I was a caregiver for my ill parents and my wife. I told my story on TEDx Amsterdam and I won a second place!

Now I’m able to help other people in need with my Bucket Line Foundation.

When his wife was diagnosed with cancer. His parents were taken ill, almost at the same time and he realized exactly how overwhelming the role of the caregiver becomes. The Dutch man began to think of ways in which he could do something to alleviate the distress of caregivers, to help them in their day-to-day life.

The Bucket line helps to co-ordinate the needs of the caregivers with those who are best able to help them in their tasks. Through this foundation, people who are in need of help with specific tasks are matched with those in their neighborhoods who are willing to lend a helping hand. -TEDx

Please help me to share the idea 🙂 The Netherlands website (in Dutch) is here: www.bucketline.nl

Here’s my 5 minute TED talk:
