The Dutch Royal Family will traditionally take part in the annual NL.DOET weekend,
march 17th and 18th,formerly know as Make A Difference Day.From HM to all other
members of the House,they will all participate in volunteer projects over the weekend.
I think it fantastic that volunteer work is highlighted,society would be bleak without
them,and that our RF promotes and acknowledges the importance of those with a
heart for others.
