Wiener - Tafel Fund Drive
I was wandering around the streets of Wien, Austria near the Schwedenplatz U-Bahn station one day recently and a couple of young people who were working soliciting funds for this organization called Wiener-Tafel started talking to me.
My Deutsch is terrible and their English was pretty good, so from what I gathered Wiener-Tafel is some sort of humanitarian organization. The two young people indicated to me that one of the things that Wiener-Tafel does is salvage perfectly good food, and then they redistribute that to people who need food. Wiener-Tafel's website is at www dot wienertafel dot at. There should be more complete information about them there.
I ended up pledging 120 € to that organization over a one-year period after speaking with them, and I already paid 10 €.
Seems like a worthy cause, so I am trying to set up a GoFundMe campaign for Wiener-Tafel. I still have the brochure that was given to me, and their IBAN code and BIC code is on their pamphlet, so it should not be too difficult to get any contributions into their account. They even bank at the same bank as I do, and Erste Bank Group bank that looks like it has the same BIC number.
