Time is running
What exactly is “Push-Ups 4 Charity – one million reasons”?
A year. 1 million enthusiastic people. And only 1,-€ per person who is donated to reach our goal: to collect 1 million Euro donations.
Where should they go?
At the end of this project 100% of the money will be invested in 10 projects. Two of these 10 projects are given by the initiator:
And the remaining 8 projects?
They come from you! From the community.
You are allowed to nominate, apply and vote for the projects!

Who is the community? And how do I become a part of it?
If you participate in the overall project within the campaign period by actively participating and supporting it, you will be accepted into the “PU4C – One Million Reasons” community and will be entitled to vote and make recommendations.
Through your personal recommendations of social projects you have the opportunity to nominate a social project of your choice to receive 1/10 of the total amount donated as support at the end of the project period. Of course, you can also vote for your project at the end of the period – or choose one of the other nominated projects.
Donations & Support
Well – what can I say… the name of the project already says it:
It’s a charity project.
You are part of the project as a donor. Everybody has a say.
100% of all donations are distributed to social projects.
So quite horny.
BUT ONE STAY: The project can only be successful if we reach as many people as possible to get involved with mini donations.
So we need EVERYONE of you!
YES – We also need YOU!!!
And double that:
1x as a member of the donation or support community, i.e. that you transfer an amount chosen by you. The best way to do this is to play a “nomination game” in 3 simple steps:
1.) You “nominate” as many friends and acquaintances as you want via the social media channels (and especially those you know will participate!!).
2.) Each nominee will record a 30-second video in which they make as many push-ups (alternatively, other sports activities, such as squads, go) as they can. For each completed push-up you “pay” the nominee an amount of your own choice (e.g. 1,-€/push-up for rather unsportsmanlike people, more like 10 cents for sports cannons) which you sponsor in favor of “Push-Ups 4 Charity”.
IMPORTANT: The video then posts the sports cannon on the corresponding channels with the hashtag #Pushups4charity and the link to the website.
3.) Finally, the sports cannon can nominate other people itself. In addition it can suggest social projects in the FB group and make sure that these are voted into the winner pot.
Apart from the donations (100% into the projects – I can’t say it often enough!!) we are happy about “supporters”: Every form of donation which is marked as “support for the project” helps us to carry such a project through the whole year! We show our gratitude!!
Or you would like to organize a sports day in your company or your environment and would like Malte to do his push-ups together with you?

1.000.000 enthusiastic people supporting the project and 1.000.000 push-ups also mean:
2,740 people / day to reach and inspire
2.740 push-ups / day to make
… Puhhh – that’s quite a lot! And in order to be able to accomplish this quantity, one of the ideas is that I simply do the push-ups EVERYWHERE – in the train, in the office, on vacation, in the airplane, at the motorway service area, under the Christmas tree, etc.
But not only where I am anyway, but as often as possible in places where I can reach many people:
- before festivals and other music and art events
- at sights
- at universities and in companies
- in sports clubs and at sports events
- in unusual places – etc.
What do you mean? What do you think? Which additional challenge would you like to give me or what can I do to get you to support the action yourself?
You suggest – I lead. Be creative. Use me ☺ (this can also be misunderstood 😀 … you know what I mean). Let me know where you’d like to see, where I do my day units and maybe even support you with them?
I am looking forward to your feedback and suggestions!
Until then I will use the first 3 weeks of my vacation to start the project – and just because I’m on vacation doesn’t mean that I’m “push-up free” – Mecklenburg Lake District, USA/Miami & Mexico are the first stops where I’ll be at exciting places.
When do we meet where?
Questions & Answers
How does the nomination and the choice of social projects proceed?
Nominations are made via the Facebook platform in a closed group specially set up for this purpose, to which only members who are actively involved in shaping the success of the overall project are admitted.
All proposals submitted by members of this group in the respective calendar month will be submitted at the end of each month to vote for the community. This votes then in a voting round, which is accomplished on the last 5 days of the respective month (on-line vote) over it. The two projects with the most votes go into a winner pool. From this “winner pool” the 8 projects will be determined at the end of the year, which will each receive 1/10 of the total donation amount.
What does “active participation” mean?
In principle, everyone has the opportunity to become an active co-designer through a “nomination process”. This idea envisages the following 3 steps:
1.) Become nominated (or nominate someone yourself) to participate in “PU4C” by doing so many push-ups within 45 seconds and have yourself filmed (also in cool places, because you always have your body with you 😉).
The nominee assures the nominee to donate a certain amount XY to the project “PU4C” – e.g. per completed push-up 1,-€ or a lump sum of a freely chosen amount (at least 1,-€, at PayPal at least 1,40€ (the 40 Cent receives the needy company PayPal 😁 – and after the task is completed the nominator is invited to keep his promise).
2.) Post and share the video on your channels with the #PushUps4Charity and link the homepage “pushups4charity.de”
3.) Now nominate people yourself, who you think would like and enjoy to carry on the idea of “PU4C” and contribute to the overall success – and have the chance to push their own project.
Otherwise, the team around “PU4C” will of course include all other supporters in the community on request – if push-ups are not possible due to health reasons, we will find another solution if you want to become part of this community. Write us gladly to ☺
