8 Uur Overwerken voor het goede doelOn March 26th, ‘8 Uur Overwerken voor het goede doel’ (8 Hours Overtime for charity) will start in the city of Arnhem (NL). In eight hours time, five teams – consisting of five creative minds and a coach, will work on different projects for five charities. These creative teams will come up corporate identities, communication strategies, logos, merchandise, websites, ad campaigns and other immediately applicable concepts.

Two birds, one stone
Initiator Gerjanne Tiemens explains: ‘We kills two birds with one stone. Charities get beautiful designs and wonderful ideas; young creative minds get the opportunity to add products to their portfolio and make an important contribution to society. Besides that, everyone connects with interesting people and finds inspiration!’ 

National initiative

Eight hours overtime began in Groningen in 2004, but will be held in ten different cities this year! Participating cities are Amsterdam, Apeldoorn, Arnhem, Den Haag, Groningen, Leeuwarden, Rotterdam, Tilburg, Utrecht and Amersfoort.

Creative minds
There is still room for more creative minds. Posters and flyers will be distributed in the near future and more media attention shall be paid nearer the event.

To make the event a guaranteed success, they are still looking for more sponsors, at a minimum of four, who can donate €250,- each. They are also looking for sponsored goods, like catering, or computers to use during the event.
