GOLDEN PRIZE "DONOR OF THE YEAR"
The "Bistra and Galina" Hotel-Foundation closed its charity initiative "Christmas Campaign 2010" for the sale of Christmas and New Year greeting cards. By tradition the action was held under the motto "All for a Smile on a Child's Face". The proceeds will be allotted to the organisation of the successive Children's Summer Academy "Bistra and Galina" 2010 and to the programmes of the Foundation. One of the greeting cards, as of old, presents a view of Rousse – a picture by the artist Ralitsa Kirilova, and the rest are the work of a designer team. The total sum of the proceeds of this year's initiative amounted to 4004 BGN. Despite the difficulties that many companies and organisations in the city have suffered this year, the team of the "Bistra and Galina" Hotel-Foundation can gladly state that all who were willing to help and have good hearts contributed to the campaign in the name of the children of Rousse. We are most grateful that they supported this charity campaign and the work of the Foundation as a whole. The company that bought the greatest number of greeting cards this year is "ROUSSE-GAS" PLC with manager Engineer Radoslav Zhechev, who received the gold prize with the two intertwined hearts "Donor of the Year" and an address of gratitude. This prize, which is presented personally by the Chairperson of the "Bistra and Galina" Foundation Ms. Zdravka Burdarova, is a sincere gesture towards the people who appreciate the charity work of the Foundation and believe that "All for a Smile on a Child's Face" is an expedient expression of empathy of many people.
