Burda helps children

Burda helps children

All year round, the Tribute to Bambi Foundation funds projects throughout Germany aimed at helping children and young people and raises public awareness of misfortune and social injustice. The foundation strives to provide children in need with specific, sustainable assistance and to help improve their lives in the long term. The foundation is supported by prominent ambassadors and Bambi award winners and has been awarded the renowned DZI fundraising seal of approval.

The Tribute to Bambi charity event is held every year to collect donations with support from celebrities and business/media partners. All proceeds go to the Tribute to Bambi foundation. Since 2001, the foundation has supported around 150 non-profit organisations, some on multiple occasions, and has collected financial and material donations worth over 8.5 million euros.

When Patricia Riekel and Philipp Welte launched Tribute to Bambi in 2001, they had a vision of harnessing the star power of Bambi, Germany’s most important media award, to help children in critical circumstances. The glamour of Bambi would be used to do something good for the people struggling most in our society. Since then, Tribute to Bambi has been held every autumn.

Tribute to Bambi is a Hubert Burda Media initiative.
