Serious Request

Today at 19:00 three 3FM radioDj's are going to lock themselves in, in a glass house. They are going to DJ around the clock, WITHOUT EATING from dec 18th till dec 24th. They do this every year, working together with the Red Cross, to collect money for charity. This year the charity will be ''Stop Malaria''. Every 30 seconds a child dies of malaria....every year one million people die of this disease. So we have to do something to stop that!

At the serious request homepage you can get all the information about malaria, the glass house and how to donate.
  • You can request the DJ's to play a record for you, and donate any amount of money for that.
  • You can donate a package with different products you can shop for in the special donate section. For example: for 45 euros, 300 kids can be tested. For 6 euros, a basic hygienepackage. For 10 euros, a foodpackage. For 4 euros, they can test and 5 kids and give them medication. For 20 euros, you can donate medication for 20 people.For 120 euros you can give 5 people a tent to shelter against the rain and wind. And the list goes on and on.
  • You can start your own collection online or think of some other way to collect money.
  • You can buy the special poststamps, coca cola bottles, etc
  • You can buy something at the auction which always olds a lot of stuff donated by famous Dutchies AND internatiol artists.
  • Etc, etc, etc.
 You can also send a textmessage, which you can then see on the live tv streaming. You don't have to donate much to make a difference. Every cent counts.
So when you are shopping for christmass gifts, think about the other people in the world and make a donation.

The Dutch LushForum has opened a Donation Page aswell. So now you have lots of things to choose from if you want to donate.

Together we CAN make a difference!
