Farmer Markus Wipperfürth has a vision: He wants to support the victims of the flood of the century. With a crazy eBay campaign he was able to donate 80,350 euros.
Markus Wipperfürth is one of the better-known faces of the countless flood helpers in the crisis areas. The volunteer has been helping the victims of the flood of the century with the clean-up work for weeks. In order to help not only physically, but also financially, he auctioned his gray-brown, worn work cap, which he wore day in and day out, on Ebay.
100 percent of the proceeds from the auction will go to the immediate aid of the Ahrweiler district. As soon as the cap and the crazy campaign went viral on Ebay, the offers shot up.
The online auction of the working cap came to an end on Monday evening and Markus Wipperfürth was able to record a proud result of 80,350 euros, the Kreiszeitung.de * reports.
