Swedish Volleyball team helps children in war go to school!
News from the clubs

Örebro, Sweden, December 19, 2016. Musikhjälpen is a Swedish week-long live radio and TV broadcast. The mission of the show is to create awareness and raise funds for a humanitarian cause. This year Musikhjälpen was held in Örebro and the local Volleyball team competing in the elite division of the Swedish national league raised money as well to help out.

Since 2008, the Swedish Public Radio and Public Television together with the NGO Radiohjälpen produce the week-long live broadcast Musikhjälpen, with the goal to raise awareness and funds to relieve the victims of a humanitarian catastrophe. There are a vast number of initiatives held all around Sweden, each one with the mission to collect money for this one cause. Musikhjälpen engages thousands and thousands of people each year. This year’s theme was “Children in war have the right to go to school”.

Örebro Volley, the local elitserieteam, wanted to join in and help raise money for this cause. They did so by raising money with a digital money box, by playing a game in the national league to raise further funds and on top of it each player contributed to an auction on Tradera, a popular e-commerce website, where a Christmas present was hidden behind the portrait of each player and fans could bid on. The presents were provided by sponsors or the players themselves. This action resulted in the collection of 3,000 SEK, approximately € 300.

“In Sweden every child can go to school for free, and so some people take that for granted. As a result, this year’s theme chosen for Musikhjälpen felt so obvious and important. The players immediately agreed that they wanted to something and so we did. It feels good to have done something for someone else and for the kids in war it can be a small step on their way to happiness,” says Madeleine Eriksson of Örebro Volley. 

As a result of their efforts, Örebro Volley raised 20,000 SEK, i.e. more than € 2,000, to support Musikhjälpen. All together the organisers raised funds for 49 million SEK all over Sweden, i.e. more than € 5 million, an all-time record since Musikhjälpen started in 2008.
