During my whole life sport has been an essential part of it. It gives us so much more than just the physical activity. It also has a positive effect on our mental wellbeing and social life. It teaches us a lot of valuable lessons, contributes to our inner balance and stress management. Therefore, I am convinced that everybody should be enabled to practice sports. Independent from his/her cultural or social background, age, or gender. Unfortunately, this is not the case. In Germany for example more than 15% of the people in cities are threatened by poverty. Within the EU-zone it’s on average 17%. The numbers for children are even higher - roughly + another 5% (Statista, 1171 & 158726, 2020) - and increasing.
We are creating opportunities and chances. Every person in the world should have the gear to practice sports accordingly. By pursuing this goal we are ensuring a healthier, happier, and better world for everyone. Everybody will grow and benefit from STRIDE4GOOD. We are starting in our local area but striving towards a global engagement with qualified partners following our two main pillars of workstreams.
Why supporting STRIDE4GOOD? We are collaborating only with selected partners and all donations will be personally hand over to our project partners. For us, it is from the utmost importance to ensure full transparency and being a reliable and trustful partner for all our stakeholders. The handovers will be shared in our Social Media accounts and on this website.
Pillar I - Donating Clothes
Our main pillar is about cloth donations. To help our mission you as an individual can donate your old and/or not used sports clothes at any time. We are taking every kind of sports clothes like:
We are going to collect all donations and hand them over to our pre-selected and qualified partners. No clothes will be sold to make profit.
Pillar II - Raising Money
We are understanding ourselves as a Non-Profit-Organisation. But as the donations of children's clothes are rather limited we are raising money too to buy the necessary clothes and equipment for our programs. We want to support selected projects in the future like money raising for special purchases like e.g. basketball hoop. Those campaigns will be shared accordingly once set up.
