Charity Instead of Souvenirs
For three years we have taken part in the “Charity Instead of Souvenirs” movement of the “Podari Zhizn” (Give Life) Fund. Part of the company’s New Year souvenir budget is transferred to the treatment of seriously ill children. Last year, 111 companies decided to refuse their presents in favor of the most important and desired gift - to help children. It collected more than 35 million rubles ( http://podari-zhizn.ru/main/node/24886 ). The money raised this year will be spent on the treatment of patients older than 18 years at the Center for Pediatric Hematology named by Dima Rogachev. Some of them began their treatment before they turned 18, others came again with a relapse. The thing is that these patients can’t be treated from the budget money and can stay in the hospital only at their own expense, which is about 2.5 million rubles for a patient per month. This includes bone marrow transplants, drugs, procedures and diagnostics, and stay at the clinic. Our favorite clients receive New Year postcards made by the Fund. This reminds us all that we work not only for ourselves, or to support our families, and to raise the GDP, but to make our society more prosperous and generous.
