We want to share the success of the Windmill Windup and every year we work with one of two international charities (Open Arms Malawi and Road to 40) to provide awareness and financial support for organizations working with children in developing countries.
The focus charity for 2011 is Road to 40.
Through Bugaboo International BV's continued support,
we are able to raise additional funds by hosting the Huck Competition
and other charity events during the tournament .
Bugaboo is a Dutch company that designs and produces mobility products and is particularly well-known for its innovative prams. Following on from its launch in Amsterdam in 1999, the company is now internationally recognised. From 1 October 2009, Bugaboo, as partner of (PRODUCT)RED™, contributes 1% of its total revenue to the Global Fund to help reach the goal of eliminating mother to child HIV-transmission by 2015.

We work, together with our parent organization Room to Read, with local communities throughout the developing world to provide quality educational opportunities by establishing libraries, creating local language children's literature, constructing schools, and providing education to girls.
We provide shelter, food, care, love and medical facilities for fifty orphaned or abandoned infants from one day old to five years old. Open Arms returns, wherever possible, immunized, fit toddlers to relations in village or townships and monitors the 'returnees' subsequent progress.
