Charity Tasting - Donation Confirmation
Money was raised and money was delivered!
I would like to once again GREATLY thank everyone that contributed to this cause. It took a while to deliver the money because there were many people who contributed without even having attended the tasting which I did not expect at all. So I had to wait for their contributions as well!
I'm very touched that this topic that isn't very spoken about or frankly, cared about, resonated with so many individuals. It's cynical to talk about 'charity preferences' of people because any help is always appreciated but the care for older people, the way older people are integrated into society, included in the conversation, it's not a popular topic. Thankfully, as the general age of the population and life expectancy increases, it's becoming a topic that people won't be able to ignore for much longer as "older" people become more heard and confident in their voices. Being grateful doesn't begin to describe what I feel.
We managed to raise exactly 1200,- Euros that were split 600,- and 600,- between Slovak organization Aktivny Senior and Czech organization 'Hura na Vylety'.
The reaction to the donations has been overwhelmingly positive - 'Hura na Vylety' will be able to organize one full fledged trip from the donation as well as greatly helping the day to day running of the organization.
Thank you and till next time beautiful people.
