Rotterdam, The Netherlands

The official UTW Day 2017 event in Rotterdam was organized by Valentijn Vogel, and it benefitted Shelter Suit, a Dutch company that manufactures water- and windproof coats which can be transformed into sleeping bags for homeless people.

About the event

For UTW Day, Valentijn and his wife Janneke turned their small Korean restaurant in the heart of Rotterdam into a live music venue, and they invited friends, customers and neighbors to come by. Local bands My Reign Coat, Minor Planet Magdalena, De Dikke Kees and Motordood performed and rocked the place all day!

Valentijn wrote: “We’ve had an awesome UTW Day! We were able to tell a lot of people about UTW and about how a million small actions can make a difference. I’m happy to announce that we have collected 548 euros for sheltersuit. Stoked!!”
