Charity cultural event in Vaasa

Post by Dark » Wed Jan 22, 2014 9:40 pm

Hi all

I read the "Use of Announcements Forum" rules, and since this is not really a commercial post (it's a charity event) I think it's ok. Also, I clicked on the "Support" link for announcements, this sent me to a page that didn't exist.

I will move from Belgium to Vaasa soon, and I came here to post about the following:

If you're free this Friday (24/01), I would like to point you to a charity cultural event that is being held in Vaasa. It will be held at the Mira House and is organized by Vietnamese students. The goal is to raise money to help children in the Northern Vietnamese province to get through the cold winter.

There will be games, dancing, performances and delicious food, all included in the entrance price.

You can check out the facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/warmfeetwasa

or the Couch Surfing event if you are on CS: https://www.couchsurfing.org/n/events/t ... am-finland


Let's have a warm heart for a cold winter! :)


I know it's a bit short notice. But every extra ticket sold is more help for the kids. And yes, I experienced it myself, it DOES get cold in some places in Vietnam! :)

Forum rules are one thing, Finnish law another. Just a heads up for organizers: https://www.poliisi.fi/poliisi/home.nsf ... endocument

Hi Upphew

thanks for the info. I see in the link you posted however that all should be ok. According to the info in the link you gave, the following is true (at the bottom of the page) :
The following do not fall under the aegis of the Money Collection Act:
...
4) auctions, concerts and support events for charities;
As it is an actual charity event, it looks like no money collection licence is needed. You are correct however to keep the law in mind. So thank you for the information =) Should you happen to live in Vaasa, feel free to come by =)
