Dark & Cold

Dark & Cold

We are the Happy Friends of Cold and Darkness.

We work on a voluntary basis to develop positive experiences in those parts of the world that have a prolonged period of darkness and cold.

This is about, cooperation with other players, to further ennoble darkness and cold into something that enriches the lives of both those who live in these areas and for those who have the privilege of visiting this part of the world.
