I'm the general secretary of the Dutch Base- and Softball Club Birds, located in Zoetermeer, the Netherlands (Europe) between the cities of Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
Birds (in short) also train young streetkids (14-17 year) to become a decent baseballplayer in order to give them the opportunity to choose for the right path to go in life (f.i. becoming a member of the sportclub). Ultimate goal is to reduce the number of crime in our area, like robberies, burglaries etc.
Well, since we do that, IKEA the Netherlands nominated Birds as a charity to win a clubhouse makeover, worth € 7500 ($ 10,000,=), For that, we need to have received the most votes of all 5 charities by fridaynight 11.59 pm.
Therefore, in a lot of ways we have already collected many votes during the last 3 weeks, but we really need more votes since we are now nr 2 and we hate losing from a bunch of scouts.
Are you willing to spend a minute and to please vote for our club ? You may vote with any emailaddress you have at Hjartawens, choose the last item (BIRDS) and click on the red box with "stem hier" (means vote here).
Then please enter your emailaddress and click on "verstuur", what means "send". Once you have send your emailaddress IKEA will send you an email asking to confirm this. Just do that and that's all.
You can enter as many emailaddresses you have.
It would be my pleasure to announce here saturday that your support have made us winning this makeover. In any way, thanks a lot. Ton
