Last year Tijn started a nailpainting-initiative at the ‘Glass house’ of Serious Request, this time it was in Breda where a few DJ’s sit, fast for a few days and bring awareness/raise funds for a certain plight. In came little Tijn with his dad, starting to paint the nails of people in order to raise money for the treatment of brain stem cancer. Not for himself, but for others. Quickly the whole country was swept up and painting their nails and raising money and Tijn became a national hero. Yesterday it was announced that the goal of raising 1 million in funds was made.
