We are proud to present you the two charities of the RAGweek 2019:
National: Villa Pardoes
Villa Pardoes (October 2000) is an initiative that was set up to enable parents and sick children to have a holiday week, which makes the family forget the illness or condition of the child as much as possible. Children can be children again, parents can relax and possibly share experiences with fellow-sufferers. In Villa Pardoes, adventures are experienced together, with family and friends. Villa Pardoes is , for a week, the warm nest where you come home after a day full of fun activities.
Villa Pardoes exists thanks to the efforts of a large number of volunteers, employees and sponsors who find it important that seriously ill children also have an unforgettable holiday.
International: Plastic Soup Foundation
The Plastic Soup Foundation was established in February 2011, with the intention to prevent as much unnecessary plastic use as possible. This organization works according to a fixed approach with the following spearheads: Be Aware (increased awareness about problematic plastic use), Get Educated (development of educational programs and increase of information dissemination) and Find Solutions (finding possibilities to make the plastic soup disappear as much as possible).
This year the RAGweek will take place for the 12th time from february 20 to 27. The money that we will raise together will be donated to the two charities.
