Fundraising in Finland

THANK YOU JENNI!!! for organising a great fund-raising event in Helsinki, Finland in order to help our kids.

The event took place in January 2011 and the money raised was split between three charities chosen by the organisers; Club Union de los Pibes in Argentina, Long Way Home in Guatemala ( and OCEAN Nepal/Ramro Shati orphanage in Nepal (

It's always amazing to see so many of our volunteers doing so much for the kids at the club, even when they are so far away! We cannot begin to express how much it means to us to know that when a volunteer leaves to go home, they carry with them a place in their hearts for each of the kids and the club.

Everyone at Club Union de los Pibes sends huge thanks to Jenni (who will be coming back to volunteer again in March), to her friends in Helsinki and all the wonderful people involved in making the event a success. In fact, Jenni says it was such a success that they hope to make it an annual event!

It was a great event, there were 7 Finnish rock bands playing! Great people all of them.

The event was held in a bar/restaurant called Villi Wäinö.

There was also an Instant Tattoo company selling instant tattoos.

All the profit from the event was also donated to the three different voluntary organizations.
