AM I SUPPOSED TO ARRIVE ONE DAY BEFORE THE SIC IN LAAX?

DO THE CHARITABLE PROJECTS ACTUALLY BENEFIT FROM 100% OF MY DONATION?

We will cover the costs for the organization and the administrative effort of the entire SIC thanks to sponsorship. Therefore, you can be sure that your donation will really be used there for what you decided. Only a very small percentage is retained by the service providers as a fee for each electronic payment. We are very grateful to our generously committed sponsors for their support !

I CAN’T AFFORD TO MAKE A LARGE DONATION, DO I STILL HAVE A CHANCE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SIC?

The chance to participate in the SIC should really be open to everyone. Therefore, we will raffle most of the participants’ places among all donors regardless of the amount of donations they have made. Keeping fingers crossed for you!
