Blockade Update & Merry Christmas

Found this article on Nepal and the border blockade yesterday and decided it was worth sharing. Let’s hope this really works out and means, that the end of this ordeal for the people is near.

We are wishung all of you and your loved ones a Merry and Peaceful Christmas. May we all find some time to wind down, relax and reflect.

Thank You for all your Love and Support,

Carmen and Bea




Back online with an update from Nepal

Dear friends,

it feels wonderful to be back online after moving our website to its own webspace 🙂

It has been more complicated than we expected but after quite a few stressful evenings and lots of help and support from colleagues and friends, Carmen managed to get us up and running again last night, so well in time for Christmas, the New Year and… oh yes, let’s not forget….our upcoming fundraiser #BiathlonForS4K_3

Today we also received news from Nepal. Michael Hess from NOH gave us an update on the current situation regarding the border blockage and some future plans for the kids.

Here are a few excerpts from his Email, which left us both relieved but also quite alert of future developments; especially as news coverage reagarding the Indian-Nepalese border-conflict is practically non-existant (at least here in Germany).

“All is well here, we are getting ready for Christmas and the kids are happy.
The weather is cold and the electric often out, about 10 hours per day, cooking gas is almost non existent and we rely on electric rice cookers when the electric is accommodating, wood fires also when not.”

“We received word that Hope has been accepted at Shriners hospital in Boston USA, we are supposed to be there on the 14th.”

“Seven years ago a filmmaker started a documentary on NOH and finished it recently. The premier was yesterday evening in Toronto Canada. I have not heard any news yet from anyone, hopefully it all went okay.”

Please check out NOH’s own website for updates and ways to help Michael, his fabulous team and of course the kids.
And please keep in mind that NOH is known for helping those less fortunate, and believe us, we have seen this happening on numerous occasions…

Last but not least Michael allowed us to share this beautiful #Christmas photo with you. We truly hope it will put smiles on your faces 🙂

First Snow of the Season!

Yes!!! ❄️ Finally!

Snow in the BlackForest!

Let’s hope for some more (and lasting) snow until the end of January for #BiathlonForS4K_3!

Even without more snow our event will take place, as the Biathlon arena itself is snow-safe!

But of course training “in the wild” is much more fun 😉

We so can’t wait to do this again! Please join and support us if you can! ThankYou ❤️

Endlich, der erste Schnee im Schwarzwald! Jetzt muss er nur noch bis Ende Januar liegenbleiben und/oder neuer Schnee dazukommen. Denn dann können wir auch außerhalb der Biathlon-Anlage die Landschaft unsicher machen…

Ende Januar ist es ja endlich wieder soweit: #BiathlonForS4K_3.

Und wir können es kaum erwarten…

Bitte macht mit und/oder unterstützt uns, wenn irgendwie möglich. Dankeschön ❤️

Hier gibt es alle Infos zu #BiathlonForS4K_3 (PS: Für die deutsche Version ganz nach unten scrollen.)

WOW… Time flies…

Has it really been 3 years, since we first started “Action For S4K” to support “Sanctuary for Kids” = Kids in need? Guess #Twitter is never mistaken 😉 Thank You friends for all Your love and support! #TimeFlies


Wie die Zeit vergeht… Laut Twitter feiern wir heute bereits unseren 3. Geburtstag. Zeit für ein dickes Dankeschön an all unsere Freunde!





#Paris – “nous crions”

Our hopes have just been destroyed as the Paris attacks have been classified as terrorist attacks.

So, let us state this “We believe that any kind of fanaticism – political or religious – coming from whatever direction or background is completely wrong and can’t be excused with personal believes. Fullstop!”

#Paris, we are with you!!!

Our deepest condolences to each and everyone affected!
Lots of love and support to those in charge of damage control and support on location!

Das Einzelzimmer für € 57 pro Nacht inklusive Frühstück.

unnamed_1(2) We also worked out a new deal with Rainer from the Nordic – Schule Notschrei

Here are the new conditions:
