This year we DON'T participate in 'De Warmste Week' ( yearly solidarity action in Belgium)!
No, it's not possible.
Because the nonprofit NE(S)T, the organisation Choux de Bruxelles - artist collective want to support, only started in September and is therefore can not participate in 'De Warmste Week'. To be eligible you have to present your annual financial statements.
That's why we organise our own Warmest Month!
From November 15 'till December 21 we sell the Ik en den Theo / Moi et le Théo albums at the reduced price of €10. The €5 profit per album sold will go to NE(S)T.
To support them, buy the albums through our online shop (physical) or via Bandcamp (physical and/or digital).
NE(S)T arises from journalist Saskia Van Nieuwenhove's activities. For several years we have been following her efforts in the domain of youthcare. Every now and then we transfered a small amount on her personal bank account, sometimes we engaged our network to help solve the crises occuring in the lives of the young people that crossed Saskia's path.
In all those years we never doubted for a single second if the money got into the right hands. It was clear that this situation wasn't sustainable in the long run. Therefor we are very happy that Saskia's friends, together with experts in human trafficing founded the nonprofit NE(S)T.
NE(S)T's main focus is the shelter and guidance of minors and adults that became victims of human trafficking (teenagerpimps) in Saskia's home (with approval of the juvenile judge).
They also try to communicate towards the policy makers and share their experiences in the hopes that the system will become better adjusted to these issues.
NE(S)T also engages other specialised organisations, such as Childfocus and Payoke.
Apart from volunteers to support their activities, day/night shelter and practical and administrative guidance they mostly need funds to pay for the shelter of these young people.
