This Christmas we wanted to share with you what the most important things are when working with unprivileged people – attention, time and patience. We at Cedar believe that good happens when people find and choose the form of support that feels closest to them. And during the last few weeks you – our partners and friends – donated resources, time and effort and proved that while it can be a difficult mission, donating care is possible.
More than 300 pieces of cake were baked and sold, over 150 Christmas chocolate balls were decorated, and dozens of Christmas carols were sung to an audience of proud and excited parents just before the holidays. All of this in support of Cedar’s children and young people. Over 200 families stood in front of our photographers’ cameras for a charity photo shoot with Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus. A woman knitted a scarf until 4 AM to sell it at a charity bazaar in our support. The Cedar Foundation was the cause of charity brunches, lunches, sales, Christmas parties, and workshops. We were supported by companies and individuals, some of whom were with us for a first year, while others— for yet another.
Cedar’s team would like to thank VMWare, Westum, International House Sofia, Bulgaria Mall, Canon, Soho café, Ocado, OnProcess Technology, British School of Sofia, JC Decaux, Lufthansa Technik Sofia, City Mark Art Center, “Veselite Kambanki” Kindergarten, Ishy Bakery and Friends, the “Mati Bolgaria” Primary School in Kazanlak, Nu Boyana, Violeta Apostolova- Leti, Anton Draganov, Simeon Salov, and everyone whose thoughts were with us.
