Streetartist Laser 3.14 laat poëzie in Den Bosch achter: 'Den Bosch is een onwaarschijnlijk mooie stad'
De hele maand juni vind je een expositie van streetart kunstenaars Frank Willems, Streetart Frankey en Laser 3.14 in de Vughterstraat.

#37 - Laser 3.14: As long as it’s epic
On this episode, we sit down with Laser 3.14, a street artist and street poet spraying messages poignant, thoughtful, sometimes humourous and sometimes confronting on the streets of Amsterdam and beyond.
In the early days of his NFT journey, but now well immersed, Laser 3.14 sees the draw of this subculture as similar to that of graffiti and hip hop back in the days, where incredible things are blossoming through the will of the people who rally around it.
Episode 17 about Laser 3.14's mother's case
In de zeventiende aflevering van de Donateursbelangen podcast staat nalaten aan goede doelen centraal. We bespreken met Irene van der Linde, redacteur bij De Groene Amsterdammer en Theo Hesen, Adviseur Erfeniswerving, wat er allemaal komt kijken bij nalaten aan goede doelen en we nemen een voorbeeld door waarbij het zelfs en helaas tot een rechtszaak tussen familie en goede doelen is gekomen.
SIGN - SHARE - CARE
Please sign and share this petition for justice! Read the article 'Be Careful With Legacies' in the De Groene Amsterdammer or on our blog. The article shows how two charities are selfishly clinging to the law without admitting the husband’s intention of leaving his estate to his wife. Thank you for your help!
'BE CAREFUL WITH LEGACIES'
"Lots of advertisements about including charities in your will come by on the radio and television. When you think of charities, you think of organizations that have an eye for the less fortunate among us and for those who are unable to take care of themselves. In the past I have been actively involved in charities myself, until now, that I have been confronted with the real nature of some of these charities, in my case the DOA (Animal Shelter Amsterdam) with Hans Fokkens as their director and Stichting het Gehandicapte Kind (Fund for handicapped children) with Henk Willen Laan as their director. I learned the hard way that these charities are commercial money grabbers who mainly want to take good care of themselves, paying themselves a yearly salary of €100,000 from the donations and legacies.
Attached you will find an article by Irene van der Linde, journalist from De Groene Amsterdammer, with photos by Nicole Segers, about the legacy of my stepfather Cees, who was happily married to my mother for 16 years. Cees had forgotten his will or he had thought that it would no longer be valid due to their marriage in community of property. The consequences of his human error became a nightmare for my mother.
The article shows that charities are never - no matter what the circumstances are - willing to reject a legacy. My mother took them to court. My mother's lawyer had requested a declaratory judgment that the charities could not derive any rights from Cees' will. The law offers limited leeway for an interpretation of the will other than the textual interpretation. This limited leeway has led to several rulings in favor of the next of kin by judges in the past. Despite all the efforts of those involved, my mother was not so lucky. In fact, to prevent other relatives in the future from filing lawsuits against charities, she was ordered to pay the lawyer's fees of the charities of no less than € 1,800.
Moral of the story: NEVER include charities in your will. Whatever your relationship is with your family, nobody deserves this. It’s not only the DOA and Stichting Het Gehandicapt Kind, charities such as the Salvation Army and De Zonnebloem have followed our lawsuit closely, apparently they follow the same policy. These abuses must be exposed in order to avoid more people becoming victims. My appeal to you is therefore, share this article with all your contacts, especially with people aged 50 or older."
