If a loved one is surprisingly torn out of the middle of life, nothing is the same as it once was. Mourning, guilt, reproaches, and never-ending pain determine our days, months, often years or a whole life. It does not matter whether we have lost these people through an accident, sudden illness, suicide or a crime. Many of the surviving dependent lose control of their lives, or even any further courage to live. Like in my case, when a suicide has torn my world into millions of pieces and I did not want to continue my own life.
A similar fate, I share with seven million people all over the world, who are directly affected by a suicide each year, year after year.
That´s why I will plant trees of memory for the people who left us
and those who left behind,
75 000 km around the world, connecting more than 60 countries. My goal is to create a prominent monument for those we loved. But it will be also a symbol for people who are yearning for death. I will prove with this, that each of us can accomplish incredible things, even in the darkest hours of life.
31 trees in 12 countries - Receive your tree now and become part of this very special community
With this circle of growing, flowering trees around the
earth, symbols for love, strength, beauty and
the infinity of life, I'd like
courage to live
lack of perspective and loneliness worldwide
Having a fulfilled and happy life is possible: if you follow yourself, you will always have the power over your life.
It will show itself to you in all its splendor, even if you are stuck for such a long time that seems forever.
With Footpath of Life I will prove that everything is possible.
and the support from people like you, who are like me and who believes, that it is worth fighting for life. I can hike alone,
I can plant trees alone, but I cannot raise the funds for the necessary technical equipment, the trees and everything which is needed to make it possible.
I want you to know how I will use your donation.
Footpath of Life will be 100% transparent and publicly accountable.
Each tree stands:
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.
The cost for such a tree, which will contain the tree, a small nice ceremony around the planting, the shooting and editing of a video I will do with the family and friends to honor the deceased, the plaque and everything which is neccessary to make it possible, like negotiations with the community for a little place to plant it & more, plus some left overs for the active suicide prevention, will be 500 Euro.
Even with a small amount you can help to realize the planting of the second tree,
as just 69 Euros are missing and you will become a godfather of the tree. And way more important: You will support with this powerfull sign those, who are struggeling in life and showing them: we believe in you and it is worth fighting - everymoment.

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.
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.
