Here at Van Straaten, we look beyond the order book, day-to-day assignments and the quality of the very latest digital printing techniques. Besides supplying high-quality, large-format advertising printwork, we also believe that it is important to care. That is why we support the Radio 538 for Warchild campaign. 

The people from War Child deserve everyone's respect for the work they do to give war children a better future. What can an all-round large-format retail, event and advertising printer do to help promote this good cause? In our case, we support War Child with communication, because any event, whether it be for a good cause, an exhibition or a business trip, needs printwork. And if this printwork is also of the very highest quality and produced with all of the love and attention it deserves, it is only logical that Van Straaten and War Child are such a good match. Doing business involves more than a competitive price and the best quality; the intentions of the people behind the product matter too. The team at Van Straaten is here for you! From Friday 25 March to Friday 1 April inclusive, Radio 538 broadcasts will focus entirely on the national 538 voor War Child campaign. For a whole week, this popular radio station will tour 27 different places in the Netherlands in two trucks, during which the DJs will get people to do stunts in return for donations. The campaign base will be Rotterdam.

The kick-off and final events will both take place in Rotterdam. In between the two, Radio 538 will broadcast from a mobile studio on the Schouwburgplein from 22.00 hours to 06.00 hours every night. One of the sponsors of this campaign is the municipality of Rotterdam. Radio 538 DJs Edwin Evers and Ruud de Wild and alderman Aboutaleb will kick-off the campaign from Rotterdam on 25 March. The trucks will leave Rotterdam for a tour of the country on the same day. On 1 April, the amount raised for the campaign will be announced at a closing party on the Schouwburgplein in Rotterdam. 

A large number of Dutch celebrities have committed themselves to the campaign. They will carry out high-profile stunts, but only if they receive enough support from listeners in the form of text messages. All of the money raised from these text messages will be donated to the 538 voor War Child campaign.
