We wrapped up our fundraiser on March 4th with an evening of song, trivia and prize drawings. Thank you to all who contributed to this effort!
Together we raised €3209!
These funds will support the work of our selected charities.
Our local charity, Bunter Kreis Rheinland (BKR), works with families of prematurely born and chronically ill children as well as children with disabilities. We are supporting their sibling program; it seeks to address the psychosocial and emotional needs of siblings and helps them cope with their special life situation.
Our international charity is the FAWCO Target Project S.A.F.E., which supports the work of Hope for Girls and Women in Tanzania as they address gender-based violence and work to end the practice of FGM in the Mara Region of Tanzania through programs like alternative rites of passage.
We recognize our generous mask and prize donors.
Their contributions made this event possible.

We still have a beautiful selection of adult and children's masks for sale. Many have been hand-sewn; All have been donated. With new regulations requiring medical grade masks to be worn in public spaces, these fun and beautiful masks will let you express your style by double-masking – it's a thing!
Prices have been set just above what you might find in the stores. ALL proceeds will go to charity (and we'll cover shipping).
In 2006, the Club received its article of incorporation as a nonprofit organization (e.V. status) and stipulated, through its constitution, a commitment to help the local and international community at large, with a specific focus on women and children. The AIWCC aligns its charitable efforts with the FAWCO Target Program’s three year cycle, with the overarching goal to improve the lives of women and children in the areas of Education, Environment, Health and Human Rights on a rotating basis. The Target Program for Health launched in March 2019 and runs through March 2022.
By supporting one local organization for a three-year period, we build close relationships in our community and make a meaningful difference through our financial support. Our charity partner keeps us abreast of their good works, future projects and how donated funds are being utilized.
