The Koningsspelen are organised by a special committee led by Richard Krajicek. "We thought it would be nice to give every child a unique T-shirt, to add to the festive atmosphere of the day. Pantar Amsterdam, an organisation specialised in sheltered employment, will pack the Royal sports shirts separately, and PostNL will see to it that all schools receive them in time," Richard Krajicek says.
Herna Verhagen, CEO of PostNL: "The Koningsspelen fit in perfectly with our own children's programmes. 'Children' is one of the central themes at PostNL. This is reflected in our cooperation with the United Nations for the school feeding programme in Malawi, in which our employees raised money for almost four million meals for children in Malawi. Using a light-hearted approach, every year some three hundred enthusiastic PostNL volunteers visit primary schools throughout the Netherlands to educate children on topics like poverty, hunger and climate change."
