NL= Nederland/Netherlands

DOET = DOES,NL-DOES,as in we don't talk,we act.

Suppose it was changed to make it sound more dutch instead of using english so it appeals to more people.

Thanks lucien, that's what I thought it meant (the gist of NL Doet anyway).

So it was actually known as "Make a Difference Day" in the Netherlands? I always assumed that was just an English translation used for TRF. I can understand why they would want a Dutch name!

But it starts the 19th and finishes the 21st.
I, for example, will have a task on Sunday.

The Royal Family will be out and about as a whole today,the whole Family will "pop-up" somewhere in the country
in a short while for some al fresco volunteer work.Thank goodness the weather gods are with us all today.

Reason for the Family to work as a whole today instead of members flocking all over the country is HM's Jubilee year,
the 30th year of Her Reign.

HM,TRH The Prince of Orange,Princess Máxima,Prince Constantijn,Princess Laurentien,TH Prince Maurits,Prince Marilène,
Prince Bernhard,Princess Annette,Prince Floris and Princess Aimée have painted and/or repaired a playground in Nieuwegein.

The whole family had a lot of fun,all eleven of them,with paintbrush,hammer,drillmachine all of that.HM was "send off" by Constantijn to do a wallpainting

It is due to HM's jubille year that they decided to tackle one job with the whole family.

I loved seeing them all together, but I couldn't help but notice that Prince Pieter-Christiaan and Princess Anita weren't there. Does anyone know why they weren't with the family?

There is no mention of Prince Pieter-Christiaan and Princess Anita.

Funny report by dear hja.

HM and Princess Annette got a scheme as to which colours the faded mural should have.
The Queen however had her very own ideas on what is natural and not,and painted
it differently and improving the whole thing in the process.
HM is,as you all know,an accomplished artist herself.

NL Doet 2011; March 18th-19th, 2011 (Formerly 'Make A Difference Day')

The NL Doet event will take place in the weekend of March 18th and 19th 2011.

Members of the Royal Family will tradionally participate in several events/happenings/work to do and by doing so emphasizing the importance of volunteers in many fields and organisations.In a relatively small country like ours here,out of 16.5 million people,3 million do a voluntary job somehow which ofcourse is a huge amount,but more are needed still.See if you all can squeeze in an extra few hours in your schedules,or maybe you can drop some other things from your schedules as they might turn out to be not all that important after all.Use your time wisely!
