HRH Princess Margriet,Vice-Chair of the Dutch Red Cross and former Chair of the IFRC,will probably appear
during the nationwide televised TV fundraising program for Haiti that will be aired live thursday evening.

HRH will appear live.

All hope is that millions more besides the 1.6 million till now will flow in.

All day long the combined commercial and national radio stations had an event to make people donate,
and that was a succes alltho we do not have an outcome of that program yet.

Tonight is the telethon for Haiti,the sum that is donated by midnight tonight,will be doubled by the
Dutch government.

Apparently she will also be awnsering telephone calls, from people who want to make donations. As is the prime minister, minister Koenders and Geert Wilders, leader of the fascist party.

Did you see the Princess?As a member of the team that takes calls from people that wish to donate.One of the presentors asked her how she introduced herself on the phone with all these people,she replied chuckling;"oh just by my name,but it doesn't bring about any reaction".

There was 10.6 million till today.Then today saw/heard the Haiti radio event.That alone raised another 8.6 million euro.The telethon started 2 hours ago and people donated a staggering 15 million euro more till now.Whatever is donated by midnight will be doubled by the dutch government.34 Million doubled to 68 million euro ($ 89.6 million) is an absolute fantastic sum till now.

The Princess spoke about that she was only able to get contact with the Haitian chair of the Red Cross,a friend of the Princess since both had worked together when the Princess was Chair of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Foundations and the Haitian was a member of the Board.The Princess said it was a very emotional moment,to be able to talk to eachother.

This Princess really is one of a kind,absolutely,the Royal with the warmest kindest heart anywhere,not that others are not,it is just that Princess "Sunshine" as her nickname is,is truly special she radiates it.

The end of the program the sum was revieled,over 41 million euro,that was doubled so there was 83.448.252 million euro.
Amazing,and moving.

I love that she's doing this - how neat! That's funny that most of the people who talk to her don't realize who she is - you have your only opportunity to talk to a Princess, and you don't even notice!

A survey to find out how many of each species are in a certain area.Has that certain bird diminished in numbers or did it increase.
To find out the how and why of the amount of birds,the species,do they need protecting in some kind,what can be done to prevent a specie from diminishing and why did it diminish,or did the number increase,in the first place.Just an annual survey on how many of each specie you see in your garden,on your balcony,terrace.

I believe the other men in picture 2 are count Hugo van Zuylen van Neijevelt and one of his sons (either Philip or Roderick, who both are involved in the family business).

Sadly I have never been to Duinrell as a child as my mother couldn't stand amusement parks, even though this one was 10 minutes away from where we lived.

And we are ever gratefull to them,the men of the 2nd Canadian Army Corps:

6th Armoured Regiment 1st Hussars
12th Armoured Regiment,Three Rivers regiment

The Royal Canadian Regiment
The Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment
The 48th Highlanders of Canada

Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry
The Seaforth Highlanders of Canada
The Loyal Edmonton Regiment

The Francophone Royal 22e Régiment
The Carlton and York Regiment
The West Nova Scotia Regiment

The city of Apeldoorn,residence of HRH Princess Margriet and Prof.mr.Pieter van Vollenhoven,
was liberated by the Canadian's and to this day the Canadian Veterans experience a home-coming
here and are so warmly welcomed that they say they never got a simular welcome in Canada.
