O German-American Women’s Club Hamburg eV (DAFC) is now hosting his third time here Charity pop-up shop. “There are clothes, lots of new shoes, bags and hats, but also used and very well-preserved designer clothes,” says organizer Claudia Mörth. “It’s important for us: we are not a flea market. Everything here is in great condition, but still a great price.”

Stilwerk Hamburg: unusual jewelry, Advent arrangements and tombola
An important area for organizers is donated items, prepared by themselves or handcrafted. “We have a corner with biscuits, chutneys and jams.” There, visitors will also find sewn bags, Santa Claus socks and blankets. And there are Advent arrangements to match the Christmas season.
“The homemade jewelry we sell is particularly unusual. I’ve been buying it for years because it’s very beautiful and valuable.” Earrings, necklaces and bracelets are on display.
Of course, every classic charity pop-up shop also includes a giveaway. DAFC managed to collect as prizes tickets for a New Year’s Eve concert at Laeiszhalle and a hairdressing voucher from Marlies Möller worth 150 euros. A ticket should cost 3 euros.
Stilwerk Hamburg: famous Hamburg artist exhibits works
On the days of the charity pop-up store, three artists will also show their work at Stilwerk. When individual photos are sold, part of the money goes to DAFC projects. At the first meeting (November 23rd to 25th) Christine Hanwalter from Düsseldorf will be present – and will even paint live. “She also offers small units for children who want to participate,” says Claudia Mörth.
The well-known nautical painter from Hamburg Heinke Böhnert, committed to the DAFC, will also be present with her works. Photos of her, which incorporate original candles, will still be on display and available for purchase in early December. At the third meeting (7th to 9th December) Beatrice Dettmann will present her sculptures.
Proceeds from the charity pop-up shop will go towards projects that the DAFC has supported for years – for example Hamburg’s theatres, six of which the club is funding. “Children from socially disadvantaged areas are cared for here,” says Mörth. You receive a hot meal, support with homework and can play or do crafts. “In these homes they receive significant care and support in the afternoon.”

DAFC also supports the Ronald McDonald Houses in Hamburg. Parents of seriously ill or disabled children find a temporary home here. “In addition to the financial support for these homes, we are there every fortnight and together we prepare a beautiful dinner for the affected mothers and fathers.” The objective: to talk to the parents and distract them from their suffering. “So that they can at least have a good night once in a while in their extraordinary everyday life.”

Financial support for projects is very important for Claudia Mörth and her colleagues. This is one of the reasons why they have been planning their charity pop-up shop for weeks, down to the smallest detail. “We made a conscious decision to make it a little bigger this year – in the hope that we can raise even more money for important projects.”
