truck where the cook food that was meant to be trashed and they even brewed and sold a zero-waste-beer that was made out of old bread in cooperation with a brewery.

I think it's a great example and inspiration how DIY can end in awesome thing. Lets quote a HC-Classic: Start Today!

Ende Gelände

External image


Put into focus this month is Ende Gelände.
As I have metioned before I am from Cologne. Near my hometown there is actually a big dispute on a place called Hambacher Forst (Hambacher Forest). Energy company RWE wants to remove the forest to mine for coal at this place. The area around Hambacher Forst is a big coalmining-area.
The forest has been occupied by activists for some years now but now the eviction of the forest has begung and tree houses are removed.

The whole thing is very big in german press actually and there are big demonstration against the cutting down of the forest. Sadly it seems like RWE and politics won't give by.

Ende Gelände is one of the biggest organisations organizing the protest and rallying the masses.

Here is how the discribe themselves:
Quote:
We are a broad alliance of people from the anti-nuclear and anti-coal movements, the Rhineland and Lausitz climate camps and the Hambacher Forest anti-coal campaign. We are from grassroots climate action groups, large environmental organisations, left political groups and many other campaigns, groups and networks.

We all share the belief that to stop climate change we need to take action ourselves, using civil disobedience as a powerful signal for real action to put our climate before profit.

They have a flicker account where you can get a quite good idea of their work:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/133937251@N05/albums
But there are also a lot of videos:
https://www.ende-gelaende.org/de/foto-und-video/


I think it is very important to force politics and energy companies to a quick shift to regenrative energies and I hope I can encourage you to donate to Ende Gelände.

This month organization:


SoKo Tierschutz

Put into focus this month is SoKo Tierschutz.
I learned about SoKo Tierschutz via my daily newspaper TAZ. Once away there is the TAZ Panther Prize, which goes go to charitable organizations.

SoKo Tierschutz was one of their this years nominees. SoKo Tierschutz investigates to document and televise violations against animal rights.
You can get quite a good impression of theier work if you take a look at their picture gallery:
https://www.soko-tierschutz.org/bildergalerie

Besides of investigation they also put a focus and sharing information (e.g. to media or lectures in school classes). They are runing campaigns. Very succesful campaigns they ran against mink oil and a big laying battery.

Sadly their website is german only but they have a youtube channel where you can see the crimes they document:
https://www.youtube.com/user/SOKOTIERSCHUTZ

Here is one of their videos. Beware! You will see very hard pictures if you start it. Please consider if you really want to see it.


In my eyes it is very important to have NGOs that investigate in the direction SoKo Tierschutz does. Otherwise there will never be a change in the way non-human animals are treated when used as livestock. I believe Soko Tierschutz does great work and hope you will help me to raise some money for their work.

Literaturhaus Frankfurt
External image


Put into focus this month is Literaturhaus Frankfurt.
Reading is my other hobby besides boardgaming. I love books and when I find spare time (sadly to few in the last months), I enjoy reading for hours and hours.
Luckily likewise to boardgaming I was able to "infect" my daughter with the reading virus too.
Since she is in second grade she is still a beginner but she loves books and when I read to her.

Literaturhaus Frankfurt has become a place we regularily visit since well-known authors are holding readings there.

Here is how Literaturhaus Frankfurt describes itself:
Quote:
IN THE MIDDLE OF GERMANY
IN THE MIDDLE OF FRANKFURT ON THE MAIN

A HOUSE OF MANY ROOMS FOR LITERATURE

Anyone who loves books knows that everything about them is interesting: The physical process of making them, communicating and distributing them, their price, the circles of people gathering around them, their reception, the ups and downs of their standing, their replacement and elimination, but also the mystery of their survival. This is how the author Elias Canetti put it. And thus Canetti validly expressed what this place is still about. Literaturhaus Frankfurt loves good books. Here, in the reconstructed Old City Library, everything revolves around introducing authors, books and ideas to the audience, in the best atmosphere possible and in an entertaining and inspiring way. Books by well-known and lesser-known great authors. For that reason, our program as well as our house offer various forms, formats, series, focal points and interest groups. There are readings, discussions, conferences, parties and performances. And the "Junges Literaturhaus" offers an extensive program for children and young people. The "KOLLEG SCHÖNE AUSSICHT – Das Literaturhaus für Lehrer" is the only institution of its kind throughout Germany for teachers of all school types, classes and subjects.

Among the guests of Literaturhaus there are numerous authors from German-speaking countries as well as from all other parts of the world. This includes renowned personalities such as Umberto Eco, Les Murray, Jonathan Franzen, Martin Walser, Imre Kertész, Adam Zagajewski, Elfriede Jelinek, Alexander Kluge, Mario Vargas Llosa, Margriet de Moor, Cees Nooteboom, Tom Tykwer, Franz Josef Czernin, Bodo Kirchhoff or Herta Müller. If you are reading in silence, you are following an author. If you visit the Literaturhaus, you will also meet him
Read more about this place over here:
https://literaturhaus-frankfurt.de/for-our-english-speaking-...

External image


As a teacher I believe it to be very important to promote book culture and I take my school class to readings whenever possible.
I use the subway to work everyday and it really troubles me to see no other passenger reading a book or newspaper anymore.

I believe places like Literaturhaus Frankfurt to be very important for our society and would be very glad if I can encourage you to support this great place.

Animal Equality
External image


Put into focus this month is Animal Equality.
Before I was living vegan I read the work of philosopher Peter Singer in University. Animal Liberation deeply impressed me and for sure changed me too.
I have read a few of his books and check his homepage from time to time.
There I learned about: animalcharityevaluators.org
The site checks charity organizations and values their work.
One of their top recommendations is Animal Equality.
Animal Charity Evaluaters writes about them:
Quote:
Animal Equality advocates for animals in the U.S., Europe, Latin America, and India. They conduct undercover investigations and promote them online and through media outlets, occasionally pressing charges against animal abusers discovered through the investigations. Animal Equality also conducts grassroots outreach, including leafleting, organizing protests, and social media outreach. In 2016, they developed a new outreach program intended to convey the experiences of farmed animals using virtual reality technology. In 2017, Animal Equality launched a corporate outreach department and works with corporations to adopt better animal welfare policies and ban particularly cruel industry practices. They also conduct legal outreach in Mexico, India, and the European Union, and they support legislation initiatives in the U.S.



The quickest way to learn about the work of Animal Equality is his video:


Read more about them over here:
hhttps://animalequality.org/what-we-do/

Since you all know my past auction items, you already know that I believe the fight for animal rights very important. Animal Equality for sure does some great work in this sector. I would be glad if you would help them by donating. At the moment donations will be doubled by a machting challenge!!!

Bag mohajer is a solidarity network for refugees which tries to help refugees to cope with coming to a new land and dealing with the things they encounteres when fleeing from thier home country.

What Bag mohajer does is making bags out of the inflatable dinghys the refugees used. The bags are made by refugees and sold online and on fairs:

Kulturisten-hoch2
External image


We are all getting older and one of our biggest fears is most probably to not be able to participate in social and cultural activities anymore.
The organization Kulturisten-hoch2, located in Hamburg, Germany decided to aim on this big problem for older persons.

KH2 focuses on making it possible for older persons, living on a small budget to attend cultural activities. Pupils and seniors from Hamburg are brought together in this project, which tries to make a dialogue between generations possible.

To enhance the outcome of the encounters the adolescents attend a workshops and a training before starting their work.

The cultural activities like readings or concerts are free of charge for the seniors. Transport costs for tram or bus are also paid by the organization.

I think this is great. Families are getting smaller. Lifespan ist extending. Retirement benefits of a lot of seniors won't be very high.
Helping those people to take part is in my eyes an awesome idea.

If I have caught your attention, there is a video on their work:


Find out more on them on thier website:

There is also the chance to donate directly:

Transition Town Frankfurt am Main
External image


Today I am keeping it a bit shorter since I got ill yesterday and I feel quite shitty. I will add more information throughout the next days.
Put into focus this month is Transition Town Frankfurt am Main e.V..
The organization is part of the Transition Town-Movement: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transition_town
Quote form wikipedia:
Quote:
The terms transition town, transition initiative and transition model refer to grassroot community projects that aim to increase self-sufficiency to reduce the potential effects of peak oil, climate destruction, and economic instability. The "Transition Network", founded in 2006, inspired the creation of many of the projects. A number of the groups are officially registered with the Transition Network. The first initiative to use the name was Transition Town Totnes, located in the United Kingdom. Transition initiatives have been started in locations around the world, with many located in the United Kingdom, Europe, North America and Australia.

Transition Town Frankfurt am Main does a lot of great work for a sustainable development of the City Frankfurt am Main.
I will add a bit more information about their work when I feel better.
TTF shares information about initiatives but also itself organizes activities like swapping bazars, cooking with saved food, a repair cafe, movie screenings, alternative tours to frankfurt to show places of sustainable development, workshops for DIY-Empowerment (e.g. to self-produce soap) and much more.

Find out more on them on their website:
https://www.transition-town-frankfurt.de/index.html

Here is the link if you want to donate directly to Transition Town:

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:

This month organization:


Peng Collective



You might already have stumbled over the campaigns run by Peng Collective.
It is a collective of artists, artisans, scientists and activists.
Their goal is to motivate the civil society to take more action in campaigns and society. This is done by running subversive action art campaigns.

Here are some of there most known:
- https://pen.gg/campaign/mask-id-2/
Quote:
In the first part of our play Mask.ID, we hacked the Bundesdruckerei and had a passport printed, in which two people can be identified: the EU Commissioner for foreign affairs and security policy, Federica Mogherini, and a penguin from our team. Now Frederica Mogherini and one of our team members can theoretically travel the world with the same passport.
- Tortaler Krieg: https://pen.gg/campaign/tortaler-krieg/

Quote:
We declare a Pie War on the AfD

No activist wants to throw a pie at a politician. We didn't want to either. But a cream pie is a last resort. And right now the use of pies is the moral order of the day. The pie throw is the last measure at the border of humanity and an urgent expression of direct democracy.
- Fluchthelferin: https://pen.gg/campaign/fluchthelferin/

Quote:
We launched a campaign that advocates helping refugees to cross the European border.
- Slam Shell: https://pen.gg/campaign/slamshell/


Quote:
We smuggled a fake scientist into a Shell greenwashing event and ended the evening in a disastrous oil spill.
Here is how you can donate directly to Peng e.V.:

In my eyes Peng does great work. Their clever campaigns reach a lot of the people and help to activate folks to enagage in society.

I hope you have a fun time viewing videos of their actions and reading about them.

It would be great if my little spotlight on them makes you donate to them.

Einheitsbuddeln

External image



The organization of the month is Einheitsbuddeln.
Every year on 3rd of October Tag der Deutschen Einheit (Day of German Union) is celebrated. It's a national holiday and most people don't have to work on this day.
While being a national holiday it is not really celebrated. For most germans it's just a welcome free day.

Thats why Einheitsbuddeln is trying to give the day a new meaning.
They want to make 3rd of October the day where every german (or hopefully a lot of) plants a tree. They want the the tree planting to become a national tradion on 3rd of October.

I really like this idea. It' a very easy way to do something against climate change.


https://youtu.be/-tpTQgeN8rs

To take part there are several options:
- Plant a tree on your own ground
- Take part on a plant party
- Organize a plant party
- Donate money
- Share Information on Einheitsbuddeln


The project is run by german Bundesland Schleswig-Holstein.

You can find information on:
https://einheitsbuddeln.de/home

A donation is possible on betterplace.org:
https://www.betterplace.org/de/projects/71369-einheitsbuddel...

The organization is running a campaign on better place to plant at least 40000 trees. For each tree 5€ are necessary to plant and care for it.

How many trees will we be able to plant after this month? Hopefully a little wood. I would be glad if you join in!

Closed. Sold to for 20€.

Abenteuerspielplatz Günthersburg

The organization of the month is Abenteuerspielplatz Ghüntersburg.
The Abenteuerspielplatz organisation is quite an institution here in Frankfurt.
They are running several adventure playgrounds, they have a few cars with toys that travel through the town and make halt on playgrounds or places. Besides that they organize fleamarkets and several festivals for children.

The adventure playground closest to me (Abenteuerspielplatz Günthersburg) has been struggling lately since there where plan to tear it down to build a new residential destrict.

There were a lot of protests and in the end the Güntersburg was allowed to stay.

What now happenend was incidiarism on Abentuerspielplatz Güntersburg.

External image


Two containers were burned down and the stable-hares that lived on Abenteuerspielplatz were burned alive.

Very sad thing and quite a coincidence...

What Abenteuerspielplatz now needs is a little help to build the location up again and I hope you join, by bidding on this item and donating.

This month organization:


Exit-Deutschland

External image



The organization of the month is Exit-Deutschland.

As you may have noticed Germany is actually struggling with rightwing (extremist) nationalists. Last weekend AFD has won more than 20% in german federal state Thüringen and a few weeks ago there was a nationalist terrorist attack on a yewish synagoge in Halle.

In my eyes one of the most important aspects on fighting rightwing extremism is to get in contact with the individuals and help them to get out of the scene.

During my school time me and my friends helped to get a close friend out of Deutsche Liga and NPD. It was not easy but totally worth the effort. Definetly the best thing I did in my teenager days.

Exit-Deutschland aims in the same direction. It helps individuals to quit the scene.
They run campaigns and offer advice to the one willing to quit and their realtives. Besides that the help to improve the integration and security of the persons quitting.

I think what Exit-Deutschland does is very important since (as i leraned in my teenager days) it is really hard to quit such a scene. It implies the loss of contacts or even friends and much fear is involved.

There is a video that shows what they are doing:


I hope I was able to give you an idea of why this cause is importand and maybe you want to support their work.
