On October 20th the employees from CMS Sofia law firm visited The Cedar Foundation’s Small Group Homes in the town of Kyustendil. As part of their team building event they spent an unforgettable day with the children and young adults, playing, laughing, learning.
It was a very special day for us at Cedar since it also marked the 7th birthday of SGHs “Siyanie’’ and the 2nd birthday of the Centre for Social Rehabilitation and Integration “Sineva”.
In the morning the children welcomed the lawyers and gave them a special guided tour of the houses. Later, all of them took part in a series of sports activities and games such as sack race and tire rolling. Everyone competed with determination and lots of smiles. At the end, the captains of each team received gold cups whereas the most useful players were rewarded with special certificates.
The fun continued with the celebration of Cedar’s double birthday at a local sweets shop called “Chamapions”. The CMS team was greeted with a special folk dance performance prepared by the kids, followed by an enormous cake and lots of music, dances and great mood.
The CMS employees had prepared a lot of presents for the kids, among which books and toys and a pair of soccer goals that were assembled on the spot and immediately put to use. The CMS team had also initiated a fundraising campaign among their colleagues and raised close to 10 000 BGN in support of Cedar’s mission in Kyustendil.
We thank you, CMS, for the great initiative and for making our children’s celebration unique and full of joy!
