On the eve of St. Nicholas Day, before the New Year holidays, every child is waiting for a miracle. It is especially important that children who are less fortunate in life than others feel the warmth and joy. It is with this goal in mind that the founders of the Amillidius international marketing company Elvira Gavrilova and Bogdan Terzi have created the annual Charity Calendar, a charitable project to help children in orphanages.
“I believe that helping people, especially children, is the sacred duty of each self-made adult. By creating Charity Calendar, I hoped to attract as many not indifferent people to the problems of orphans and children from disadvantaged families as possible. And we did it!” Elvira Gavrilova says.
“We come to the orphanage in advance and ask the children what they would like to receive as a gift for St. Nicholas Day. After the sale of our Charity Calendar, we buy not just stationery or food, but we make the dreams of each kid individually come true.” Bogdan Terzi explains.
The point of the project
Charity Calendar is a bright glossy calendar, displaying famous Ukrainians who are not indifferent to the fate of children. These are successful, high-ranking men, women, and children who gather once a year for a thematic photoshoot in the Charity Calendar. From year to year, the topic of the photoshoot changes: peoples of the world, seasons, etc. All the money from the implementation of the bright Charity Calendar goes to charity – gifts to children on St. Nicholas Day or Christmas.
