Re fundraiser Realschule Furth im Wald - geography teacher Eva Schmidt tireless "motor"

This year’s fund-raising campaign at the secondary school in Furth im Wald brought total proceeds of 2.100 €, only a few days before the Christmas holiday. Eva Schmidt, one of the geography teachers of the school, is the indefatigable “motor” of the support of our Nepalhilfe Beilngries e.V. We have been supported since 2006 and Eva Schmidt has been able to transfer the total sum of 8.600 € to the relief organization in Beilngries in the course of these years.

This could be accomplished through her personal commitment, for example her own craftwork of knitting or motivating the boys and girls, the coordination and preparation of the sales taking place every year beyond curriculums and time-tables.

There is always a wide range of articles made of wood or metal and textiles which are offered for sale. This year’s hit were little pearl bracelets for girls but also for boys at different prices.

But selling the calendar of the Nepalhilfe, “Himalaya 2014” and the Nepalese main dish Dal Bhat also attributed to the total receipts.

Especially the pupils of the 8th and 9th grades did extremely well this year showing off their crafts and baking skills.

Eva Schmidt remembers the successful sales in 2014 with pleasure when they sold knitted capes with the Nepalese flag. Numerous mothers of the pupils, Schmidt’s colleagues at school and of course the pupils themselves had lent a hand or rather a needle. They might have a surprise for us when they offer new articles for sale in the Christmas campaign 2014?
