Friday 03-06-2017 we decided to pop by the TV-Show “Lekker Laat.” The show is based on people popping by unannounced. Since we still need a lot of money before Pim can get treatment, it was about time we got some more exposure. Around 11 p.m. we drove to Artis (zoo). I must admit that we were somewhat nervous.
Once we arrived, the nerves increased somewhat for the both of us. We went up to the entrance where Gerda Gavertong (tv personality) greeted us. She was moved by Pim his story. After TV-host Paul de Leeuw had let some other people into the studio, we got his attention. Pim told his story beautifully. Unfortunately, We were not allowed to say the name of the website, according to them because it was not allowed by the Media rules.
After the short interview, we drove around the building to enter the studio and enjoyed the rest of the tv-show getting shot. That was something nice to experience.
Of course, when we got back home we looked up the media rules. Unfortunately for us, it was allowed to say the name of our website. We missed a big opportunity of getting donations in because of that.
We will continue our mission, and hopefully, we will succeed.
