Serious Request 2017

In December 2017 Serious Request took place in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands. Serious Request is a major fundraising event from a national radio station (Radio 538). Every year in the week before Xmas DJ’s are broadcasting 24/7 to raise money for a state of emergency in parts of the world we don't see much of. The Royal Talens Foundation organized several activities to support Serious Request 2017.
We organized a 12 hour drawing and painting marathon, we created a mural with students and a local artist, we raised money by selling special postcards designed by one of our Zentangle artists, there was a project with people who suffer from a brain injury and we made a 3D painting with artist Leon Keer.
 
The Royal Talens Foundation managed to raise an amount of 12,500 euros for Serious Request and the Red Cross.
