Kick-off South-America tour
On Saturday 12th April 2014 we had a kick-off meeting for our 3th leg of our World tour; South-America.
We were invited by Stijnus Schotte to have this kick-off in his beautiful museum “De Autostal”. www.autostal.nl.
Dirk and Stijnus know each other from their tour from Peking to Paris in 2007, where they met in St.Petersburg in Russia.
All the crews of the Land Rover and some sponsors were invited for this meeting. The kick-off started with a delicious South-American welcome drink.
Robert Kuiper, one of the crew of this year, gave an explanation of the tour through South-America.
Adri Hoogland, one of our sponsors, gave a cheque of 5000 Euro to Dirk to support the worldwide work of SOS-Children’s villages. www.sos-childrensvillages.org.
In the name of our foundation Dirk say a word of thanks and gave an Edam Cheese to Nico Broers, the president of our foundation, for his support for the last 3 years.
Lianne Otten and her dancing partner Pascal gave a beautiful South-American dance-show.
This day was a temperamental kick-off of our South-America tour, that will start at the end of May in Cartagena, Colombia. We hope you will follow our world tour and that you will support the goal of this tour by making a donation via our donate page on our website. In that way you will support the worldwide work of SOS-Children’s villages; giving a lovely home for orphan children.
Thanks, Dirk & Trudy Regter
