Who Am I?

Who Am I? Was founded in 2017 by Christopher Woodward and Emilie Travers who are both acting as advocates for dementia. They organise a variety of fundraising activities and awareness evenings in order to raise money for the charity Dementia UK and bring about awareness of dementia.

Spreadshirt supported the two with t-shirts so that they are properly equipped for their fundraising activities. One of their events are coffee mornings where people can come along and chat to share their stories. Chris sand Emily help people by giving them valuable information and important phone numbers should they need any help. The two friends volunteered to set up this group and they have a lot of passion but nevertheless they are always looking for people to help and join in with their projects.

The internet and social networks offer us the possibility to create, publish, distribute and consume media content, fostering a space of participation, engagement and self-expression. At the same time, social networks are increasingly prone to produce hate speech and human rights violations. The No Hate Speech Movement aims at raising awareness for this issue, but also supports targeted individuals and offers help to counter hate speech online.

Women for Coding

Django Girls Leipzig is a branch of the worldwide Django Girls initiative. It’s devoted to introducing women without prior experience in coding to the world of IT while increasing gender diversity. Modern technology is for everybody, so it’s only logically consistent that everybody should be able to create it. That’s why Django Girls want to give women an opportunity to learn how to code and build websites.

Tajik Rallye – One of the last big Adventures

Imagine you get yourself a car that your grandmother would have driven back in her day, pimp it with rally stripes (for extra power!), pack three pairs of pants and five pair of socks, and then ask your best mate to join you – sounds a bit off kilter, right? Add a big desert, wild rivers without bridges and tricky mountain passes reaching altitudes of 15,000 feet and more to the mix, and it may turn out to be just the craziest thing you’ve ever done: the Tajik Rally adventure, one of the last big challenges the world holds in store for us.

Eat Pasta, Go Fasta!

The Mongol Rally is a globally recognized event. The annual pan-continental ride across Europe and Asia passes through towering mountains, bleak deserts and other forbidding terrains that most people would loath to have their car go through. Interestingly enough, some 300 teams embark on the 10,000-mile journey every year, and some never reach the distant destination at all. And they all take these exertions upon themselves for a charitable aim; well, and for the sake of adventure, of course!
