“Volunteering Campaign – No matter what you can do, you can help”
Without volunteering, civil protection in Germany would be unthinkable: ORCA Affairs and ORCA Campaign have been drawing attention to this on behalf of the Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance (BBK) since June 2021 – with the help of the nationwide campaign “No matter what you can do, you can help.”
In addition to the goal of giving a face to the diversity of volunteering in Germany, the campaign aims to inspire more volunteers to take on the variety of different tasks of civil protection. The campaign’s key message is that anyone and everyone can help with their skills.
Special attention is paid to those people who have been underrepresented in civil protection up to now: People with migration and refugee backgrounds, women, senior citizens, students, and people with mental or physical disabilities.
The campaign has already presented a wide variety of fields of activity and tasks in different content formats – for example, in the “Freiwillig busy” podcast with presenter and activist Luisa L’Audace or in the Follow Me Around format “Und Action” with influencers Ilka Brühl and Vreni Frost.
On the occasion of Volunteer Day on December 5, 2021, there was the campaign “Show us your volunteering!” in which volunteers sent in photos and videos of their involvement. Selected photos were published from December 3rd to 5th at subway, commuter and mainline stations throughout Germany, as well as on social media.
