Initially I found it incredibly difficult to ask foundations and companies for financial support. Launching this website and the announcing of my chronic disease and my disability have equally not been easy for me. I have always been very independent and I have realized my dreams by myself. The idea of asking the public for money is still uncomfortable to me. But I didn't choose my situation! I am a happy, fun-loving person and I would like to stay that way! Increasingly though I feel isolated and dependent. Very often I feel sad and I spend most of my time alone in our apartment. My life is not over yet, which is why I have decided to make my request public. I am aware that there are people out there that are worse off than me. But pain and sorrow are very subjective and I don't want my bad physical condition to someday also destroy my happy, cheerful personality. People with disabilities have to fight for everything, yet they really could use that little, precious bit of energy to manage their everyday life. Every healthy person ought to be grateful for that fact! Maybe you could spare a few Euros and call your family's, friends', acquaintances', colleagues' and anybody else's attention to my website and my campaign for donations?!
Get to know me on my website or contact me, if you have questions, get information about the MMB e. V., ask the MMB about me and my case, to make sure that everything is “proper” and YOUR DONATION is invested well. Donations will be managed by the MMB. Every cent which is transferred to the donation account with the codeword "Perings", will be used at 100 % for my mobility, i.e. primarily for the financing of the adapted vehicle, but also for repairs, tires, inspections, etc. Hence not one cent will be lost!
The registered association "Mobil mit Behinderung e.V." (i.e. "Mobile with Disability") has checked my request and opened a free fundraising account on my behalf (see attached letter from MMB e.V. in German).
On www.mobil-mit-behinderung.de you can find out more about the association that supports people with disabilities with their mobility issues since 2001. For donations of € 100 upwards you can be provided with a receipt to use for tax purposes. This receipt is accepted by the German tax authorities. Please check acceptance of this receipt with your local tax authorities, if you live abroad. Therefore please always mention your name and address details (in addition to the codeword "Perings") on your bank transfer.
Every Euro counts, including yours! MANY THANKS!

After 7 years, with the help of numerous donations from good-hearted people, the financing of the convertible base vehicle could finally be realized! THANK YOU VERY MUCH to all donors and supporters! The used car has many of the functions prescribed and recommended by the TÜV, but the required, handicapped-accessible conversion still costs around € 40,000. I'm still in the front passenger seat, but a big milestone has been reached and I am confident about the future! Very soon I will definitely be behind the wheel with YOUR support / donation and I will be able to organize my everyday life independently. The donation account is still open! I am happy about every donation! Regardless of whether it is € 1, € 5, € 10, € 50, € 100… - EVERY DONATION helps! From 100 € the MMB e.V. will issue you a donation receipt. All donations are tax deductible!
