This year the big Christmas parcel campaign „Present from the heart“ of the Bavarian aid organization humedica is specially supported by the city of Kaufbeuren, the Christmas Parcel City 2019. Highlight of this joint engagement for children in need is a colourful afternoon at the “Obere Kaiser-Max-Street”.

This year´s highlight of the “Present from the heart” campaign takes place the 9th of November 2019 at the Obere Kaiser-Max-Street in Kaufbeuren, Germany. On the sidelines of the Martini Market Place a colourful program, which starts at 3 pm with several protagonists, awaits young and old visitors. Among others the Artistica Anam Cara Association has announced to present an acrobat number, the sporting club and the Jörg Lederer school will offer additional sportive entertainment.

Julia Haug and the music school as well as the kindergartens Arche and Grünwalder Straße will take care of the musical arrangement on stage. The Mariengymnasium will show what „Pezziball Drumming“ is all about. Hot beverages and tasty treats will provide the necessary warmth in wet-cold temperatures.

The Christmas parcel campaign „Present from the heart“ was initiated 17 years ago. Sternstunden e. V. supports this campaign for more than 10 years now and funds the logistics costs for parcels, which go to Eastern Europe and Bavaria. The media partner Bayern 2 assists the parcel packers for 3 years with reports and calls.

Since 2003 the campaign brings Christmas joy to thousands of children in Eastern Europe and Germany as well as to several humedica oversea projects with lovingly packed parcels. 2018 approximately 88.000 „Presents from the hearts“ reached girls and boys in need.

Who has not yet had time to pack a Christmas parcel can bring his „Present from the heart“ until the 12th of November to one of our collection points all over Bavaria. Then we will start to collect the parcels and the collection points will only open selectively until the „Present from the heart“ truck will arrive to pick up the parcels for people in need.

Alternatively, you can donate 20 Euro for a parcel full of Christmas joy for children in need outside of Europe. Volunteers will pack these parcels on site in Ethiopia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan or Haiti and distribute them directly to the children in order to avoid high transport costs.

Join in and bring your parcel to our truck until the 09th of November 2019 and celebrate with us the sharing of Christmas joy.
