Why?

If there were no war on this earth, no misery, no diseases, no social imbalances, no environmental destruction, this would be the best.

But it’s not like that and we wondered what we could do to make the world a little bit of a better place.

What if all the richest and the healthiest gave enough so that the poor, the sick and the starving could make a good living?

It doesn’t happen also so we tried to come up with an idea.

Anybody who buys our product does not only convey a message for tolerance and against war, he also does something good by supporting people who need our help. In the column ‘Current Projects’ you can read up where your donation will be send to.

How Did That Come About?

So far, working meant gaining the biggest profit to us. For ourselves or for somebody else. We lost the ability to look for the most important things in life. And it was time to change that. Our dream was working wholeheartedly; everyone who is involved in our work should have a good living and a fair treatment.

It shouldn’t be about profit it should be about you and me.

Even if we can’t solve all problems, it is about reducing suffering. Territorial and religious wars, everlasting political conflicts, epidemics, the misery of refugees and the difference between the poor and the rich makes life difficult in many places on earth.

In most cases you expect somebody else to solve these problems. But why should you wait that long if you could do something?

The idea and the draft of our piece of jewelry exists more than one year. It’s from September 2014. From that on so many things happened until now…

If you want a change you can only start with yourself. As we realized it we founded this company. We want to give a great part of the proceeds back to people who need our help.

Our biggest wish is that all wars and all suffering on earth stopped. We can't change the world like we want to but with your help we can make people smiling again.

'You must be the change you wish to see in the world.'

Mahatma Ghandi

Shall I not tell you of something that is better than fasting, prayer and charity? Reconciling.
Prophet of the Quran

Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
Mahatma Gandi

Who We Are

We are an ordinary family of four and we're nearly all born in Hamburg. The parents Anja and Sven are doing commercial business, Tom just got his A-Levels and Moritz is still working on it. As a family we are committed to this project. There are frequent discussions which are fought passionately. We guarantee wholeheartedly this is just the beginning.

What does mean 'Preni Doni'?

'Preni Doni' can be translated from the language 'Esperanto'. It means 'taking for giving'. Esperanto isn't a usual language but it unites many languages into one. This fits perfectly into our idea. Esperanto is the most spoken neutral and constructed language for international communication.

Tolerance

Tolerance is a huge word and very common in these days because everywhere in the world and especially in Germany tolerance is absent.

In the 'Duden' you can find these synonyms to pick:

Enlightenment, open-mindedness, forbearance, accommodating, largess, generosity, liberality, humaneness, indulgence, openness, sympathy, impartiality, fair-mindedness.

How can you define tolerance for yourself? There are so many interpretations. One feels enlightened because he is gathering his information exclusively by the same newspaper every day. Another thinks he is open-minded but if a homosexual couple became his neighbors he would move out immediately.

Forbearance, I'm feeling caught... I'm not that forbearing driver but I'll try to improve. Accommodating, how difficult it is to lend somebody a helping hand if you feel treated unjustly. Largess means to share everything you have. It does not mean to drop everything you would dispose of. The remaining synonyms can be put into one sentence.

To encounter the other one liberally with generosity and humaneness; to understand the insecurity in our land indulgently; to be open-minded and entirely impartial for another's culture and to show him sympathy and compassion. All of this means tolerance. What a wonderful word.

Shall I not tell you of something that is better than fasting, prayer and charity? Reconciling.
Prophet of the Quran

Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war.
Albert Einstein

Not war, peace is the father of all things.
Willy Brandt

There is no path to peace. Peace is the path.
Mahatma Gandi

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
Margaret Mead

There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
Benjamin Franklin

If you judge people, you have no time to love them.

Projects

Hörer helfen Kinden e.V.

We are supporting "Hörer helfen Kindern e.V". This is how they describe themselves (translated). 'Radio Hamburg early took part in social responsibilit. 1988 the radio station was on air for one year when Dr. Thomas Walde started to campaign socially to prevent the future Hamburg living in the streets.

Back then the hosts in the broadcast made charity appeals during the Christmas time for 'Hörer helfen Kindern". Since then charity is a permanent feature of Radio Hamburg.'

With your help we are promoting this drive.

Telethon 2015 by 'Hörer helfen Kindern'

For the telethon 2015 we were in the broadcast studio of Radio Hamburg for committing our donation.

You can listen to it (in German)

Hinz & Kunzt

Having a shelter is taking for granted for the most of us; a permanent address is a basic requirement to get a job, to open an account, to feel snugly after coming home from work, to be a part of society, just to go with the territory.

There are many reasons for homelessness. Illness or unemployment are just two of them. Somebody tries to run away from hisself, somebody else runs away from economic hopelessnes or even worse - from war.

Nowadays the meaning of homelessness is even more seeable and obvious trough the inflow of refugees.

Beyond that we don't want to forget the people who haven't had a home even before. If you take a closer look the homeless and the refugees have a lot in common.

For us it is a special wish to give a part of our donations to the great organization 'Hinz & Kunzt'. From the beginning they campaigned for a bit comfort in our city.

Our Partners & Beliefs

It goes without saying that our products are made of resources which are gained sustainably, recyclable and traded fairly. If it's not possible consistently then we stay on reaching this aim. Accordingly we choose our partners and products thoroughly and we'll still do it with particular attention. We will consistently discuss if everything's correct about status quo; if it's necessary we will make changes to remain true on ourselves.
