Safe the date
While having a battle with my business plan I got an email from ‘Nestproject’ initiator Changfang Luo. The question was clear and simple, 
‘Would you like to spread around the event, boxXshop, via your facebook page or your blog?’ My answer was simple too ‘hell yeah!’ 

boxXshop is a very special 180 minutes Christmas market on December 1 inside Lloyd Hotel Amsterdam. Approximately 30 gift shops will pop-up 40 different boxes and present to you a great variety of limited edition gifts for Christmas and Sinterklaas (a kind of Dutch Santa Claus, but then different:) 

It's created collaboratively by 30 artists, makers and designers, who will offer you goods ranging from jewelry, paper and craft, ceramics and pottery, delicatessen, crochet, to knitting. No commercial products will be sold; only personal cultures and all handmade. 
You are offered a unique night at a fab hotel, with boxes full of handmade goodies, so please for once, don’t wait until the last day before Sinterklaas or Christmas and do you shopping on December 1 at Lloyd Hotel, Amsterdam. Happy faces guaranteed! 

When and where: Thursday December 1st , from 6 until 9pm @ Lloyd Hotel, Amsterdam

… oh, don’t forget to bring your cash!

TOMS - pick one word, necessary

Yesterday I was invited to join TOMS screening of ‘For Tomorrow, The TOMS Shoes Story’. 
An award winning documentary about a company which sells shoes, but not just any kind of shoes, nope, necessary shoes. Buy a pair of TOMS’ Alpargatas and TOMS gives one pair of new shoes to a child in need. 
I can make this a fun 'Bien' piece, but for once I'll write you a serious story, as this cause is serious business.
Blake Mycoskie, founder of TOMS and the man whom Bill Clinton has called "the most interesting entrepreneur I've ever met" started his company in 2006. 
After a vacation to Argentina, homeland of the Alpartagas, where he saw extreme poverty and health conditions, as well as children walking barefoot, he decided to take action. More than 40% of the world's people don't have shoes and that was something Blake couldn’t bear.   
Since 2006 TOMS’ shoe dorks and dudes have already been giving away more than one million pair of new shoes to a child in need. 
From today more than 250 committed people are working at TOMS headquarter in the USA and is TOMS active in over 20 countries and ‘unfortunately’ that number will increase over the next few years.   
So stand up and be the change you wish to see in the world, as your purchase today guarantees a child shoes for tomorrow.

There are many things you can do for TOMS, please visit their website for more information.
