In 1978 publisher Axel Springer founded BILD hilft e.V. „Ein Herz für Kinder”, first only as a campaign for more traffic safety. The special thing about it: Every Euro cent gets distributed directly without any deduction to where the help is needed. With these donations needy children in Germany and across the entire world are assisted with the knowledge: You are not alone! „Ein Herz für Kinder” creates hope and stands for universal, borderless and fast help. It supports for example soup kitchens, homes for children, schools, orphanage’s, kindergartens, organises presents for Christmas and clinics with important medical care and machinery. This support also includes educations, preventions, sports programs and carries over into other countries. For children that are sick and cannot get adequate treatment near home the BILD-Hilfsorganisation supports them with life-saving operations abroad. Once a year the „Ein Herz für Kinder” Gala is broadcast live on ZDF where the individual projects are introduced and donations are requested.
