Do not miss this opportunity, valid until March 31st, and buy the wine box online or onsite.

Lecko Mio, a scoop of ice cream can make the difference

Lecko Mio, the ice cream parlour in Kreuzberg, has opted for a nice initiative in support of the Ukrainian population that we share and support 100%, and which will start from their reopening on Sunday 6th March. If you buy two-scoop of ice cream, the quality of which, as we know, is guaranteed, the ice cream parlour will personally donate the earnings of every second scoop to Caritas.

Standard Serious Pizza: a pizza, a solidarity gesture

Standard Serious Pizza is one of the many Berlin restaurants and bars that had decided to support the Ukrainian population in their own small way. The pizzeria not only invites you to donate but has also decided to take action in first person: from today, Friday 4 March, you can order a #pizzaforukraine at the symbolic cost of €12, which will be delivered the next day to the Central Station (Hauptbahnhof) in Berlin to helpers as well as arriving refugees. If you place more than one order, the pizzeria itself will double the order and donate another pizza at its own expense. In this way, you will contribute to something really important!
