Major donations

On the one hand it is very pleasant that a lot of donated Tenth Cent coins result in big sums but on the other hand major donators who allow the financing of a whole project are also very important. Major donators are often rich favourers who want to offer part of their money to the relief organisation of their trust. But also Third World groups are counted among the major donators. An initiative in Steyr (a city in Upper Austria) collects scrap materials and has already donated 20 tractors out of the financial profit. In Landeck (a city in Tyrol) a Third World group generates large sums of money from a big flea market. Six all-terrain vehicles have already been financed from this. One must also not forget persons who donate sums of money which are major donations in relation to their income. For example a wife offered MIVA the whole coin collection of her deceased husband.
