The winners of the festival “Mini Miss Ukraine” together with an artist Kate Mosquito prepared hand-made painting, which became the final lot of the auction.

The owner of the restaurant O’GOROD had an idea of a charity evening very spontaneously during a normal conversation, though it was in the pre-Christmas time. Exactly this festive hour inspired Anna Naden to initiate charitable activities to help the elderly.

Together with the co-workers we were discussing that at this time everybody commonly becomes activate and begins to help children. Yes, of course, it is necessary, but we came to the conclusion that the elderly are always forgotten. But they gave us life. We decided to do as we have been taught – to start with ourselves – recalls how it all began Anna.
