Our Heart Beats for Berlin

Our Heart Beats for Berlin

The attack at Berlin’s Breitscheidplatz on the 19th of December shook us deeply and our sympathies go out to the victims and their families. That night was followed by a wave of compassion and sadness. But what happen’s next? Now is the time to support the victims and to remain by their sides.
Therefore we ask you to donate for WEISSER RING e.V., a nationwide active victim support organization. The people of Berlin stick together and AMPELMANN Berlin ist helping and we hope you will too.
