The most spectacular excursion for the child-participants of the charity program “Create Yourself” this summer was perhaps an excursion to the Chocolate Museum for 80 children. It took an extra half an hour at the end of the tour to round up the children who did not want to leave this tasty palace of chocolate. A special thanks to Guta Group for organizing the excursion to the Chocolate Museum.
The concert “Spasskaya Bashnya” on Moscow City Day, was also well-received by the 400 participants of the “Create Yourself” program (children and their parents) who had the chance to attend.
250 participants (again, children and their parents) were able to watch the ballet “Kostroma”.
From June to September we managed to raise 973,962 rubles ($31,786). In all, between March 23 and September 10, the total we were been able to raise with the help of our readers, was 1,540,562 rubles ($50,278). Readers of The Moscow Times helped kids that were treated in the Center of Humanitarian Programs. We helped with treatment for Olesya Chasovskikh, Kirill Larin, Avgustin Lesayev, Temur Ashurov, Olga Safonova, Viktoria Afonasenkova, Anastasia Kizim, Diana Karayeva, Daria Mironenko, Anton Kompaniets, Konstantin Tikhonov, Svetlana Pylilina. Detailed information on how the money was spent is available at www.sotvorisebya.ru
The special action “I Also Want to Learn” in partnership with LiveJournal, which prepares children for school, gathered school supplies for three different funds (“Nastenka”, “Anita Fund” and “SOS Children’s Villages”) — 25 boxes in all, full of supplies that children need for school classes. We would like to express our great thanks to the companies: Intel, Ernst & Young, Pepelyaev, Goltsblat & Partners, Independent Media Sanoma Magazines, Kukhnistroi, VimpelCom, Smart Boutique, Accenture, TopS BI and the advertising agency MediaVest.
The Moscow Times would like to say thank you to all our readers and partners who took an interest in the lives and further development of these children, all of whom are being cared for by our “Create Yourself” program.
Thank you all very much!
