Headição @ Würth

For the new Würth-branch in Kaiserslautern there was a nice opening ceremony. For this occasion we brought a beautiful table labled with Würth & Headição. The Headis join-in-acitivity was lots of fun for the visitors and we saw some nice action.

This incredible outdoor table was donated to the Jugendförderverein Kaiserslautern Nord and now will be placed in the Naturfreibad Otterberg, so lots of kids and young adults have access to the table. The opening ceremony also had a nice tombola and the proceeds were entirely donated to Headição by the Würth GmbH. Thanks a lot!

Update from Dominican Republic

Our project is about kids doing sports together! So our goal is not only to visit them once and leave but to set up a long termed sports programm. So we’re happy to see that the kids are still having fun at the table.

We also send them new balls several times and some money to build new tables.

Ball signed by Mats Hummels is sold

Mats didn’t have to think twice to sign the Ball for Headição. At our shooting in Munich he also did really well playing Headis!

Donation for Mats Hummels Ball successful!

On all our channels people could bid on the ball. From the very first day Corazon and Lauchgesicht rose the bids. Finally Lauchgesicht won with 60€!

He will receive the Ball and the framed picture of René and Mats at the next tournament. Thanks you! The donation will go straight to our next Headição-Trip in South Africa!

New Balls for Port Elizabeth

Our stay in Port Elizabeth was some months ago but the guys from weltwärts of the ASC Göttingen kept on running Headição there. The students still have lots of fun playing!

We just went out and played

As we heard of the “Ethno-Pop Festival der Kulturen” in K-Town we just grabbed the phone and set our appearence there! Thomas and Metz took a table and drove about one minute over and started playing with the kids. Some of the kids are refugees or socially disadvanted so it was a great pleasure for us to be part of  the Festival!

Our trip to Port Elizabeth

14.800 Km seperate Kaiserslautern and Port Elizabeth. At the end of march we went there to build four Headis tables at four schools. The trip characetrized by minor obstacles and major excitement!

adventure

This term is part of all our Headição trips. This year the host of our apartment told us directly at our arrival that rain barrels are very hard to find in South Africa. So we changed the timetable, ordered some rain barrels and managed the new situation.

Table tennis tables need more than just rain barrels so in the meantime we started drilling holes and laminating the wood. Some of the schools didn’t have electricity so we had to prepare everything in our apartment! We had big plans and at the end of the week of course everything worked out! This time we even were in a country where more than one of us was able to speak the local language!

solidarity

The team spirit of the Headição makes these trips so special! The owner of our apartment was called  Fred und helped us a lot! Fred was a big Fan of Headição since we tole him about our project at our arrival. After telling us about the problem of getting rain barrels he helped us to find a solution for this problem. Just on the next day he drove us to a special plastic store to order some barrels. This has probably saved us from traipsing around the whole city!

Headição is based on this solidariy und every single Euro donated shows the love to this project!

joy

The most important thing about Headição is to spread the fun playing Headis as a collective. All those smiling kids once more showed us that this project is the perfect way for us to make that happen. The joy that is brouht to us by the kids makes every trip unforgettable. Our partner in charity Carl Kenz also contributes the fullfil this goal. The joy that is getting back to us is so special every time. Just read what Kenz has to say: As I was alsmost done with my artwork, a surreal humoristc peace sign incl the Nelson Mandela quote “It always seems impossible until it’s done”, the kids had a break an suddenly there was nothing but party! 300 kids were dancing around me and celebrating the painting! I never witnessed something comparable! A unique experience for my and one more reason to keep going!”

community

On our trip we met a lot of people and got a lot of support. The boys and girls of  „weltwärts“ will supervise Headis in the future. They already had the idea of organising a tournament for all four schools. Already during our fligh back home we received the first pictures of kids playing! That’s the spirit we want to spread around the world! Thanks to everybody who supports us!

Our guy Carl Kenz says: “Another highlight at the Charles Duna school were kids screaming “KENZ KENZ KENZ” on our last day after I finished the artwork. So far I only saw something like that at huge concerts and to be honest in such a moment you feel somehow small, surreal, goosebumps deluxe…”!

There is nothing left to be added!
