Start of the campaign ‘Let’s give shelter kids new skates!’

01.12.2009

The campaign ‘Let’s give shelter kids new skates!’’ organised by the SEB Charity Fund started on 1 December. The money raised during the campaign, the eighth of its kind to be organised, will be used to support children’s shelters and safe houses all over Estonia.

Many of us remember how we felt as little kids when we managed to stay on our bikes or skates for the first time. We remember how excited and proud we felt. Every child needs successes, and attention and encouragement when learning new skills. It helps them grow – to become parents themselves who can pass on their love to their own children. Unfortunately, there are increasingly more children around us whose parents don’t care about them and who miss out on such supportive experiences in their lives.

We will use the funds raised with this campaign to give many fun-filled winter days to shelter children and buy them 150 pairs of ice skates, 100 pairs of roller skates and the protective gear they need. In the course of the campaign, people are invited to set up standing orders or make one-off donations to the Charity Fund’s current account no. 10001000100012. People can also support children’s shelters by calling the Elion donation hotline on 900 5005 (one call costs 25 kroons).
The funds raised are allocated to eight shelters. Donations have also made it possible for the children from these shelters to take up hobbies. The donations are used to finance recreational activities and hobbies of children; to buy the things required for schoolwork and handicrafts, toys, board games and sporting equipment; to organise professional training for shelter workers; to give psychological counselling to children; to establish playgrounds; to renovate shelter premises; etc.
The campaign goes on until the end of January and the results will be revealed on 31 January 2010.
