Frank Zander has been on stage for over 50 years, is a trained graphic artist and painter and is still officially considered the most successful German comedy singer of all time.
For 25 years he has been celebrating Christmas with up to 3000 homeless and needy people in the Hotel Estrel in Berlin. Besides the traditional goose dinner and live music, donations in kind in the form of warm clothes, sleeping bags, drinks or other useful things are distributed. Frank Zander spends a large part of the year looking for sponsors for this very special Christmas.
In cooperation with the Caritas Association for the Archdiocese of Berlin and the catering company Mama and Sons, another project was started this year. As a replacement for the Christmas celebration affected by Corona, the Caritas food truck now provides warm food for homeless and needy people within Berlin.
