This year is again about doing good during the Christmas time: acting together, for each other.

The principle is simple: between 01. and December 17, a regional, national or international dish will be prepared daily at 5 p.m. by a team of chefs and served to Christkindelmarkt visitors for a donation. The donations raised will benefit charitable and community-building activities in the EuropeCity of Görlitz-Zgorzelec.

17 days ! 17 dishes ! five p.m.

What else ?

  • It is about practicing solidarity, the 17-days campaign is not a competition for the “largest bills”, also “small” helps a lot.
  • The campaign takes place at Christmas market, so on site … and not on the Internet. That’s precisely why “social media” is a small trifle compared to your commitment in and around the cooking tent.
  • The 17-days campaign is non-political, rather very personal ! Therefore there are no corresponding ensigns, national flags, banners or similar in the area of the cooking tent.
  • References to your personal engagement are welcome.
  • Unfortunately, we cannot finance the ingredients for your cooking event.
