The Carol Singers‘ Campaign

The bulk of our funding is raised through the Carol Singers‘ Campaign. Every year between Christmas and Epiphany, around 300.000 children bless homes and collect donations for children in need. Our annual Carol Singers‘ Campaign is the biggest global solidarity campaign by children for children.

The Carol Singers bring the blessings of the Christ Child into every German home. Following the motto “Bring a blessing, be a blessing“, they collect money for children in need in other parts of the world.  Every year, projects in one country are chosen as examples for the Carol Singers‘ Campaign. They serve to illustrate the problems affecting local children and how our project partners successfully address them. In the past years, the lives of children with special needs in Peru, interreligious projects in Lebanon and the day-to day life of the children of working migrants in Ukraine have served as examples for the Carol Singers‘ Campaign.

Every year, TV journalist Willi Weitzel travels for the Carol Singers‘ Campaign to the country chosen as example for the Campaign, where he visits projects supported by the Carol Singers‘ Campaign. For the Carol Singers‘ Campaign 2021, he visited Ukraine, where he met siblings Nastia and Kola as well as many more children. They all have to grow up without mother, father or both parents.

Many children, young people and also grown-ups continue to collect donations for Kindermissionswerk throughout the year with activities such as Children’s World Mission Day and fundraising events in their schools and parishes. You find more about the activities of Kindermissionswerk here
