BRING DAS VELO NACH HAUSE

KINDERAUGEN - A performance full of fantasy for everyone aged 4 - 104

Thank you for the amazing tour!

THE GOAL OF OUR CROWDFUNDING WAS REACHED AND EVEN SURPASSED

One week after the successful campaign, we still received more donations, so that we finally raised 8'590 CHF, which is 107% of the amount we had hoped for. Wow... that's incredible!

In total, 45 people took a moment to support art and gave wings to the "Kinderaugen" project! Many supporters donated anonymously, so we can't thank them personally. If you are one of them, we thank you at least in this way from the bottom of our hearts.

Thanks to you, the performance can now go on tour to Bern, St. Gallen and Herisau! We are flying!
