Glass house in Heerlen visited by UM staff


Staff members of Maastricht University have visited the Glass House in Heerlen to donate 10.000 euro to Serious Request. Several actions like a torch light walk have raised this money.


This year the Serious Request theme is ‘Keep them going’. The money will be sent to children in war zones with poor chance of education and development. 

Paul Rabbering, Domien Verschuuren and Giel Beelen are this year’s DJ’s who will be locked in the Glass House from 18 to up and including 24 December. They are not allowed to eat and are 24 hours a day visible via radio, tv and online.
