Handing over the check

This Saturday I brought my family to the H. C. Andersens Childrens hospital to hand over the check of $2.000 USD. The amount was all collected from donations made through my blog in the fall of 2012.

H. C. Andersens Childrens hospital here in my hometown, Odense, is named after the famous danish poet/author Hans Christian Andersen. It is the only real 'hospital' for children here in Denmark as other hospitals only have childrens wards. And children come to this hospital from all parts of Denmark for treatment.

Handing over the check was at the sculpture called "Magic Mountain' / Tryllebjerget (in Danish)
Meeting with the staff at this hospital was a very nice experience and it really confirmed me in my choice of beneficiary. The staff is very dedicated and they are really doing a fantastic job providing an environment that help the kids feel as if they are not in a typical hospital.

They were very happy to receive the check for $2.000 (DKK 11.380,-) and I'm confident that they will put the money to good use.

Again, I would very much like to thank everyone that made a donation when downloading either MARunScheduler or the very popular PowerShell Management Agent. Thank you very much, you really helped make a difference for a lot of children.
