In April 2020, we donated a large amount of felt-tip pens to the asylum seekers' centers in the Netherlands. Last week we paid a visit to AZC Gilze. 900 refugees reside at this location. Many of them have to wait for years in these centers for a residence permit as the length of these procedures is often very long. The visit made a great impression on us. All the people we met have been waiting there for days, weeks, years for clarity. In the meantime, life stands still and there is no future...

Last March, we also supported the Spread a Smile foundation. Its mission is to brighten the days of seriously and terminally ill children and teenagers in hospital. This summer bags were filled with creative products and other toys to give the children in the hospitals some distraction. Thanks to the great cooperation with Royal Talens UK, this became a very nice and rewarding project to work on.

The Summer Fun Packages provide a little extra fun for children who live in poverty and experience little out of the ordinary during the summer vacation. There is no money. Sometimes not even for an ice cream. And that while the summers of their friends and neighborhood children are filled with fun things. That must change! That is why the "kinderhulp" Foundation came up with Summer Fun packages for the fourth year in a row. A bag full of nice things for the summer: a football, a reading book,...

Three years ago, Nellie...

The purpose of Drawing for Children is to cheer up children in hospitals by drawing with them. Artists volunteer to the hospitals throughout the country to work with the children on the edge of the bed. We have supported the work of Drawing for Children before because we find their work very special and useful. Last week we sent new materials to them in order to continue their beautiful work. These attached photos speak volumes.
