Review of the LRGKF live on TV RTL telethon - The longest fund-raising marathon on German television

As early as last year, during his live appearance on German TV, Dr. Thomas Stoffmehl had announced that the cooperation with the RTL foundation was oriented towards the long term and would be extended further in the future. In this stance, two pieces of good news could be announced on 24 November at the RTL telethon: The sum on the donations cheque could be doubled to EUR 200,000 and the local project Lunch Club will become an official RTL children’s home in 2018.

The donations will go to the two RTL children’s homes in Stuttgart and Leipzig and from 2018 also to the Lunch Club in Ahlen. In the institutions, the children not only receive a healthy meal but are also tutored and supported through creative play and educational offers. Thanks to the joint commitment, the Lunch Club can extend its opening hours to five days a week.
