The Uptown Hostel Amsterdam party

The Pig as a Sponsor

Those who stayed with us know that Flying Pig guests, when they check out, have the option to donate their keycard to ‘Trees for Travel’. This company plants and maintains rain forests all around the world in order to compensate for greenhouse gasses.

In our last eZine we told you about kiteboard movie ‘Close Up’ sponsored by the Flying Pig (order the movie at the pigshop: http://surfersbirthday.com/shop/).

But there is more, so here a quick overview of other events the Flying Pig sponsored recently or made a donation to:

Zero2hero
5000 school children of Curacao took part in an inspiring educational experience: the Amsterdam-Dakar charity drive to Senegal in an old ambulance. The Flying Pig provided their accommodation in Amsterdam; in exchange they had our logo on their car.

Moving Slowly
Two great guys travel the world in a really small open car. They help people wherever they can and experience the real culture of all the places they drive through. This project was born out of the need to experience the world and its myriad of cultures from a different perspective.

Rip Rally
The Flying Pig sponsored one of the Rip Rally boats competing in the Red Sea Rip Rally 2007 in Egypt, just because it’s cool, fast, exciting and dangerous.
