Countdown to start
Langtbortistan (Danish) is a fictitious country from the Donald Duck-universe. The name Langtbortistan is in several languages synonym for a country far-far-way, hence the *stan addition.
We’re not doing this for fun (ok, a little bit), but we want to make a difference at the same time. Before, during and after we’ll be collecting money for our two charity goals. Organisations we feel really make a difference and deserve attention.
