Anna and Erwin Foundation goes live

Opera's "it couple" Anna Netrebko and Erwin Schrott, who have started their own foundation to support children, have just announced that the foundation's website is now live.

For those who missed it... last month, Christoph Hillenbrand, District President of Upper Bavaria, handed the deed of foundation to the superstars and added his words of gratitude: “Thanks to your work, you will outlive all of us.”

With Foundation Managers Michael van Almsick and Albert Luppart being present, Anna Netrebko and Erwin Schrott spoke about their motivation:
A dream has come true for us ... We have wanted to help all of our lives. At some point we said to ourselves: Let’s do something serious. Of course, our popularity gives us the opportunity to make use of it for children in need of help.
The Anna and Erwin Foundation – Anna Netrebko and Erwin Schrott for Kids starts with an endowment capital of € 50 000, coming from both artists’ private funds.

The first projects to be aided will be the SOS Children’s Villages International, a children’s hospital in St. Petersburg, the Austrian foundation “Unser Kind” as well as the Spanish foundation avapace.
