Although it’s not Thursday, I’m going back in time to share a video with you guys that put a smile on my face.

 On Friday, March 28th, 2014, the fourth edition of Emma's Amazing Fun (d) Raising Night took place in the Gashouder in Amsterdam. By dint of a very successful auction and generous spending by the attendance, the Foundation managed to raise the charitable amount of € 465,800, -.

The entire proceeds of the auction was donated to the Emma Children to realize the project 'metamorphosis'.    
The 19 extraordinary auction items included; seating cards for the Chanel show in Paris, tickets to the World Cup Football Match: Netherlands - Spain, a haute couture dress by Dutch fashion designer Jan Taminiau and extra special training for the marathon in New York by the famous personal trainer Radmilo Soda.

After the auction singer Robin S surprised the generous guests with her appositely worldwide hit; "Show Me Love".

With € 1,541,900, - on the counter Foundation Embrace Emma will organize next year's final edition to hopefully raise at least € 458,100, - to reach the desired total amount of 2 million euros, the amount needed to realize 'metamorphosis'.

The purpose of the Emma’s Children hospital for seriously ill patients is to offer, in addition to the best care, to provide an as normal as possible environment such as facilities for parents, friends and family, which cannot be funded by the government.

Though often we’re caught up in our own hectic lives, it’s always nice to stand still to people less privileged then we are. I hope that with this year’s edition the hospital will have enough money to realize this extraordinary and heartwarming cause.
