After our 2017 Charity Event, member Suzanne Callamari pledged to donate €1000 to Frauen helfen Frauen raised using her home-based business as a Mary Kay Cosmetics sales representative.

Here is the update she recently sent along with her latest offer to entice members to get involved:

“Ladies, great news!

I am excited to share with you that my efforts to raise €1000 for Frauen helfen Frauen (FhF) for 2017 are on track!

To contribute to our success of supporting a great cause in FHF, come and enjoy a wonderful pampering session and receive a €10 Mary Kay gift card. Bring a friend (who has never used Mary Kay) and receive a €5 gift card — your friend will receive €10 gift card as well.

Day, evening, and weekend appointments are available! This special is only open to IWCS club members who hold an appointment by September 14th, 2017. Seating is limited — so contact me using the form below as soon as possible!”

*If you have a business or service or fundraising idea you would like to use to raise money for FHF, please contact one our charity coordinator, Claire, to set something up!*


raffle ticketsAfter a wonderfully productive planning meeting last week, the IWCS Charity Committee is forging ahead with all kinds of plans for our Annual Charity Event 2016, to be held on April 30th of this year.


Specifically, we need a group of members to help Charity Coordinator Vaida Kovalick obtain raffle prizes for the event. Although parts of our total donation to the Frauenhaus comes from tickets sales and sponsorships, a large part of it comes from the raffling off of prizes during the event (over €1000 last year!).

This is a  relatively easy job that you can do mostly from home. This group will:

  • Brainstorm and create a list of local companies who might be willing to donate goods or gift certificates to our event,
  • Send out emails and letters to those companies, and
  • Follow up on those inquiries, either via email or in person.

Only a basic conversational level of German is required, as the emails and letters will be from templates. If anything, this task requires persistence and organization above all else. (Want to help but aren’t confident enough with your German skils? Sign up anyways and Vaida can pair you with someone!)

If this sounds like something you could help with, please contact Vaida using the form below.

We are all looking forward to working with YOU!
