Give a Euro Campaign to help save the Basque races: please help!!!

The groundswell of support in the Basque Country and around the world in an effort to save the Tour of the Basque Country and San Sebastian Classic from the scrapheap has resulted in an initiative asking people to donate one Euro, or whatever they feel they can afford, to help close the 150,000 Euro budget deficit. Early details have been released in the form of this website. There is also a Facebook page here with details of how to donate. At present, the only way to give money seems to be by transferring it to the bank account details listed on that page but I am raising with them the problems this presents for people in foreign countries (I know last time I tried to transfer money to a foreign account at the bank I needed all manner of codes and I incurred a massive fee). We'll see what they say. They are holding a press conference tonight at 7:30pm in San Sebastian where the campaign will be officially launched. We might get more details then. I urge you to donate something, however small, if you can. Every cent is useful.

In addition, use the hashtag #savetheBasqueraces on Twitter, and join this Facebook group.

Jose of @tourdejose has an article on her blog which sets out the monetary issues in English. Yours truly was also quoted by EiTB yesterday!

We may be very small fish trying to make ourselves heard in a surging ocean, but I for one am blowed if I'm going to see these races die without an almighty fight.314059_775955423980_202903195_39675809_880239294_n_medium
