The way to Sarajevo

The European Championships 2019 are coming closer, and some of the athletes are searching for some means to collect money to pay for the travel and the hotel. For the WC in April most clubs gathered funds for their own competitors, but now some of them thought it would be a good idea to combine all of their efforts. Some initiatives are on their way, but already Leen managed to make a page through Trooper.

Trooper? Trooper is an online forum that combines a lot of online shops, like e.g. CoolBlue, Zooplus, Dreamland, Booking.com and many more. If you buy online and do this through the Trooper page instead of going directly to the online shop, you can decide to give a small piece of the profit to an organisation. The customer chooses of course his/her own charity.

As from now, the national team has a page: http://www.trooper.be/itftaekwondo   

Are you planning to do some online shopping and would you like a small piece of the profit to go to the national team members, to support them on their way to Sarajevo? Then from now on you can shop through Trooper, thanks to Leen.
