Solidarity products vending machines
Solidarity products vending machines displayed throughout Berlin.


The idea is to display throughout Berlin vending machines that will dispense solidarity products. The money collected by them will be given to the social integration organizations that work in Berlin involved in the project. The Berliner Sparkasse would have previously got in touch with those organizations.

The idea will contribute to the social commitment of the Sparkasse, will help the organizations involved in raising funds and also will provide a channel to sell the products some of these organizations make.
