The campaign is based on a proposal of City Management. On the one hand, it aims to offer an alternative to a direct street donation to the homeless and beggars for visitors willing to donate. On
the other hand, it aims to create a foundation for helping the people concerned not only to be supplied on site but also to lead them out of their social difficulties through advice and care.
Homeless people and beggars, who physically or through other handicaps, are unable to recognise the offers of help must be guided by social workers to the governmental and non-governmental help
system of “Die Freien” and the Hanseatic City of Hamburg.
In recent years, the proceeds from this campaign were invested in the so-called “StützPunkt”. The StützPunkt is a place of refuge and contact for the homeless in a central location of the city centre (Klosterwall).
The possibility of storing luggage in lockers has increased the mobility of the homeless and enables them to take advantage of residence opportunities outside of the city.
Thanks to the professional statement by the Caritas Association staff, many homeless people were integrated into the aid services of the city.
