NIJMEGEN, The Netherlands — Every year, Shots Media hosts a party that closes out the company’s Sales Week event for retailers and manufacturers.
The Shots Media Party was situated at the finish line of the “Nijmegen Four Day Marches.” Rather than raise money for one charity, Shots Media this year established the Shots Charity Foundation with the idea to support various little and less known charities.
This year Shots, the party’s sponsors and the attendees raised € 14.029,40, which will be divided between three charities.
The first charity of choice, which receives one third of the donations, is called De Liedjesfabriek (The Song factory). It gives sick children a positive distraction through music and song writing. Apart from working in hospitals, De Liedjesfabriek wants to go and visit children who are being taken care of at home.
“To accomplish this they need a bus which will be converted into a mobile recording studio,” the company said. “With this bus they can take the children to their own school or club while writing and recording their own song during the trip. The other two charities of choice will be announced soon!”
