With our DR.W. watches we want to give something back to society. If you buy a watch we will donate part of it to charity organization ‘Stichting Vlinderkind’ (the Dutch Butterfly Child Foundation). Stichting Vlinderkind is supporting children and their families that are suffering from Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), a severe skin disorder that makes the skin extremely vulnerable and can, ultimately, lead to the death. Please find below why we are donating Stichting Vlinderkind and this watch is called “Jurre”.
Jurre was born on the 6th of July 2016 as the child of Reinder’s (one of the founders of DR.W.) brother and sister in law. Jurre was born with EB. Jurre had no chance due to the type of this disorder he was born with. He died on 11th of September 2016 due to the complication and effects of this disease. However, other children do have a chance to live with this disorder. They need a lot of treatment and care which is costly. And with current medical developments, we are confident this disorder might be treated successfully in the future.
