In a Burda-funded course called Höfe.Bilden.Vielfalt (i.e. Farms.Educate.Diversity), 18 farmers looked at how to make their farms more ecologically diverse: combining agriculture and biodiversity.
The flood disaster in mid-July shook many people in Germany, and the willingness to help afterwards was great. And Marcel Remus, the well-known luxury real estate agent, decided to turn his traditional "Remus Lifestyle Night", which usually celebrates summer on Mallorca with celebrity friends, clients and business partners, into a "Remus Charity Night" - benefitting the Tribute to Bambi Foundation to raise funds for flood victims.
Numerous guests turned up for the event at Son Amar, which was held under strict hygiene restrictions and mandatory testing for everyone. Among the guests were well-known people such as Patricia Riekel, Chairwoman of the Tribute to Bambi Foundation, TV presenter Frauke Ludowig, model Franziska Knuppe, Lilly zu Sayn-Wittgenstein, Lilly Becker, Maxi Arland and Dame Joan Collins. The 90s disco icon Dr. Alban got the guests dancing with hits like "It's My Life" and "Sing Halleluja".
"This natural disaster touches us all. It is unbelievable that so many people are left with nothing from one day to the next. That is why it is very important to me to help them."

During the evening, the guests donated a total of EUR 64,000, which will be divided between the Tribute to Bambi Foundation and the project "RTL - Wir helfen Kindern". With the donations, the Tribute to Bambi Foundation will support organisations affected by the flood so that they can quickly get back to work and offer their aid projects.
"This disaster has dramatically worsened many children's situation. Due to the flood, which destroyed schools and day-care centres, children who need special support have to be looked after and taught under the most difficult conditions for months now. They therefore desperately need our help. We will donate the money that goes to the Tribute to Bambi Foundation to organisations that specifically help rebuild educational institutions and set up projects that support children."
Patricia Riekel, Chairwoman of the Board of the Tribute to Bambi Foundation
