Use of your donation

How I will use your donation?






First a brief summary of the project


Footpath of Life (FoL) will be a 75 000 km long path around the earth, lined with the trees of memory.

Trees that I will plant for people, who have taken their lives (not exclusively).

A project that aims long-term suicide prevention goals and – my hope – will be encouraging.


Each tree stands:

  • For a human who is no longer among us
  • For someone who stayed behind
  • For their relationship
  • And as a sign of hope, beauty, strength and the feasible, for people who do not believe in any perspective.


All these trees will stand on a ring around the earth. A self-contained path that symbolizes the cycle and infinity of life.

A worldwide visible symbol of the beauty and the power of life and a memorial of special people and relationships. A sign which will show: everything is possible and achievable - even if you cannot see it at the moment and even if you are surrounded by terrible darkness.




How I will use your donation and what are the goals of FoL:


With Footpath of Life, I would like to support suicide prevention in the long term. In the foreground:


  • To provide emergency assistance, for example, in case of massive suicide thoughts or after a suicide. To allow financially psychotherapeutic assistance if this cannot be made possible by state measures.
  • Support scientific and medical facilities that deal with suicide research and prevention.
  • financially support of Organizations who operate an active suicide prevention
  • Provide workshops for journalists so that future press articles can deal responsibly with suicide reporting and possible reduce the number of counterfeits due to press articles
  • To make Suicide hotspots safer & financially enable precautionary measures - where the state sees no need, because the topic does not interest him or the State does not want to assume responsibility.
  • Conduct workshops in schools, dealing with depression and suicidal thoughts. Presentation of warnings for teachers & students. Advice on how to help friends and what kind of behavior can lead to disasters.
  • Publicly organized workshops with the same topics as in the schools
  • Create lasting experiences for individuals to help them to discover a new meaning in life and helping them to go their new path.
  • Inviting people to walk with me for some weeks, so they can experience that there is a future, there is something new and that there is somebody who wants to pass on the light.


The Footpath of Life-project, in addition to its symbolic and psychological statement, has the task to ensure that the topic of suicide prevention and its need is perceived in the social networks as well as in the press.


So if I want to raise funds for the long-term suicide prevention goals, my vision and idea has to work out. The 31 trees, wished by now in 12 countries, 20,000 followers and a total of over 80 invitations from all over the world and the first financed trees show, that it is working and the only thing I need to do: start walking and planting.


I am a journalist and online marketer and I will push public awareness wherever I can. The success of Footpath of Life will form the basis for all future activities. Therefore, until the start of the project, all grants will be invested in the implementation, organization and development of Footpath of Life. This includes:


  • Acquire the necessary technology to be able to report daily online and to keep in contact with interested uers, affected parties, media representatives and to create the weekly video documentation. (These will generate revenue after a certain time, which will then, flow into the Foundation).
  • financing trees
  • Ensuring communication costs (mobile phone & internet contract) if I should not find a sponsor.
  • Producing sponsoring brochures and material I need for workshops



I draw the consequences of my personal history


During the time without the state stamp "official foundation or organisation", you don´t have another chance than to trust me on the basis of my word and evidences I will publish. Please measure myself by my intentions, deeds, statements, and listed revenue / expenses. I invite you to get to know my story, my thoughts, my loss and my hopes, and to create your own picture of it. I invite you to get in touch with me personally, to get to know me or to ask people who known me for many years.


I cannot do more than going public and be faithful to myself and draw the consequences of my personal history. I do this with Footpath of Life. If there are things that could help you to build trust in the project and in me, then please let me know and I will do my best.


If I can not reach you anyway, then the both of us must accept it. But of course I would prefer, if you will give FoL a chance.

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart if you do so, with the promise that everything I will do, will be in the sense of suicide prevention and the formulated goals. I have no other and I do not want to give my life any other alternative. Therefore you have my word.

thank you very much

Above on this site you will find all the social networks I am in. It will be a major help if you connect with me in those networks.


I will use them to document my walk around the world. On youtube you will find weekly video documentations. On flicker I will do the daily photo documentary. The best pic of the day you will find on instagram and much more. Where I will write about the adventures is not sure yet.


If you don´t have any of those, order my newsletter and you will be informed to.

Please help with your friendship and sharings.


Thank you so much.


Who or what am I?

In any case, crazy enough to devote my life to a task that has become much more important to me than my home, my scooter and my garden. It is my life task, because a suicide kills us all in one way or another.
