The Foundation MIN STORA DAG
The goal of MinStoraDag, (My Big Day), is to grant wishes to critically ill children (3-18yrs) in Sweden suffering from severe, not seldom life-threatening, diseases. The foundation’s work is unique as each child is actively involved in planning his or her own wish.
MinStoraDag cooperates with all of Sweden’s University Hospitals and Children clinics. It is the child’s primary physician, who refers the child to the Foundation who helps to make their wishes come true!
MIN STORA DAG’s Activities and Wishes:
A wish for a Big Day can vary a lot: Nicolina 6 years wished for a djungle room; Malcolm 4 loves trains and went for a trip with his family, Erik 14 met Lionel Messi in Barcelona, while Rebecka 17 wanted to see a musical in London.
In addition, the foundation makes it possible for groups of children to attend pop concerts, circus-shows, motor-shows and other special events. They also visit the hospitals with clowns, artists etc, and arrange camps which include sailing and other sporting activities.
In 2012 MinStoraDag completed more than 600 different activities of which 245 were Big Days..
The foundation’s Patron and Ambassadors:
MinStoraDag is very fortunate to have Her Royal Highness, Princess Madeleine as its patron. She is very engaged and regularly visits the children at the hospitals.
The official Goodwill Ambassadors for MinStoraDag are the two popular television hosts Martin Timell and Tobbe Blom and adventurour Johan Ernst Nilson, as well as the artist Amy Diamond. In addition to visiting the children at the hospitals they generously donate their time and their talents to our fundraising endeavours.
MinStoraDag does not receive any government funds but is completely dependant on generous donations from companies, other foundations and private citizens. The foundation holds a Swedish 90-account and is under strict, yearly, regulation by The Swedish Foundation for Regulated Donations (Svensk Insamlingskontroll) in association with ICFO (International Committee for Fundraising Organizations).
