It began with the “Sommermärchen” during the FIFA World Cup 2006 in Germany. The Togo national team was based in Wangen im Allgäu. When they heard about Nourisson from Togo who was born with a cleft and urgently required an operation, the citizens of Wangen  began collecting money to help pay for the medical requirements.

And so began the great idea and story of BigShoe. BigShoe won the “World-Cup-Bambi 2006” Television Prize, awarded by Hubert Burda Media.

1242 children have succesfully helped with medical operations since 2006. Thanks to many football fans around the World the BigShoe will leave many more steps around the World and contiunes the story of the “Sommermärchen” for many more children…
