Can you help to translate Living without money?

We are hoping to be able to translate and publish the German bestsellerbook "Das Sterntalerexperiment-Mein Leben ohne Geld" (Living without money) into the English language written by Heidemarie Schwermer.

I am Heidemaries daughter and am looking for financial support for this project. We (relatives and friends) want to share the idea and work of life from Heidemarie to give more people hope in this difficult time, where money became an issue.
Heidemarie Schwermer passed away in 2016 when she was 74 years old. She was a visionary and traveled all over the world to inspire people about the meaning of life and the whole system of money we are living in. In 1996 she gave all her posessions away and started an experiment for 1 year to live without any money. She started to trade everything to get food, a nice place to stay, tickets for her journies and fine clothes to wear. This project became a huge succes and therefore she never stopped to live like this for the next 20 years. She build up a big network and had a very rich life. She gave a lot of people inspiration and hope with her different thoughts  of living.   For the Italian translation of her book she even earned the Tiziano Terzani Peace-award in 2008.

One of her last wishes to us was to keep her ideas alive and share it, so that's why I decided to set up this foundation for the English translation. Are you into this and do you want to help to make this book possible, even it costs some money?  See for more information:

Every donator can buy the new book for the manufacture price. Just send us an email with your emailaddress if you want that.
