Are you curious about us? Then we’d be happy to tell you more about us:
We are a big family, it doesn’t matter whether you are old or young, have a handicap or other restrictions – with us you will be accepted for who you are. This is just as important as treating each other with respect.
And let’s be honest: Going to football alone can be pretty boring, right? Then who should we share our joy or sorrow with? Shared joy is doubled joy and shared sorrow is halved sorrow, can be seen again and again in our organisation.
But visiting the stadium together is not all that makes us special, there is much more: For example, trips to the BVB training camps are organized in summer and winter. We organize soccer tournaments with other fan groups, in which fun is also in the foreground, and we are in contact in our Freaky Whatsapp group to exchange ideas in a relaxed atmosphere or to find an open ear if you have any concerns.
Social engagement is at least as important to us. Together with other associations, organizations and companies, we don’t look away, we get involved
• Bullying and social exclusion
• Support after a cancer diagnosis
• sexual abuse, especially of children
These are very important to us, we hope for a lot of additional support here (membership with us is not absolutely necessary, we are happy to receive help). We want to help to ensure that these topics are no longer kept secret, but that the victims in particular find a wide audience. We are not only active in Germany, but also in Austria.
And this is what our contribution looks like:
“Stop mobbing” is the campaign by anti-bullying trainer Carsten Stahl. In his seminars at schools for students, teachers and parents it makes it clear that bullying is not harmless, but far more than that. Bullying is a criminal offense and can lead children and young people to commit suicide under pressure from their peers, elders and classmates. More and more cases are known about this. That must have an end!
In the meantime, Carsten Stahl has found support in Austria. Here Heinerich Wicke works with the MOSE association, a self-help organization for bullying, in cooperation with Carsten Stahl against bullying.
We help temple freaks by collecting donations and by selling T-shirts and scarves with “Stop Bullying”. For each product sold, one euro goes to the clubs. Even small amounts are of great help in combating this unworthy behavior; everyone can contribute something.
The diagnosis of “cancer” tears everyone affected and their relatives out of their usual lives. Nothing is as it was before. Affected people often find themselves in social and financial hardship when friends withdraw and jobs and ability to work are lost. We don’t want to leave these people alone with their difficult fate, but rather support them in all possible ways within the framework of the “Fuck Cancer” project. From diagnosis to therapy and beyond, we are there for you and want to help you not to lose your fighting spirit and zest for life. We also use donations and the sale of merchandising articles for this purpose.
WE help with HEART and LOVE and believe that everyone can do that. Do you want to be there too? We look forward to you.
Countless children are victims of sexual abuse every day. The perpetrators often come from their own family or neighborhood. “How could it come to this? Why didn’t we notice anything? ”Are questions that many parents then ask themselves (provided they are not among the perpetrators themselves).
It is now known that there are so-called “handbooks for pedophiles” on the Internet, these books that describe exactly how to win the trust of children and how to silence them. As a rule, the victims are marked by abuse their entire life, and often later not in a position to develop an independent life or even to participate in the world of work.
“Strijd tegen Misbruik” (Stop sexual violence against children) is a foundation in the Netherlands whose founders had experiences with sexual abuse on their own child. Now they are fighting to have these handbooks / manuals banned. In his home country, from which our chairman René Westendorp comes, also a victim, he was able to achieve his first success. The manual is now banned there, but it is still being distributed in other European countries. The book brutally conveys that abuse is harmless and wanted by the children.
In Austria, the “Happy Kids” association helps children who have experienced sexual violence to come to terms with what they have experienced. In order to counteract the suffering of these children, we are also involved here by selling T-shirts and scarves with the logo; one euro for each item sold also goes to the association.
