Giving back

Over the years I have seen so many people being focused on really making this world a better place. Those people inspired me to start my own foundation: Share Trade. With this foundation we want to focus on education, in a broad sense: to inform, to create awareness and to inspire people all across the world.

With the profits of the first book I wrote: ‘100 plekken waar je geweest moet zijn’, I funded Share Trade. My profit from ‘Floortje naar het einde van de wereld’, plus the other titles will also be donated to the Share Trade foundation.
