Financial report 2020

We are quite big for a small organization, we often say jokingly 😀

  • An international network of more than thirty countries,
  • a prominent place in our own town thanks to Twinkeltje and De Schor,
  • a steady group of loyal supporters and
  • more than half a million euro given away to good causes since we founded Traveling Light 10 years ago.

Our treasurer Martin de Haas has made up the financial report over 2020 and it turns out that in 2020, despite the current global crisis, we received almost 78,000 euro in donations from all of you and we were able to distribute all this over dozens of projects throughout Europe. A wonderful result for which we are very grateful!

As you can see, we are not using the gifts for anything else than the announced projects. Whatever comes in is also given away, so you can always be sure that your donations will actually arrive at their destination. A short annual report will soon be available on our website.

👉The projects we support almost always have to do with offering help and hope to the poor, the homeless, the addicted, the prostitutes, the children, the prisoners, and the lonely.

At this moment donations are coming in for the purchase of a Teen Challenge women's home in Ukraine. Great to see this enthusiasm, despite the fact that will not have an ice skating fundraiser event this year.

In Twinkeltje and De Schor, the January proceeds will go to Brian Slater's work in Netanya, Israel.

With his organization Abundant Bread of Salvation, he cares for the elderly, the poor, Holocaust survivors, and single mothers. It is of course always possible to give a specified donation for this. We will make sure it gets there.

All donations, large and small, for all our projects are always welcome and can be directed at St. Traveling Light in Papendrecht, IBAN: NL91RABO0118582275 BIC: RABONL2U., stating the country or project you want to support.
