BigShoe - our goal is to help children

managed by I. Wetzel

About us

It began with the ”Sommermärchen” during the FIFA World Cup 2006 in Germany. The Togo national team was based in Wangen im Allgäu. When they heard about Nourisson from Togo who was born with a cleft and urgently required an operation, the citizens of Wangen began collecting money to help pay for the medical requirements.

And so began the great idea and story of BigShoe which progressed to Africa in 2010 and the Ukraine/Poland Euro 2012. Thanks to a large number of generous donors, we have been able to operate on many needy children. Our new goal for the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil is TO OPERATE ON AT LEAST 100 NEEDY CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD

BigShoe won the “World-Cup-Bambi 2006” Television Prize, awarded by Hubert Burda Media (presented by Franz Beckenbauer at the Daimler Benz Museum 2006)
