“Tintin - Bras croisés” by Peppone
Peppone, alias Christophe Tixier, was born in 1971 in Montreal and now lives in France near Aix-en-Provence. A passionate collector of Tintin comics, his sculptures are created and decorated from original Tintin comics. This bust is a minimalist and very intimate piece. Indeed, Peppone has chosen to highlight the almost paternal relationship between Hergé and Tintin, his illegitimate son, to whom he gives life using his paintbrush. A homage to his father by creating works which convey values transmitted by his parents: the taste for adventure, but above all sharing.
Lifetime experience at The Alpina Gstaad
The Alpina Gstaad is delighted to offer a Swiss Red Cross Charity auction lot for a stay of two for two overnights in a Suite, including an adventurous ski day on Glacier 3000 with Swiss Snowboard champion Pat Burgener. Followed by a relaxing Dr. Burgener Six Senses Spa experience “Haute Couture” and an exclusive meet & greet with Dr. Pauline Burgener.
“Craig” by Griet van Malderen
A field principally dominated by men, it is rare to find a female photographer equipped with her cameras and lenses in the African bush! Consequently, Griet Van Malderen is the exception to the rule. This Belgian from Flanders did not follow any theoretical courses in photography. Her talent was born the day she first set foot in South Africa those many years ago.

Based in Geneva, Boghossian has built a reputation for creating audacious jewels that showcase gems in a new light.

A masterful display of artistry, crafted with impeccable skill and sophistication.

Swiss Red Cross Project for Moldova: Mobile healthcare vehicles and wheelchair accessible vans to transport the elderly
In Eastern Europe, many people of working age move to the city or abroad. Older people are left behind, many of them lonely and on their own. Pensions are barely sufficient for a dignified life and health care is often incomplete.
We help to establish home-based services in Armenia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Moldova. During the winter, the situation is even more complicated because the cold and snow often prevent the care teams from making their visits. Thanks to an equipped car, the elderly could continue to receive their treatments!
Swiss Red Cross Project: Hot meals for 120 people, everyday during Winter
In Eastern Europe and Central Asia, winters are often long and bitterly cold. Poverty-stricken elderly people and families with many children have to decide whether to spend their money on firewood for heating, warm clothes or food.
In Armenia and Moldova, we support soup kitchens that prepare warm meals and deliver them to people’s homes. Help povertystricken elderly people and families through the long winter.
