With the Dutch fundraising campaign Serious Request in full swing and over 6.3 million euros collected through Tuesday evening, NL Times takes a seat inside Het Glazen Huis, the glass house on Haarlem's Grote Markt, to chat with two of the 3FM disk jockeys broadcasting the 2014 fundraising effort. The main characters of this years’ event are girls and women in war-struck regions who have fallen victim to sexual abuse. Three 3FM radio DJs are giving them a voice by locking themselves up and broadcasting twenty-four hours per day for a full week.

Dutch foreign trade and development minister Lilianne Ploumen showed three radio DJs into their confined space, a glass room in Haarlem’s Grote Markt and promptly locked the door behind them Thursday evening. The 3FM personalities, Gerard Ekdom, Coen Swijnenberg and Domien Verschuuren will sleep and work in the house for one week as they raise money for charity, with the theme “Hands off Our Girls.” 

They do not get to eat for the week, getting only nutrition shakes instead of food. Over 2.4 million euros has already been raised through Sunday afternoon for this year's campaign.
