RB Leipzig offers support with #WirAlle campaign

What's more important than football? ALL OF US | #WirAlle campaign to offer support during Coronavirus crisis | Charity campaigns and support for social institutions | Stay at home exercises and activities

Dear fans!

Corona. Who would have thought a few weeks ago that this word would come to dominate and determine our daily lives. The virus has taken us into a completely unknown situation and it's now up to us to make the best of it.

In aid of this, we have launched the diverse #WirAlle campaign, which will take place over the next few weeks. The campaign was set up to encourage the ongoing support of the city, the region and the people and we want to emphasise that nothing is more important than health! 

We want to get through this difficult time together so that we can be back celebrating the beautiful game as soon as possible. However, at the moment, sport has to take the back seat.

Because what's more important than football? ALL OF US!

Donate blood

Hospital patients are desperately dependent on blood and blood plasma donations, now more than ever. Almost everyone between the ages of 18 and 68, who weighs at least 50kg and feels in good health is eligible to donate. The facilities for donations have very high safety and hygiene standards and offer lots of support and protection to donors.

Charity campaign

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 manage dto 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.

Our fourth initiative supported Die Arche children's foundation, who fight against child poverty in Germany. The club donated an initial €20,000, with proceeds also coming from charity auctions for RBL memorabilia and your own donations, raising a total of €31,370.

Our fifth project supports four initiatives at once, with RB Leipzig donating €5,000 to each of the following causes:

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

#WeKickCorona

Former RBL player Joshua Kimmich has started the We Kick Corona initiative together with his Bayern and Germany teammate Leon Goretzka in order to help support charities and social insitutuions during the Coronavirus crisis with donations.

Our three Germany internationals Lukas Klostermann, Marcel Halstenberg and Timo Werner, as well as Leipzig head coach Julian Nagelsmann, have already signed up to support the campaign with donations.

Solidarity fund

In a show of solidarity with other Bundesliga clubs, Bayern München, Borussia Dortmund, Bayer 04 Leverkusen and RB Leipzig will make available €20 million to help support Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 clubs that have been negatively affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Christian Seifert, speaker of the DFL presidential board:

This decision proves that solidarity in the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 is more than just talk. On behalf of all clubs, the DFL's presidential board is extremely grateful to all four Champions League clubs.

Oliver Mintzlaff, CEO of RB Leipzig:

Through productive and constructive discussions with Bayern, Dortmund and Leverkusen we arrived at the conclusion that despite it being a difficult time for every club, we wanted to do our part to help those clubs that have been and will be more severely impacted by this crisis. The Bundesliga is a world-class league and is made up of a diverse 36 clubs, who need to stick together in times of crisis.
