How a small country can be big

Up till this moment, at the end of a day of special dedicated radio and TV-shows, the people of the Netherlands have donated more than 112 million euro (147 million USD) to help the people in Asia!!! We have 16 million inhabitants, so that’s at least 10 euro per adult person. More money is expected, because today (Friday) a special single will be released and this weekend will be filled with benefits and concerts for Asia. I’m so happy that my doom scenario has proven to be wrong! Everyone – regardless of race or religion – tries to raise as much money as they can. Though it’s a bit sad that it took one of the worlds biggest tragedies to accomplish this, I really hope this feeling of solidarity stays for a long time…
