Beter dan dat concertgebouwFirst of all, a merry Christmas to all of you. And to stay in the mood, just read about the top seven financial donors to the city of Amsterdam. Charity is a good topic for today.

Number five on the list, right behind the ultra wealthy folks from Heineken and TomTom : Allard Jakobs.

The only one without a picture in the newspaper, but with his 44 years also the youngest. Bought the youth theatre De Krakeling in 2007 for eight million. Muy simpatico. Much better than the Concertgebouw.

The theatre doesn’t have Allard on the sponsor list, and newspaper Parool doesn’t have the Quote journalists on the payroll : but believe this story is true. Respect.
