Two students at the Karel de Grote-Hogeschool are a crowdfunding started for Nicole from the One-program Taboo.

Sunday told the 73-year-old Nicole how after the death of her husband, a mountain of debt of 2.5 million euros had inherited, and so with 85 euro per week to live. Her big dream: new furniture can buy.

Koen Claes Rouire (20) and Camille De Bruyn (20), student marketing at Karel de Grote university College, saw the episode and after a call on Twitter for an action for Nicole, she decided a collection. They opened an account, and on Tuesday came the action online on Facebook.

The duo originally wanted to at least 3,000 euros collect to with Nicole furniture to buy. The students could also contact the woman, who initially was not sure whether or not the gift but wanted to adopt. The money they don’t have to get your hands on, in order to ensure that they would not issue to mediation of debts. But the fact that they are new furniture would have seemed to her initially a great gift.

Nevertheless, it has been decided the selection of the students to accept, but on condition that they are what remains after the purchase of the new furniture, would be allowed to donate to a charity that advocates for people in poverty. “We found that really very noble of Nicole’, says Koen to The Newspaper. The goal of the fundraising campaign was promptly increased to 3.500 euro.

Friday afternoon was the cape of 3,500 was exceeded. Those who still wish to donate, you can on Facebook.
