The Forgotten Child Foundation

The Forgotten Child Foundation opens trading on Valentine’s Day

The Forgotten Child Foundation (Stichting het Vergeten Kind) opens the Amsterdam exchange on Valentine’s Day, the day of love, and asks attention for the 100,000 children in the Netherlands who grow up in families with multiple problems that hardly receive any positive attention.

To support these children, the foundation calls on the Netherlands to warm these children with a kilometer-long support scarf of sweet messages, via their website, until 25 February. After the promotional period, the Forgotten Child Foundation hands them out, scarf by scarf, to vulnerable children in the Netherlands. Joep Verboeket, managing director: "By creating the longest support scarf, we want to ask the Netherlands to open her heart to vulnerable children. We emphasize that sincere attention can be found in small things. We can all do something for these children, so that they get what they are entitled to: a chance for a bright future. And the beauty is, at the end of the campaign the scarves are separated and donated to the children who need our support so badly. "
