We raised 730,000 kroons with our winter campaign

01.02.2009

The campaign ‘Help children whose parents don’t care!’, which lasted from December 2008 to January 2009, came to an end. We managed to raise 730,000 kroons for charity during the campaign. A record number of standing orders, almost 1900, were also set up during the campaign.

We are very grateful to all donors and regular supporters, who noticed the children who often go unnoticed. Our goal is to further the developing and coping skills of children without parental care by supporting shelters. The funds raised with the campaign will be used to improve the situation of children’s shelters and safe houses in Estonian. The fund now has more than 6100 regular supporters. The fund has signed cooperation contracts with the Children’s Shelter of the Tallinn Children’s Home, the Tallinn Children’s Safe House, the Family Help Centre in Pärnu, the Narva Children’s Shelter, the Lootus Children’s Welfare Centre in Sillamäe, the Haiba Children’s Home, the family house that provides shelter services in the Kiikla Children’s Home and the Tartu Children’s Safe House.

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. In association with the volunteers from the club set up to support the fund, and in addition to distributing support, we also organise events that are designed to support the development of shelter children and their ability to get by.

These events have included first aid training with Tallinn’s ambulance service; a fairy tale evening with Uncle Raivo; a music workshop with rapper G-Enka; a film production day with the Kinobuss crew; a huge cooking party at the Tallink City hotel; a gingerbread rally; and the production of bird-feeders, etc.

In the course of the campaign conducted in December and January, we invited people to set up standing orders to support shelter children regularly or make one-off donations to the SEB Charity Fund’s current account no. 10001000100012. People could also support children by buying Atria, Maks & Moorits, Lipton, Tere or Domestos products from Rimi stores during the campaign.
People could also support children’s shelters by calling the donation hotline on 900 5005 (one call costs 25 kroons) during the campaign. The donation hotline is open all year round.
