Saving Linnea

Saving Linnea
Submitted by Kai Simons on 12/20/2017

We believe in the power of the community. And that every single person counts. This year we've been particularly touched by how much the community is behind a family's efforts to save little Linnea. Therefore, we support the campaign Saving Linnea with our Christmas donation.

Linnea is suffering from an aggressive brain tumor. The doctors in Sweden gave the family not much hope. And yet, there is a treatment that shows already first successes. Unfortunately, at the other end of the world. In Monterrey, Mexico. The cost of this treatment is quite high. Without support, the family would have to accept their fate.

Many of our friends and partners have already supported Linnea. The next milestone of the campaign has already been reached. But the journey continues. We do not want to give up hope - and show with our community that we stand in for each other. And in this cold time we can radiate human warmth.

We wish Linnea and her family a Merry Christmas, a continued positive treatment - maybe a small miracle.

And happy holidays. Think of the people in your life and be there for them.
