Art for children in need!

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

For the fifth year in a row, St. St. Constantine and Helena Foundation celebrated 2 April, the International Children's Book Day and birthday of Hans Christian Andersen. The charity initiative won the support of Varna Municipality, Regional Educational Inspectorate – Varna, MSAT Cable, Mall Varna and Festival and Congress Centre – Varna.

The initiative is essential to us since we would like to contribute to the development of talents, creative imagination and uniqueness of children, as well as to help socially disadvantaged youngsters not only by improving the living conditions of institutions they live in but also by providing books and materials developing their creativity.  

 

As the tradition has it, the initiative was launched on 2 April and will run along three lines:

1.                   Pan-urban campaign for collection of old children's books “Donate a Children's Book – Create Magic”.

For a little more than a month: from 2 April to 8 May 2014 each Varna citizen willing to donate old children's books can do so in the offices of MSat Cable at the Information Desk of Mall Varna and in the Ticket Centre of the Festival and Congress Centre – Varna.

In the second half of May, in St. St. Constantine and Helena resort, a charity sale of the compendium will take place. The funds are intended for the three children's institutions – homes for children deprived of parental care Drugarche and Knyaginya Nadezhda in the town of Varna as well as special boarding school St. St. Cyril and Methodius, 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.
