DONATE A SMILE
At this point we would like to introduce the charity partners that the he Ride-of-Smiles would like to support - just a few words to explain about.
If you start the search for NGO fundraising partners, tyou find a large amount of people helping others all over the world. Each of them a hero of his or her own . You really feel like hugging all these wonderful people, that try in incredibly beautiful number to help the world. That this is not possible, is easily understood.
As a longtime physician, I know well enough that every aid project needs a necessary infrastructure which holds the right resources at the right time at the right place. As romantic as it may be to travel with check or money bags around the world and to hand these over with high media performance. Professional help is a very basic work. That needs logistics, moneyraising and administration as well as enthusiasm, empathy and professional collecting of donations to fund this work. Only this way help can develop the longterm targets to sustainably help people.
That is why we decided to cooperate with professional organizations. Their work has not only been proffessional and recognized for decades all over the world in 5 continents. Only they are also able to confirm the donations with salable tax certificates. And that way to credit a portion of the donations to the donors as tax return.
The correct billing of these organizations is annually presented and examined in detailed annual reports. I personally know some of their wonderful work from personal encounters and experiences .
A dediacation that cannot be valued high enough , especially these recent years where the world seems to tumble between longgone political war conflicts and nature striking back all over the planet with severe consequences for everyone, how much more for the poorest of all.
When selecting the fundraising partners mutual reliability was as important to us in all their talks like to pursue a common goal.
Help should not only be elsewhere in the world, but also locally here in Bavaria, Germany and arrive simply everywhere where it is needed.
Regardless of race, religion, race or political persuasion. Christian donors should be addressed as well as people who prefer to donate to non-church organizations. And each donor should be able to decide whether he supports all organizations or only a specific target.
Common to all donations partners was an incredible, open enthusiasm and support they have placed in the project of a completely unknown motorcyclist. This trust I personally feel as great honor. I´ll be glad even more to mmet this confidence and ill this project with a lot of helping life to others.

All donations to reach me personally in any other form or on the go, I will report in the blog and spread them in equal shares to all organizations once I get back.
