How can my company help

If you would like to raise funds within your company, there are many ways we can help you do that. Please, contact Dagmar Mekking at to explore ideas..

Here are a few examples how companies have raised funds research into Osteogenesis Imperfecta:

The Sound of …

We have organised charity concerts just like “The Voice of Holland”, but with the the voices of your colleagues who sing for Care4BrittleBones, supported by a live band and a professional singing coach. The events we have run so far are a way to celebrate the divers talents people have and generate a sense of pride and purpose within the company

Running events (CPC, Dam2Dam, Zwolle Half Marathon)

We also have worked with various companies who were up for a sports challenge. Running for those who (very often) can’t run: People with OI! Take up a challenge together with your colleagues! For example a Dam2Damloop. The team spirit built when teams take up a challenge together is absolutely amazing.

Celebration Gift / Seasonal celebration packages

When there is something to celebrate, it is a good tradition to also think of other people around you who may be in a less fortunate position. We have seen various companies donating to Care4BrittleBones at the occasion of a company celebration. Other companies provide a choice to their colleagues to receive a Christmas goody bag or provide a donation to a charity of their choice. In some cases companies organised a charity auction or raffle in relation to seasonal celebration events in support of research for OI.

Giving holidays instead of a cash-donation

In many companies staff have built up a significant back log of leave. A new trend in giving for companies is therefore to offer employees to give a “holiday” instead of a donation. We are happy to provide advice, how this can be enabled in your company too!

Goal of leaving colleagues

When colleagues are leaving they usually receive a gift of some kind. In various instances employees have opted for a donation to Care4BrittleBones instead of a conventional gift.
