Sorry, this entry is only available in German.
For years I regularly buy cheap goods from China at wish.com. I am often positively surprised. Of course you can’t expect top quality, but under the given circumstances, surprisingly good stuff often arrives in my mailbox.
In any case, I found this device in the Wish catalogue, entitled “Digital bluetooth Hearing Aid USB Rechargeable Sound Amplifier Deaf-aid Audiphone Behind Ear”, advertised in the picture as a wireless hearing amplifier.
This is promising, I thought, and ordered two of them. These things are not only supposed to amplify the ambient sound, as hearing aids should, but also connect wirelessly to the mobile phone via Bluetooth in order to listen to music or even make phone calls. They also have rechargeable batteries that can be charged via USB.
I decided to participate in the donation activity Movember. The name is a mix of Mustache, Men and November. The donation activity is collecting money for fighting typical male illnesses, such as prostate cancer and testicular cancer, as well as furthering psychological health and suicide prevention. A very good cause. Visit my donation page by reading the QR code or clicking the QR code image.
We stand for:
- Preventing suicide in men
Our fathers, brothers, sons and friends are dying by suicide, every minute of every day.
We won’t accept this. To make change happen, Movember views mental health through a male lens. We focus on early intervention, engaging men and working to their strengths. By 2030, we aim to reduce the rate of male suicide by 25%.
- Improving the quality of life
Men with prostate cancer and testicular cancer face an uphill battle before, during and after treatment. But with useful tools and straight-shooting advice, we aim to lighten their load so these men can live life to the fullest.
- Helping men take action
Globally, men die on average 6 years earlier than women, and for largely preventable reasons.
So we’re shining a light on the health risks men need to know about, increasing awareness to stop men dying too young.
- Teaming up with great minds
A crisis this size calls for big ideas from the brightest minds. Movember brings together the best researchers and experts from across the globe, reducing research overlap to maximise brainpower and accelerate progress.
Having an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.

Surround yourself with people,
in whose presence
You can strip your strength off,
like a shirt.
Knowing full well that
the nakedness of your soul
is well cared for
in their loving hands.
