Kizzy - Schiedam Steunt St. Maarten / Schiedam Supports St. Martin

Kizzy was the initiator of 'Schiedam Steunt St. Maarten', a charity event she set up to collect donations and goods for Saba, St. Eustatius and especially St. Martin which was hit the hardest by hurricane Irma.

The show hosted by Marco Spruit Bleeker aired LIVE on Popup TV and featured music artists, poets, speakers, historians, schools, politicians and there were even international LIVE interviews with Jonathan Johnson, the Island Governor of Saba, and Kingdom representative Gilbert Isabella.

Kizzy who kept the TV audience up to date about the donations ended with a tribute, singing the National Anthems of Saba, Statia, and St. Martin.

All donations went to the Dutch Red Cross through the notary who was present. The goods were sent to the affected Islands with the  collaboration of the Dordrecht Police Force.

You can watch the show here.
