The charities

A child’s life is supposed to be filled with happiness, running around outdoors, playing with friends, getting their clothes dirty and laughing. However, for too many children this is not the reality. All over Switzerland, and the world, there are many children who are trapped in their hospital rooms and forced to look out of a window. Most unable to experience a family vacation because their parents cannot afford it due to the cost of their child’s medical treatment. Through Stiftung Theodora and Kinder mit seltenen Krankheiten, children that must go through this experience every day, are able to laugh and build a memory that is beyond what their sickness forces them to endure.

Through this event we want to support these charities and their cause. We believe that a smile can help a child heal.

Stiftung Theodora

The Theodora Children’s Charity (originally Theodora Children's Trust) was founded in 1994 by two brothers, in memory of their mother, Theodora Poulie. When one of Theodora’s sons was hospitalized for many months as a child, she brought joy, laughter and storytelling to his bedside through her regular visits. Theodora inspired her sons to bring magical moments to all sick and disabled children. To date, the lives of over half a million children have been improved thanks to the Giggle Doctor programme that they created.

KMSK (Kinder mit seltenen Krankheiten - Children with rare diseases)

In Switzerland, approximately 350,000 children and teenagers are suffering from rare or debilitating diseases. Often it is years before these diseases are even precisely diagnosed. While the children suffer from these diseases it is unknown, even by medical professionals, how the disease will progress. Support from the government and insurance is difficult to receive, if it is received at all, and it must be reviewed yearly. The costs are tremendous and leaves most families feeling helpless.
Kinder mit seltenen Krankheiten aim towards supporting those children and their families through public engagements that bring awareness, assuring that researchers and families exchange information to help build knowledge about these diseases and organizing direct financial support for the affected children and their families.
