Thursday and Friday this week it was time for one of my favourite events. #TruAmsterdam (The Recruiting Unconferences or TRU Events are a series of pure unconferences organised worldwide, where the emphasis is on conversation, communication and the free exchange of ideas and experiences. www.truamsterdam.com )
The awesome organisers of #Tru @liesbetderouck , @patrickboonstra , @renebolier @gordonlokenberg en @billborman gave me the podium to talk about my walk not only that but they donated 250 Euro to the cause! What a Kick-off!
Two mornings, I had time to talk about #BiancaWalks, why I am doing this and talk more about Alzheimer itself and why I chose Alzheimer Nederland.
But I can tell you one thing, it was mindblowingly beautiful! People donated, talked to me about the walk , also stories were shared about someone they know who has a form of dementia and offered help in completing my wishlist.
#Tru is always a special event, but I have to say all the generosity , dare I say…the #Trulove really touched me. I was thinking about this today whilst I was walking and just want to say it one more time:
To the people who made #Tru happen : Thank you so much for creating this opportunity!
To the people who attended #Tru : Wow, wow wow..to just donate like you did, that was awesome! More than awesome! Thank you so much for all your encouraging words, that was ….awesome too!
And to @liesbetderouck, thanks mate on your proactivity and pushing the cause. I shall, from now on call you : the money collector.
The End result of those 2 days was : 547 Euro and 38 Cent!
And it shows, Recruiters have a heart too
