Thanks for another big donation :)

It happened again: One member donated one tenth of the money we need for a whole year. We are VERY grateful for this! Thank you!

Matchi1981 - a German living in China - donated 200 Euros. This one donation enables BeWelcome to run for  about 5 to 6 weeks.

I asked Matchi1981 why he donated such a big sum. Here is his answer:

"After I became a BeWelcome member and got used to this website, I was looking for an opportunity to support this community as back in 2013 I was very interested in hospitality exchange.

Settled up and being active within the New Members BeWelcome (NMBW) Team over several months/years was and still is very enjoyable for me.

Due to several changes in life within last 2 years (got married, promoted, moved to China, family started to grow,...) there were less and less spare time to be online supporting BeWelcome by volunteering, which is little frustrating when considering the fun it brought me.

When I saw the donation bar is back, I thought about those wonderful hours I spent volunteering and as I can't be so active my hope is that this monetary donation will help the community to move on with the upcoming tasks.

All the best for 2017 from Shanghai :) "

Doesn't this show the quintessence of BeWelcome: Sharing, supporting - not only by hosting and being a guest but also: VOLUNTEERING IS REWARDING AND FUN! :)

Everybody is welcome to join our teams of volunteers!
Be sure: The more you "invest" in BeWelcome, the more you receive in return: Friendship, trust and the feeling that you did your share to make the world a better place!





Many thanks Matchi1981!

Life priorities changed, but BW spirit remains. It's impressive to see how our old volunteers keep involving the community with nostalgia. Thank you Matchi1981!
