The speakers at From Business to Buttons got a special gift this year. And we wish that it will inspire more people to finance Red Cross doctors working in Syria. – We hope that more people will donate money to the Red Cross, says Jane Murray, project manager at FBTB.
Every year the From Business to Buttons speakers get a gift. A small token of our appreciation. They get one symbolic thing from Sweden, e.g. some salty liquorice or an Astrid Lindgren book. But they also get something that contributes to a better world. This year we chose to focus on the situation in Syria.
– Many of us are sad and frustrated over the conflict in Syria. So it feels good to try and help people in a difficult situation, says Jane Murray, project manager for the conference.

The gift to the speakers this year is a donation to the Red Cross, to finance a doctor working in a Red Cross hospital for one entire year.
– The conference is about engagement. To help get an engaged doctor where it is really needed feels very good, says Marie Johansson, event coordinator at FBTB.
