It is estimated that in Germany about 10% of people with Parkinson’s are organized in self-help groups or at least occasionally use their services.
That is 40,000 out of 400,000 sufferers.
It is our declared goal to increase this number permanently and steadily, because the exchange with „fellow sufferers“, the rich offer of information, the newly developing friendships, sports that one suddenly (re)discovers for oneself, the self-chosen isolation that one leaves? all these are good reasons to join one of the numerous self-help groups. Therefore we will extend our information offer by reports from the community of the so-called SHG’s.
For all the others, who are not yet ready to open up, we want to continue to be a window to the Parkinson’s world, whose inhabitants they have become without their own intervention, and keep them informed with value and with heart and mind.
As „desk jockeys,“ our financial needs are fortunately low, especially when measured by the number of people reached. Nevertheless, there are such financial needs, which are essentially determined by IT infrastructure, image and sound technology, rights acquisition and research costs, travel expenses, accounting and annual financial statements.
We will reach over 160,000 page views this year, our targeted Instagram follower count of 5,000 is currently increasing by 500 more followers each month, and our YouTube videos have been viewed over 50,000 times so far.
We are very happy to be supported by the following sponsors in this effort
