FUND RAISING ACTIVITIES

GREETING CARDS

Like other charities such as Unicef, WWF, etc., we raise funds by selling original cards. The proceeds from the card sales (proudly approx. 80% of the sales price) go to charity.

Since 1997, we have been developing and selling more than 10 variety of designs.

CHARITY WATCHES

Thanks to the initiative of Seiko Instrument Europe, Dog of Flanders Charity Watch was realized in the end of 2003. Proceeds from the sales directly go to donation. The buyer can choose between two face patterns and four different watchband colors. Please consult the watch page.

LICENSING OF TRADEMARK AND LOGOS

Our Nello & Patrasche characters, though different from those in the TV animation familiar to the Japanese public, are originals drawn by a Belgian designer. We have registered the design in the Benelux, together with names such as "Nello & Patrasche" and "Dog of Flanders", for categories of sweets, stationery and other goods. We are seeking licensees for chocolate, waffles, caps and T-shirts. We would appreciate your help in this endeavor. All royalties will go to the foundation.

Since summer 2007, young entrepreneurs based in Antwerp signed license agreement with us and strated selling Nello and Patrasche T-shirt at their shop Belgian Heritage very close to the Cathedral in Antwerp.   They are also selling our original Nello and Patrasche items, like charity cards and watches.

 

OTHER ACTIVITIES

Charity bazaar and charity concerts have been sometimes conducted.

In March 2007,  Yokohama Rotary Club District 2590 organized a wonderful charity concert  and gave its proceeds as donation to us.  They kindly proposed to donate the proceeds from this year's charity concert, which is scheduled on April 12 (Sat) in Yokohama.

We appreciate your ideas and contributions!
