BreakOut is a charity travel competition for the adventurous. Once a year, the participants start in pairs from Munich, Berlin and also, since last year, Cologne. You have 36 hours to travel as far away as possible without spending money on transportation. The teams travel for a good cause all over Europe on a donkey, bike, by foot, in a car, by train or submarine. The concept follows the idea of a donation marathon: Each team collects donations from their team sponsors for each kilometer traveled. The organization behind BreakOut is a student group of 30 young people volunteering for the planning, organization and implementation of the BreakOut. Here you can find out how to BreakOut
In 2019 BreakOut supports the Zeltschule e.V. as a partner organization. The NGO builds and manages tent schools for Syrian refugees in Lebanon (quite literally schools within the provisional refugee camps, consisting of thousands of tents) and provides the families in the camps with food and medicine. More than 12.000 people receive support and a perspective for their future through this help. The work is a direct investment in terrorism prevention. The aim is also to provide Syrian children with a way to escape child labor and to have a chance of making informed decisions and having a self-determined future as well-educated adults.
In 2018 BreakOut supports the EinDollarBrille e.V. as a partner organization. EinDollarBrille-opticians get educated locally and are therefore able to provide eyesight tests and the manufacturing of glasses at minimal cost. The cool part: 100% of your donations are going to the charity organization EinDollarBrille e.V. and help people with limited sight all over the world.
