Let’s team up to make a change for kids in need!
Who we are:
Carmen and Bea; two German girls who decided it was time to “start moving” back in late 2012. That is why we came up with “Action For S4K!”.
How to get in touch? Just send us an Email 🙂 ActionForS4K@gmail.com
We support an amazing little charity called Sanctuary for Kids!
Our aim: On this website, we will try to keep you updated on our #S4K fundraisers, our personal happenings, our travels and challenges on a regular basis! Oh, and we will also inform you about other projects that we find interesting and worth supporting.
Can YOU get involved? Yes, please! We are always on the lookout for new friends to join our team or other groups to team up with! And of course for new and crazy ideas, that we can perhaps turn into a new, exciting fundraiser!

The reasons that started us to finally “move”?
We are TERRIBLY LAZY! Training on a regular basis asks lot of us 😉 Plus we felt it was about time to start doing some good!
(1) My (Bea’s) Dad, who always thought of others before thinking of himself! I love you Dad; you’re my true Guardian Angel & I hope you are cheering for me from above 😉
(2) Our wonderful friends! We love each and everyone of you! Thanks for all your love, support and for keeping up with our crazy ideas!
(3) Joke for letting us copy a lot from her page “Rainbow Run for Mila”

(5) Amanda Tapping for using her influence to make this world a better place!
Why we support “Sanctuary for Kids”?
Working in TV myself (Bea), we got hooked on S4K, which is strongly connected to one of our favourite TV-shows “Sanctuary” and besides:
We do admire their work and are hugely inspired by their efforts to make changes in this world!
