AWA Vienna members voted in December 2018 to support Die Möwe as this year’s charity.

For 2019, we are proud to support Die Möwe, a non-profit organization that offers children, adolescents and their caregivers support and professional help with physical, mental and sexual abuse. They look after and accompany more than 4,000 people every year in its five protection centers. To learn more about Die Möwe, please visit their website: https://www.die-moewe.at/de

Other Ways You Can Give:

Foreign and Old Currency Collection

Many of us have left-over foreign holiday money and outdated currency (schillings, DM, Lira, etc.) stuffed in the back of a drawer. Let’s put it all to good use and collect it for our charity. It is still possible to exchange outdated coins and notes and all foreign currency. Please stop by the Clubhouse and drop any outdated or foreign money in our collection box!
