The money was raised primarily by volunteers knocking on doors across the country to request donations.
Thousands of volunteers took part in Sunday’s fundraiser, which netted a total of 11 million kroner, Ritzau reports.
“This is a really good result and I promise it will make a vital difference for displaced people,” Danish Refugee Council’s director of global communication and fundraising Annette Spanggaard said.
“I want to say a huge thank you to all the Danes who went out to collect for us today and to those who opened their doors and made a contribution,” she added.
The funds will be used to bolster aid from people fleeing conflicts such as the ongoing situation in Syria.
A similar national fundraiser in 2018 brought in 13 million kroner.
