Expo receives donation for a major report on xenophobiaAug 12, 2011 09:07 BST
The Expo Foundation intends to issue a comprehensive report on the anti-Muslim world in the Scandinavia. This is possible thanks to a donation from blogger Calle Schulman and gaming company Paf.
The money from Calle Schulman and Paf charity blog Schulmania comes very handy.
- Expo is not a rich foundation and the donation from Schulman and Paf enables us to do an essay on the anti-Muslim movement, whose ideas today are represented in both elected assemblies and on the Internet, says Alex Bengtsson, Education manager at the Expo Foundation.
Calle Schulman and Paf have previously donated money to smaller organizations and the focus has been on the receiver that works for underprivileged children.
- Expo work hard, volunteer and tirelessly towards that kind of extremism that led up to the events in Norway. Expo needs all the money they can get to spread their knowledge. And it is very important to Paf by me and the readers are doing what we can to ensure that such things never happen again, says Schulman.
How much Expo get when the month of August added up is still unclear. The amount is based on unique visits on Calle Schulman blog Schulmania. No previous recipients have received less than 30 000 SEK.
- Given the events in Norway, we might break the record this month. People who want to support efforts to combat xenophobia will surely visit the blog. Many will find that Calle's blog is really fun to follow, which means more money for good causes to come, says Paf's press officer Anders Sims.
Expo's report will be released later this fall, but before then, Expo will release a booklet with explanations of the concept and ideas that the anti-Muslim movement uses.
