Mandy Capristo is, since 2008, ambassador for the children’s hospice. In this capacity she visited the children’s hospice Sterntaler, where the young children eagerly awaited her. Jacob (10 years old) got on with her especially well, had a wonderful exchange with her, a long conversation and lots of fun with a fun, humorous guest. It’s not every day you get to play with such a cool singer.
Mandy took a lot of time, many hours, to learn about every detail and about the background of the children’s hospice and its workings. There was nothing that didn’t interest her and in between her visits with the team she could not stop herself from playing guitar with the children, to play games with them and entertain them. Mandy insisted, particularly, that the media be excluded to focus entirely on the children. She was able to relate to the children on their level and take their hearts by storm.
The team was impressed by the natural ease with which Mandy was “one of us.”
Everyone was especially happy when she promised to come again and bring a home made cake with her that she would bake herself.
It was a wonderful day at Sterntaler.
