Stilwerk Hamburg: original jewellery, Advent arrangements and raffle
An important area for organizers is donated, self-made or handmade items. “We have a corner with cookies, chutneys and jams.” There visitors can also find self-made bags, Santa stockings and blankets. And there are Advent arrangements that coincide with the Christmas season.
“The handmade jewelry we sell is particularly unusual. I have been buying it for years because it is very beautiful and valuable.” Earrings, necklaces and bracelets are on display.

Stilwerk Hamburg: Well-known Hamburg artist exhibits his works
During the days of the charity pop-up store, three artists will also show their works at Stilwerk. When individual paintings are sold, part of the money goes to DAFC projects. At the first appointment (November 23 to 25) Christine Hanwalter from Düsseldorf will be there and she will even paint live. “It also offers small units for children who want to participate,” says Claudia Mörth.
The well-known nautical painter from Hamburg, Heinke Böhnert, committed to the DAFC, will also be present with her works. Her photographs, which incorporate original candles, will remain on display and available for purchase from her in early December. On the third date (December 7 to 9) Beatrice Dettmann will present her sculptures.
Profits from the charity pop-up shop will go to projects that the DAFC has supported for years, such as the Hamburg theatres, of which six are funded by the club. “Children from socially disadvantaged areas are cared for here,” says Mörth. You get a hot meal, homework support, and you can play games or do crafts. “In these homes they receive significant care and support in the afternoons.”

The DAFC also supports the Ronald McDonald Houses in Hamburg. Parents of seriously ill or disabled children find a temporary home here. “In addition to the financial support for these houses, we are there approximately every two weeks and together we prepare a nice dinner for the affected mothers and fathers.” The goal: talk to the parents and distract them a little from their suffering. “So that they can at least occasionally spend a pleasant evening in their extraordinary everyday life.”
More about the subject
For Claudia Mörth and her colleagues, financial support for the projects is very important. This is one of the reasons why they have been planning their charity pop-up store down to the smallest detail for weeks. “This year we’ve made a conscious decision to make it a little bigger, in the hope that we can raise even more money for important projects.”
