Germany Charity Initiative


We’re Nicole from The Expat Cast, and Shaun from The Germany Experience. We’re two expat podcasters living in Germany. Being sworn rivals, we face off against each other each Christmas to see who can raise the most money for charity.

This year, the charity we’ve chosen to support is Kinderlachen ("children's laughter"). Their aim: to help children across Germany who are in need or ill.  Donations go toward various projects aimed at this goal.

The project I've chosen is called "Bewegende Kinderschicksale" and focuses on helping children who face unexpected difficulties due to serious illness, an accident or personal circumstances.
