German Charity MISEREOR Creates Realistic “Afrika Kicker” Foosball Game

MISEREOR - Afrika Kicker

Hamburg-based agency Kolle Rebbe has created an interactive donation box in the form of a foosball table for German charity MISEREOR, with the 2 euro donations going to benefit the children of Rwanda and South Africa.

But Afrika Kicker is not a typical Foosball table, with smooth uncluttered playing surface. Players challenge each other on a bumpy clay surface, and must negotiate obstacles like a tree and well hole, just like in some real African football matches.

Players can broadcast their Afrika Kicker match via a Livestream, or just keep their Facebook friends updated with the score.

In February, Helbig released a new collection of compositions. Entitled “Pocket Symphonies“, the collection features twelve short pieces for orchestra and piano quartet inspired by the melodies found in film music.

To promote the album Hamburg-based agency Kolle Rebbe created ‘Rebirth, a dramatic one minute long short firm directed by Kai Schonrath for CZAR Berlin.

Four of the tracks from ‘Pocket Symphonies’ can be found on Helbig’s Soundcloud channel.
