In the heart of Dortmund in 2002, Christian Vosseler and Marc Peine joined forces to establish “Kinderlachen,” an esteemed charitable organization recognized across regions. “Kinderlachen” has since become the steadfast advocate for children and teenagers, championing their rights and interests.
Today, Marc Peine and Christian Vosseler, the visionary founders, hold pivotal roles as members of the association’s executive board. Their unwavering commitment and unwavering determination drive them to translate the idea conceived in 2000 into impactful actions. Through an abundance of passion, wholehearted dedication, and a strong support system, they have propelled “Kinderlachen” to the forefront, positioning it as one of the largest organizations dedicated to assisting children in the German-speaking world.
The annual “Kinderlachen Gala” serves as a remarkable fundraising event that recognizes and celebrates the philanthropic efforts of celebrities. This extravagant gala features a high-stakes auction, showcasing exclusive items that are typically unattainable through regular purchase.

Over the years, the “Kinderlachen Gala” has evolved into one of Germany’s most prominent charity events, attracting around 1,000 guests annually. Each year, this grand evening has been raises approximately €500,000 in support of our cause. In recent years the amount has exceeded €1,000,000. At the annual Gala in 2022 it surpassed €1,200,000.
