Art for children in need!

Charity campaign “Donate a Children's Book – Create Magic!”

For the third year in a row, the Sts. Constantine and Helena Foundation celebrated 2 April, the International Children's Book Day and birthday of Hans Christian Andersen. Our charity initiative received the support of Varna Municipality, Education, Youth Activities and Sports Department, Regional Educational Inspectorate – Varna, MSat Cable, Mall Varna and the newest arts and culture space – Graffit Gallery.

Anyone, irrespective of his/her age, can join the first line, city campaign for collection of old children's books on the occasion of 2 April.

Any Varna citizen willing to donate old, used children's books can do so from 2 April to 2 May 2012 in the offices of M-Sat Cable and at the Information Desk of Mall Varna.

On 5 May 2012 from 10:30 to 17:00, Graffit Gallery will host a charity sale of the donated books. The funds raised are intended for the three children's institutions: the homes for children deprived of parental care “Drugarche”, “Nadezhda” and special boarding house the Sts. Cyril and Methodius in the village of Krivnya. Unsold editions will be handed over to the library funds of the homes.

The charity sale will be part of the fairy tale contest final and the children's drawing contest.
