Helping Japan – my favourite things in life all come together to help
This week has been great with a big medal harvest in my No. 1 sport – Biathlon. The Norwegian biathletes Emil Hegle Svensen, Alexander Os and Ole Einar Bjørndalen won 4 x 7.5 km Relay Men on Friday but cancelled their victory celebration and donated their price money to the relief effort following the earthquake and tsunami catastrophy in Japan.
I have been a proud Lions member for 15 years. Yesterday Lions Clubs International Foundation announced that they aid the relief in Japan with US$1.25 Million.
The fantastic thing about Lions is that we are all volunteers. And we are present around the world, so Lions-members in Japan – with intimate local knowledge. That means that the money can be put to a more precise use.
