Tomorrow HRH Princess Máxima will close the door shut of the glass house containing three dj's participating for the 3FM Serious Request 2009 event.It';s an annual event that takes three days in which the three dj's don't eat in solidarity with the less priviliged.People think
of all kinds of ways to make money to donate to the 3FM serious request.The proceeds will go the Red Cross for the 6th subsequent year.Fantastic and inspirational initiative.Try and get something simular of the ground where you are!Request for music and bid on it,hold a garage sale and sent the proceeds to serious request,run and have each km sponsored,hold auctions,you think of something I'm sure

Last year it was hubby Alexander who closed the door of the glass house btw.

I like that fact that each person can decide how they will raise the funds instead of everyone doing the same thing. It sounds different. People can get real creative with it.

I think it a very creative fantastic suggestion.It's on auction on eBay and at present the the bid is over 3500 euro already and nine more days to go for auction.

The Princess also got three t-shirts for her girls with little musquito´s on them,
this year the money goes to Red Cross and the fight against malaria.Every 30 minutes
a child dies of malaria,what nonsense,what a unnessecary waste of life as a vaccination
only costs 80 eurocents and a musquitonet a bit over that.

You can go to the webshop and order items there if you like.Ofcourse you do....

Late this -saturday- afternoon the score already was over 250000 euro´s!!Within less then the first 24 hours!!Fantastic!!People really got creative,people cycling around the country,hello,it is -10 celsius with snow and freezing wind,but still they collect money criss cross through the country on their way to Groningen,a lady putting her delicious cakes and pastries up for auction at eBay,all kinds of things.Heartwarming.

On monday it already was over 750.000 euro's!

Máxima,ofcourse requested two records to be played too and donated for that.Her second choice was "Woman" by dutch singer Anouk,a rocky lady with tattoo's and raw texts but apparently a favorite of Máxima as she attended a concert by Anouk recently.Question by dj Giel Beelen;"Do you have tattoo's too?" had besides a negative answer a Máxima in stitches of laughter.

Good for them for raising so much money! That's a funny story lucien. Actually I could see Maxima getting a tattoo, discreetly of course.

It's nice to know that she likes Anouk. Her album is absolutely amazing.

I can see Maxima getting a tattoo- what would she get, her royal monogram? no, I dont think so either. Anouk was a good choice!
