Help us to raise funds for Close The Gap

Hi all,

On 31 May, the YPDP will be participating in the 20k Brussels Run to raise money for non-profit organistion “Close the Gap“. Although it might be a challenge for some of us to complete this race, we will be especially motivated by the excitement of knowing that it will benefit such a worthy cause.

Now, we are asking you, your colleagues, employers, or friends to consider donating money for this event. We have two ambitious goals: First that all of us complete the race and second to raise as much money as possible.

We would greatly appreciate your consideration by making a donation. All donations go directly to Close The Gap. Donating is very easy. Just check out our eventbrite donation page. Feel free to tweet and share the link and promote our cause.

More information about our fundraising project can be found at their website

Many thanks!

Fundraising for “Close the Gap”

We will take this opportunity to run a fundraising campaign for Close the Gap, an international non-profit organisation that aims to bridge the digital divide by offering high-quality, pre-owned computers donated by large and medium-sized corporations or public organisations to educational, medical, entrepreneurial and social projects in developing and emerging countries. We will share with you the links to the donation page in due time so you can promote it among your friends and family.
