The Open Hof, a church in Maarssen (Netherlands) organizes a bazar every year. In general 50% of the revenues goes to the church and 50% to charities. The AllKidsShouldPlay foundation was nominated this year as one of the goals. After the bazar ended on Saturday 23 March, treasurer Bouwe Hofstee received a check for € 1,850. This amount will be spent on the construction of a private space for the foundation in Mambo. Thank you Open Hof!!
