…THE CROWDFUNDING PORTAL KAMOŠI Z WEBU (‟FRIENDS FROM THE WEB”)
In cooperation with the crowdfunding portal Kamoši z Webu (‟Friends from the Web”), established by Ľudia Ľuďom (‟From the People to the People″) has been promising, taking into account its results so far: 4 Community Centres engaged 8 young people from families in difficult economic situations, who needed help with financing their education. Six of the applicants succeeded in raising funds for various purposes such as eye treatment, logopedic care, travel expenses, purchase of glasses, textbooks, and a sewing machine.
…GREAT COUNTRY CROWDFUNDING PORTAL
The cooperation with the Great Country crowdfunding portal has also been promising. We have been raising funds for our clients – builders engaged in the Building Hope project in Rankovce. Individual donors have so far contributed sums ranging from cents up to 500 Euros, totaling 1,248.48 EUR.
…U.S. STEEL – CHRISTMAS STALL
For several years, ETP has participated in the event Christmas in Košice on Košice´s Main Street to offer cute little Christmas gifts crafted in our Community Centres in the U.S. Steel stall carrying a sign: ‟We Help Those Who Need It.” A piece of the children´s hearts can be found in each of the snowmen, angels, decorations and other cute items. During their creation, the children applied their skills and imagination. Throughout the entire day of the event, the works are being offered to the visitors of the Christmas Market for a voluntary contribution. Before Christmas of 2014, all the gifts were sold and the 403,64 Euros collected in our donation box was distributed among the Community Centres afterwards.
We are looking forward to Christmas in Košice 2015.
