The Cirqle has partnered with the Red Cross and NOS to help launch the #NederlandhelptSintMaarten campaign.
On the 6th of September, the devastating Hurricane Irma ripped through the Caribbean and caused unimaginable damage, particularly on Sint Maarten. Up to 70% of the houses are badly damaged or destroyed, food and water is extremely limited, and despair is spreading. In order to help the victims, the Red Cross needs funds and has consequently organised together with NOS a national action-day on Friday 15th of September.
The Red Cross has invited us to further increase awareness for the event, and to help amplify its impact. Naturally we offered to put all our resources to help this cause, and encouraged our entire community of Dutch influencers to share information about the event and mobilise their followers to take ACTION. In addition, some of our influencers will be showing their support on-site by visiting the event in Hilversum.
The event will be broadcasted on radio and television and will take place at the Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid in Hilversum. It's aim is to inform Dutch citizens about the urgency of the situation and raise as much money as possible via Giro 5125.
We hope that this cause is as important to you as it is to us and we encourage you to take action in any way that you can.
