Project VIII: Olmo fan package up for auction

RB Leipzig are running a charity campaign over several weeks featuring different projects | RB Leipzig and RBL fans raise €51,300 for Leipziger Tafel | #WirAlle ticket campaign raises €40,574 to support Leipzig-based football clubs | €33,025 raised for Straßenkinder e.V. | Donation of €31,370 to help Die Arche children's foundation | Project V helped four different institutions | Project VI raised over €30,000 for children's charity | Project VII sees the auction of Yussuf Poulsen's Denmark kit in aid of "Naechstenliebe" E.V

As part of the #WirAlle campaign, RB Leipzig has been running a charity campaign for several weeks now in order to support various local institutions. The club will contribute a minimum of €100,000 in total to the campaign.

Several projects have already helped raised funds. We began by helping the Leipziger Tafel, which helps feed and care for the needy, with an incredible €51,300. On top of our donation of €20,000, money was raised from players auctioning their football memorabilia and sales from limited-edition #WirAlle T-shirts, as well as your individual donations. 

Next we started selling virtual tickets to replace what would have been our home game against SC Paderborn, with a FIFA simulation of the match being streamed instead. We managed to sell 20,287 tickets for €2 each, therefore raising €40,574 for Leipzig Football Association's 81 clubs, with the funds being shared among them.

Our third project supported Straßenkinder e.V., who work to help children on the street. Again we donated €20,000 as a club, while further auctions for player memorabilia and your donations helped raise a total of €33,025.

Project number four raised money to help Die Arche children's foundation, who fight against child poverty in Germany. The club donated €20,000 to the cause, with money also raised from auctions for player memorabilia. Along with proceeds from the sale of our limited edition #WirAlle shirts and your donations, we have been able to donate a total of €31,370 to the foundation. 

Of course you can continue to donate to this wonderful cause:

Our fifth project was aimed at helping four initiatives in one go:

  • Leipziger Oase homeless shelter
  • Die KiPPE - Leipzig street magazine
  • Tagestreff INSEL day shelter
  • TiMMi ToHelp e.V.

Each institution received a donation of €5,000 from RB Leipzig. Once again, player memorabilia was also be up for auction to help raise money, plus you can simply donate directly to the cause too.

Our sixth project is aimed at supporting the Leipziger Kinderstiftung, which is dedicated to protecting children in extreme poverty in our region and elsewhere. Once again, we got the ball rolling with a donation of €20,000. In addition, United Charity auctioned off two FIFA card, signed by Timo Werner and Dayot Upamecano. The final amout raised was a whopping €31,086!

With project number seven, we are looking to support "Naechstenliebe". Yussuf Poulsen is putting two signed, original Denmark kits up for auction. Yussi will then match the sum of the purchase with a donation of his own. You can find the auction of Yussi's kits via United Charity here. The total raised by project VII was €1,600.

Our eighth project will support an initiative launched by RBL fan group Zone 147, which is raising money for the Leipzig Wildlife Park. An exclusive fan package comprised a Dani Olmo jersey, a mini ball and a frisbee - all signed by Dani himself, of course!
