Charity Calendar is an annual charity calendar initiated by the CEO of Amillidius Elvira Gavrilova. The project is aimed at ensuring that inmates of orphanages can receive a piece of love and joy on the eve of the New Year holidays.
We spoke with Elvira to learn more about the Charity Calendar 2022.
Elvira, the theme of the calendar changes every year: peoples of the world, seasons, etc. Tell me, what topic has become the main one this year?
Elvira Gavrilova: Of course, we could not help but pay attention to the topic of the pandemic. This is a truly burning problem for the whole world. I myself have had a coronavirus and I know how hard it is. Therefore, I would like to once again emphasize the importance of this issue in our charitable calendar. Charity Calendar 2022 has become themed thanks to the natural flower masks created by the designer Julia Lyatavskaya.
What is the purpose of your project?
Elvira Gavrilova: Our goal is to attract as many people as possible to the problems of children in orphanages. All the money from the implementation of the bright glossy Charity Calendar goes to charity – for gifts to children on St. Nicholas Day or Christmas. This year we are planning to visit orphanages for St. Nicholas Day and give children a little bit of a miracle.
Tell us who became a participant in the project.
Elvira Gavrilova: Members of the Charity Calendar are famous adults and children who are not indifferent to the fate of small wards of orphanages. Once a year, they get together for a thematic photo shoot at the Charity Calendar.
