Kites for charity

2023 | WOŚP Hexagon kite

In January 2023, we auctioned a hexagon kite created by Alicja together with a wooden winder made by Milosz. This time to raise funds for the medical equipment for early diagnosis of the bacterial infection that causes sepsis, which is deeply needed in Poland. We raised €400.

The happy winner of 2023 auction is Malcolm from New Zealand. The kite was delivered to Cervia, Italy, where kite lovers meet every year for an Artevento kite festival. 

2022 | WOŚP Eddy kite

For the second year in a row, we supported the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity (WOŚP).

This time Alicja created two kites with the colourful eyes motif of this year's fundraiser. In addition to the kites, our friend Milosz Rene Lam crafted wooden line winders with WOŚP logo. Together they raised €390. The money from the 2022 fundraiser went towards equipment for children’s ophthalmology.

2021 | WOŚP Eddy kite

This colourful kite was created exclusively for the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity (WOŚP) auction organised by the collection center of Eindhoven. The kite raised €170.

WOŚP is the greatest Polish charity event, which raises funds for specialist equipment for Polish children's hospitals.

2021 | Kites Fighting Cancer

Colibri bird goes on a winding road and gets out onto the kite's sail to fly high - a reference to the difficult road that cancer fighters have to take to recovery.

The kite raised $1000 for cancer research.

The project is a result of the first corona lockdown. Inspired by the global pandemic situation as well as my individual situation and the place I was lucky to be at the time.

2022 | Kites for Ukraine
Russia's attack on Ukraine has triggered in us, as in many people all over the world, the desire to help and also to express solidarity with the Ukrainian people and, above all, with our kite flying friends in Ukraine. Since the beginning of this cruel war, a lot of beautiful kites in colours of the Ukrainian flag have been created in various corners of the world, which are, on the one hand, an expression of solidarity and, on the other, an expression of the pain we are experiencing. This is how our solidarity chain was made. We created it together with Filip and Karolina, for whom this was also the first experience with kite building.

2020 | Paraglider flies again

Challenge: transform a paraglider into a kite train.

In 2018 I received a retired paraglider from a friend, After a two-year wait I started to work on the project, inspired by the Dieppe kite festival "The Earth in the spotlight" theme. Dieppe festival was moved to 2022, so after another 2 years the paraglider finally made it to the sky again! In a slightly different form... More about this project here.

2020 | Cards fly the world

How small should a scrap of fabric be to qualify for throwing away? That is a question I often ask myself when I build kites. And most scraps end up in the scrap box. What to do with the smallest ones? How about creating 70 unique greetings cards and sending them to friends all over the world? Yes!
