Annual fundraiser a big success
Just over DKK 900,000 was collected at the Red Cross national fundraiser on 7 September.
This is a big jump on last year’s event, which collected DKK 750,000.
The Faroese public are significantly more generous than e.g. Danes.
The average Faroese donation this year was DKK 17, compared to DKK 4 for each Danish citizen last year.
Red Cross Faroe Islands has yet to decide which charities it will support with this money. See also: Hackers disrupt Red Cross fundraiser
