Evening of the Virtues

31 October, 2022 19:30, Sofia Event Center, Paradise Mall

For Our Children Foundation is pleased to invite you to the 13th edition of the Evening of the Virtues on October 31 (Monday) at 19:30 in Sofia Event Center. 

Since our establishment in 1992, we have had one main mission – to create conditions for development and happy childhood. For the past 30 years, thanks to the support of hundreds of partners, we have touched the world of over 20 000 children and their families. 

One of the highest forms of philanthropy which we encounter each year occurs during the Evening of the Virtues. An event that brings together seemingly different people united around a common cause – supporting early childhood development. These people are our Childhood Guardians – the modern superheroes who directly – in their capacity as social workers, psychologists, rehabilitators, speech therapists, etc., or indirectly – as donors and volunteers, help the children of Bulgaria to live in a safe family environment. Anyone can become one of these Guardians by supporting our cause by attending the event, donating in another form or promoting our cause. 

The entire amount of the charity ticket (BGN 200) is a donation to the cause of the foundation. With the funds raised during Evening of the Virtues, we will support 2,500 young children and their families in 2023.

You can pay the amount online using the button below (please, mention “EV” next to your name), as well as by bank transfer with the basis for payment “Evening of Virtues 2022” to a donation account: BG32 RZBB 9155 1060 5337 67.

Please confirm your attendance by October 21th, 2022 on 0882 428 323 or charity@detebg.org.

Host of the charity auction
"The only thing we can't buy is time. From all the stolen moments of the quiet timelessness during all these years I collected one word uttered by Vanya Shalapatova. Her every word was a tear. Tear of hope, love, hope, exaltation, longing, humility and sorrow. I keep them. They pulsate in me. Virtue is the word, probably derived from "good" and "child", and for the end there is a letter "L". Like "Love."

“What are the family holidays? A way to feel that we are not alone, that we are loved. This is what For Our Children Foundation brings to thousands in need. And to me personally, the foundation gives me another family holiday in the annual calendar - Evening of the Virtues. I will be there again this year. And this year I will feel the love and the feeling of community again. The next day, the holiday will be over, and the people the Foundation will return to those 364 days of the year in which care is expressed in concrete, everyday events. I am grateful for them!"

Ivan Angelov

"I will teach you to put a paper boat in the river"
I will lift you up to climb that tree…
I will wrap your bare feet…
Because only you can put a smile on my face,
a lump in my throat and a warmth in my heart…
And one day, a day near or far,
you will be the river, you will be the tree, you will be the blanket… "
