HELP RAISE 25.000€ FOR 2016

Dear vaisnavas, I would like to thank from the depth of my heart all the many devotees that contributed to the 2015 event. We managed to collect practically 12.000€ which tremendously helped the festival. In fact, Krsna so kindly arranged that we finish once more with a positive figure, this time of around 2000€, which will be used as base for the next year's event.

My vision and desire for 2016 is to continue to have the majority of the festival sponsored (prasadam and all costs for organizing the festival) as the 2012–2015 Mellows were concluded in a positive way. By rough estimation this would mean that we would require to collect over 6200€ for prasadam bhoga so that devotees can eat for free (SPONSORED since the 26st of January), 700€ for the heating of the tent, + 1500€ for nice plates,cups, bowls and spoons, and another +17.000€ for all the costs that would ensue from the organizational side. The details are provided here above.

I hope that this will become possible with the help of all those who can. Even a euro makes a difference… So please donate for an even better and more memorable festival in 2016 (I don't know how its becoming possible as the festivals are already so ecstatic)! You can do so by Paypal or by personal arrangement with Manu ( you can email me through the contact form of the website), or by donating to the festival account:
