Please help our church win € 1,000 ...
... to go towards our capital campaign. The local savings bank (NASPA) is celebrating its 175th anniversary this year and as part of its celebrations is giving away €175,000 - €1,000 each to 175 charitable projects. Only the 175 projects (of over 300 registered) with the most votes will get the money. So please vote for our project. Just click on this link:
Then click on “Abstimmen,” type in your email address, click on “Abstimmen” again and then (finally) confirm by clicking on the link in the email you will receive (a little complicated – but they want to avoid multiple voting). You can vote once every 24 hours!
