Lilian van Maanen; Stichting Puik voor Elkaar
Stichting Puik voor Elkaar fabricates wigs for women that are about to lose or are losing their hair due to the treatment for cancer. Even today, many women cannot afford purchasing a tailored wig. They are forced to find another solution since purchasing one is simply not possible. A beautiful wig may help these women feeling a little bit better during a vulnerable period of their life. Stichting Puik helps them for exactly this reason.
1) What was your initial question? What did you urgently need?
We needed an accountant that was capable of taking care of our financial administration in a correct manner.
2) How did Hermans & Partners organize this?
In a very pleasant way. Stichting Puik organizes a rally on a yearly basis. The goal of our rally is to gather as many donations as possible, which allows us to fund our operations. The money is used to produce wigs for women who cannot afford purchasing one themselves. H&P was one of the contestants of our rally, and that is how we got in touch for the first time. They offered to support our foundation for an affordable price. We were very delighted, since it allowed us to spend more money on achieve our mission. Nothing feels better than spending our money on new wigs.
3) What was the result and what did you notice, some pros and cons?
We got to know Marceline and we know her as a very resolute person who knows what she is talking about. The no-nonsense conversations we have with her is something we greatly appreciate, together with her direct approach and cheerfulness.
4) What would you recommend fellow entrepreneurs?
Purchase a wig for someone who cannot it afford it, become a Friend or become part of our Rally Experience! H&P is able to give you fiscal advice on how your enterprise could benefit from this. We want to help as many women in the Netherlands as possible. This is only possible if we receive enough donations, together we can do this. More information? www.puikvoorelkaar.nl!
