Likewise in Denmark. Volunteer-run non-for-profit organizations
automatically are not tax subjects at all. But tax-deductable donation
status must be explicitly applied for, and is likely to succeed only
for groups with serious puppy-eye causes to appeal to.

Henning Makholm                              "It will be useful even at this
