Sure, you could go somewhere Sunday afternoon or stay home that evening. You’ll just risk having people think you’re in favor of destroying the Earth.

The annual charity telethon hosted by NRK, which is donating this year’s proceeds to the Rainforest Foundation’s efforts to help save rainforests and the people who live there, wraps up a month of activities this weekend with a trio of local events in addition to the national broadcast.

An open house at The Governor of Svalbard’s residents is scheduled from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, with new Gov. Kjerstin Askholt presenting a history of the residence at 1 and 2 p.m.

A local auction of items is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. Sunday at the Radisson Blu Polar Hotel. Children will also go door-to-door during the afternoon collecting donations.

Longyearbyen traditionally has by far the nation’s highest per-capita donations due to a larger-than-typical lineup of events.

About Post Author

Mark Sabbatini

I'm a professional transient living on a tiny Norwegian island next door to the North Pole, where once a week (or thereabouts) I pollute our extreme and pristine environment with paper fishwrappers decorated with seemingly random letters that would cause a thousand monkeys with a thousand typewriters to die of humiliation. Such is the wisdom one acquires after more than 25 years in the world's second-least-respected occupation, much of it roaming the seven continents in search of jazz, unrecognizable street food and escorts I f****d with by insisting they give me the platonic tours of their cities promised in their ads. But it turns out this tiny group of islands known as Svalbard is my True Love and, generous contributions from you willing, I'll keep littering until they dig my body out when my climate-change-deformed apartment collapses or they exile my penniless ass because I'm not even worthy of washing your dirty dishes.
