Designing and printing a calendar is one thing, selling is the other, which is the far more difficult task. That’s why we are dependent on any kind of ideas and commitment using every possible opportunity to sell our product, like the presentations of Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner, Ralf Dujmovits und Hans Kammerlander, who contributed the professional photos to the calendar. This year presentations have been given from Flensburg in the far north to Miesbach in the far south of Germany as well as to our neighbouring country Austria.

It wasn’t hard to gain permission to sell our calendars, however finding a salesman/saleswoman was far more difficult. Personal contacts in the respective regions of Germany are a huge advantage and where there weren’t any, the data bank of our donators helped as well. In the end we could usually find someone who was willing to help us out.

At the presentations, which ran from the beginning of October to the end of November, Irmgard Reiser and a friend of hers supported the sales. Hans Kammerlander and Toni Mutschlechner conducted the presentations in Erlangen, along with police officer Horst Holzmann, at the visit of Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner in Nördlingen.

The medical students Juliane Hente and Hannah Fischer were a real eye-catcher at the presentation of Hans Kammerlander in Essen as they wore traditional Nepali clothes. The young women know Nepal and the NHB not only from a trekking tour, but also from their internship at the Siddhi Memorial Hospital in Bhaktapur in autumn 2013.

This way of selling contributed an enormous part to fulfilling the main aim of selling 10,000 of the produced calendars.
