Hospice patients, elderly and lonely Muscovites, as well as members of large and low-income families received gifts.
Muscovites collected 2,300 kilograms of tangerines as part of the Hanging Tangerine New Year campaign. It was held in all the pavilions of the Moscow Fairs.
The essence of the action is consonant with the Italian tradition of caffe sospeso – “suspended” or prepaid coffee for those who cannot afford to buy it now. To participate in the action, it was necessary to purchase one kilogram or a package of tangerines, and pay the second for the wards of verified charitable foundations. Anyone could also pay for such a purchase separately.
Among those who received tangerines were hospice patients, elderly and lonely Muscovites. Members of large and low-income families, mothers and fathers raising children alone, and other trust funds were also pleased with parcels with New Year’s fruits.
“The support and attention of every Muscovite who was not indifferent after learning about the action is important to us. Thanks to “Moscow Fair” for this wonderful, bright, vitamin campaign. On the eve of the New Year, our wards especially need to feel attention to themselves. This gives a lot of strength to cope with difficulties “, – said Alina Kontareva, founder and president of the Center for Assistance to Large Families” MnogoMama “.
The MnogoMama Center supports about 60 thousand families in Moscow and the Moscow region, provides them with charitable assistance, organizes creative and sports family events, and consults with experts in the field of psychology and personal development.
Helpful gifts were also received by the wards of the Rus charity foundation, which since 2012 has been providing food to socially unprotected groups of the population. According to Yulia Nazarova, President of the Foundation, the “Hanging Mandarin” campaign was able to show the townspeople that helping those in need can be done quickly and easily. “On New Year’s Eve, tangerines have become not just a help, but also a special symbol that gives a feeling of a miracle,” she said.
“It is very important for people who celebrate the New Year in a hospice ward to feel that somewhere out there, outside the walls, there are those who are not indifferent to their fate,” said Olga Ebich, manager for work with benefactors of the Vera hospice fund.
The co-organizer of the action is Committee for public relations and youth policy of the city of Moscow…
“The fact that the action received such a response confirms that there are a lot of caring people in our city who are ready for good deeds. “Hanging Mandarin” has become a timely and sought-after action. In the new year, we will definitely continue to create such projects, so that residents of the capital, together with charitable organizations, can help those who cannot cope without support, ”she said.
Ekaterina Dragunova, Chairman of the Moscow Committee for Public Relations and Youth Policy.
Those who did not have enough time to take part in the action can do a good deed and donate a piece of the holiday with the help charity service on the mos.ru portal. This is one of the easiest ways to support non-profit organizations with a one-time donation or on an ongoing basis. Now 60 charitable foundations are connected to the service.
You can make a donation on the main page of the service by selecting an organization and specifying the amount of the donation. In this case, you will not need to log in to mos.ru.
The same function is available in the service. “My payments”– for users authorized on mos.ru, just select the “Charity” line. For those who want to help constantly, there is an auto payment function. You can also transfer money in the My Moscow app: the Charity with mos.ru section and the Donate button are located under the list of accounts. You can make a donation and activate auto payment only if you have a bank card.
