Bostaden supports VIPgalan...

... and asks Umeå for help.
This year Bostaden is more actively supporting Öppen Gemenskaps VIPgala by setting up a photo wall and ask, "Hey Umeå, do you want to be involved and help?" Those who want to help Umeås homeless can take a picture of yourself or a friend and send a contribution via MMS. The photo Wall will be on Town Hall Square on Friday and Saturday 4-5 September.

The idea behind the assistance is that life isn´t the same for all citizens in Umeå, some of us are living as homeless. And one could imagine that those of us who have a roof over your head can support those who live without shelter.

Bostaden sets of apartments for socially vulnerable in Umeå and also supports VIPgalan.

Now Bostaden encourages Umeå's inhabitants to make a contribution by taking a picture of yourself or a friend and send it via MMS. on a specific number. Anyone who does not have multimedia function can send SMS messages.
