FOXG1 Switzerland

Andrin is one of three children in Switzerland affected by FOXG1 syndrome. This means that his learning abilities are so limited that he will most likely never be able to walk or speak like a healthy child. Andrin is now almost three and a half years old. His stage of development is comparable to that of an 8-month-old child. But this is not what is currently determining the everyday life of his family. Really exhausting are other symptoms. For one thing, there is the reflux; regular vomiting is the consequence and then the screaming attacks at night. Nevertheless, Andrin is doing well according to the circumstances and is the big sunshine of the family. Children with the same syndrome suffer from epileptic seizures, are often fed through the stomach tube, can never sit or walk. Unfortunately, rare diseases are often uninteresting for research and that is exactly why a few parents have joined forces to finance research projects with the aim of alleviating the symptoms or in the best case to cure the disease.


Friends international

There are hundreds of millions of marginalized children and youth in the world. Despite many efforts of different organizations the situation worsens more and more. Friends International believes that traditional charity models do not work and must be replaced by new models that combine the best of the NGO world and the best of the business world. Friends International is committed to creating a future in which all children are protected from all forms of abuse and become viable productive citizens of their country, contributing to a more peaceful, just and sustainable world.
The programme supports children attending school, young people seeking employment and families supporting their own children. They also promote the reintegration of children and young people so that they can actively participate in the development of their society.


Surprise works

Surprise has been supporting socially disadvantaged people in Switzerland since 1998. With employment opportunities, opportunities to participate in social life and low-threshold support, Surprise opens up perspectives and concrete fields of action for them. This help to self-help activates people's abilities and is therefore sustainable. Surprise sensitises the public to social justice, promotes social diversity and makes technical expertise available. These goals combine Surprise's offerings: the street magazine, the social city tours, the street football and street choir, the gastronomic solidarity network, the Café Surprise, the job and support programs SurPlus and Chancenarbeitsplatz as well as the low-threshold social counselling and support at three locations in Basel, Bern and Zurich.

Surprise is one of 110 members from 35 countries in the International Network of Street Newspapers (INSP). Surprise is not profit-oriented, is financed without government funds and is dependent on donations and grants.


Employees from the Altried Foundation

Since October 2018, we have had two employees from the Altried Foundation in our supportoffice. They support us with our daily office duties as well as small tasks, which correspond to their abilities and possibilities. We are very happy about the cooperation and are convinced that both sides can profit from it. 

The Altried Foundation is an institution that supports adults with physical, mental or spiritual disabilities in shaping their lives in the community. The Altried Foundation offers a wide range of residential, leisure and work facilities as well as training for disabled people at its Schwamendingen, Dübendorf and Wannental sites. The foundation offers jobs in a sheltered environment with various tasks. The Foundation offers day-care facilities for people with an increased need for care. The foundation thus creates a total of around 340 jobs.


The "green sneaker"

Nic runs fast as the wind. Preferably in his green sneakers. Only, Nic runs a race against time. Against the absolute standstill. Against NBIA. Nine-year-old Nic from Zurich and around 7000 other patients worldwide currently have a realistic chance of winning their race against time.

NBIA is a group of hereditary diseases of the central nervous system. An effective therapy does not yet exist. Nic and all other patients now have a new chance within reach. A research team at Oregon Health & Science University is currently developing a drug to treat this rare disease. Even people with rare diseases, especially children, have the right to hope for positive and affordable research results.

From autumn 2018 to spring 2019, we donated 50 centimes to the "Arco Foundation - NBIA Foundation Switzerland" with every Special sold. Thanks to your help, we were able to transfer the impressive amount of CHF 10'774.50 to the Foundation.

Foundation Smiling Gecko

To help needy children and families in Cambodia, the Foundation Smiling Gecko pursues a very impressive and integral approach that enables and promotes a self-determined life in rural areas.

School & education, agriculture, crafts, tourism, industry and commerce are the six pillars of the project. The projects are designed in a way that they can finance themselves and as well as the cost of schools and the education of children. This creates an exemplary model of a functioning, rural community that provides people with education, decent work and a sustainable income.

From spring 2018, 50 cents will be donated to the Smiling Gecko Foundation with every sale of a Nooch Special. The Foundation attaches great importance to every donation being used locally where it’s needed. With a purchase of a Nooch Special, the donation goes directly and without detours to the children and families in Cambodia.


Foundation Wunderlampe

Together with the Foundation Wunderlampe we collect to fulfill heart wishes of seriously ill or handicapped children and adolescents.

Severe or long-term sick and disabled children and adolescents live in a world characterized by many hospitals stays, surgeries, disclaimers and restrictions. In this difficult and often sad everyday life, the Foundation Wunderlampe creates a moment of joy with a wonderful unforgettable experience.

A heart's desire comes true: As individual as the fate of every single child, the Foundation Wunderlampe takes care of the fulfillment of every single wish in the experience area personally and full of empathy.

Thanks to our dear guests we collected CHF 7,000.00 to the benefit of the Foundation Wunderlampe!

KinderSPITEX Schweiz - Projekt Hängematte

Um die ganze Familie zu unterstützen und einer Überforderung vorzubeugen, bietet die Hängematte Erholungsplätze für behinderte oder kranke Säuglinge und Kinder an. Dank dieser Entlastung erhalten die Eltern und Geschwister die dringend notwendigen Freiräume zum Schöpfen neuer Energie, um sich gestärkt wieder dem Kind widmen zu können.

Mit unserem aktuellen Nooch Special "Asian Fusion Tacos" unterstützen wir das ProjektHängematte. Mit jedem verkauften Gericht spenden wir 50 Rappen ohne Umwege an die bedürftigen Familien. Du hast auch die Möglichkeit den Familien direkt über unsere Homepage zu helfen. Wir danken dir für deine Unterstützung.

Tabea's Delphintraum

On May 9, 1998, Tabea was born. After a severe pregnancy poisoning, she had to be "fetched" in the 31st week by caesarean. Tabea was 39 cm long and had a weight of only 1130 grams. Especially during her first weeks and months she had to deal with various health risks and problems.

Tabea now has the chance to get another therapy spot on Curacao. The only problem is the financing! A dolphin therapy takes 2 weeks and costs currently approx. 14'400 CHF. We help to realize Tabea's dream. With every sold Jubilee Roll for the 10th anniversary of Negishi Sushi Bar to 8 pcs. we donate CHF 2.-, with 4 pcs. CHF 1.- without detours to Tabea.
