June 1st marks a very special day in Polish calendars. It is not just the beginning of summer, but it is also a day to celebrate children.
This Children’s Day, we would like to take a moment to not just celebrate but also to support those children and mothers who have not had an easy life, who have escaped violence or overcome hardship and are now starting a new chapter in their lives.
Together with the Polish charity, House of Single Mothers, we are organizing a donations collection in Warsaw, Łódź, Kraków, Katowice, Poznań, Wrocław, and Gdańsk, Katowice to help mothers and children in need
What can you donate?
Any donation is appreciated, but the following items are especially appreciated:
- Baby feeding products (Bebilon 1,2,3 milk; Nan 1,2,3 milk);
- Food (long shelf-life products)
- Bedsheets, blankets, towels
- Pampers, 4, 5
- Toys for 2-10 years old kids (balls, dolls, LEGO…)
