New Add-on Projects: Kindergarten “ Pinokio”, city of Ruse and MBAL Hospital “St. Anna”, city of Varna

Thanks to your continuous support, we had some leftover money from our project in Vratsa. We decided to invest it in helping the kindergarten for children with special needs “Pinokio” in the city of Ruse and the maternity ward in MBAL Hospital “St. Anna” in the city of Varna.

We will deliver school supplies and specialized equipment for physical activity for the kindergarten, and infusion pumps, patient monitors, pump stands and surgical equipment for the hospital. We are pleased in supporting two different institutions thus helping them to provide better care for the children in need.

Washington DC - Kick Off Our New Campaign

Washington DC Charity Event And Kick Off Our New Campaign

Thanks to all of you who made it to our fundraiser in Washington DC! We were happy to see so many people in the DC area share our vision to support the most vulnerable members of society – our children.

The event marked the end of our campaign for the School of Arts and Crafts for Socially Disadvantaged Children “Dimitar Ekimov” in the village of Rusalya. We not only reached our initial goal but we doubled it! The funds will cover the operating expenses for the school for more than 2 years.

We were also excited to kick off our new campaign for the regional hospital Hristo Botev in the city of Vratsa. They urgently need a new ultrasound for the pediatric department and a new ultrasound, a birth bed, and gynecological examination chair for the maternity ward. We have an ambitious goal to raise $50,000 that with your generosity, we hope to meet and even exceed!

We would like to thank our friends from the Bulgarian Professionals Club and the Embassy of Bulgaria in Washington, D.C. for hosting and spreading the word!

Special thanks to folk dance group Zharava and our business sponsors – Malincho Euro Market & DeliKukeri Wines and Rangel Photo Booth who made the night truly memorable. Videos and photos from the event will be posted here in the next few days.

And last but not least, thank you Nedyalko Gerontiev for the initiative! Without you, this event would not have happened!

Manhattan Charity Event A Huge Success

Huge Success of our Manhattan Charity Gala

The Manhattan Charity Gala on May 15th, 2019 was a huge success. Great turnout and we exceed our initial goal of raising $25,000 for the School for Socially Disadvantaged Children in the village of Rusalya, Bulgaria. The school educates children from families living in extreme poverty with no previous access to any form of education. The school has been profoundly successful in taking these children out of their toxic environment and integrating them as beneficial elements of society. Your donations will help support he school operations for at least one more year.

Huge thanks to our co-host Polina Marinova, author of ‘The Profile’ newsletter and editor at Fortune Magazine and to the event sponsors –  PAAY, an innovative provider of e-commerce payment solutions, and Rubella Beauty, the largest producer of cosmetics and toiletries in Bulgaria.

Thank you friends for your continuous support!
