PostSubject: Ideas to Help the Children please   Mon Mar 29, 2010 9:24 pm

As you are all aware now, i have organised a monthly sale in the Kosharitsa Village to help locals and fellow expats sell and promote buisnessor just to come together and provoke some intergaration.

Above all my personal aim is to start helping to the children of Kosharitsa Orphanage but also including the kindergarten children too.

While the kindergarten children are happy with how fortunate they are they do enjoy the cake and colouring competions that we held for them. However the children from the orphanage obviosuly are in desperate need of some further help!

We have been kindly donated a water colour painiting which will be handed over for auction on the 7th. However i think we will be holding the auction of the painting until may/june when we will have more tourists! I feel it will bring more cash donation in maybe? any thoughts on this please?

We have also been donated a bench to go towards the outside apparatus that we working towards raising money for so this is a great headstart!

Freezerman and Jane have also offered some space on their vehicle after a couple of months for other material donations, like clothes, thanks for that guys and they have also given the idea of holding a raffle! They also wanted to do a bbq and donated 50st for every burger sold but we are having some issues with this right now as part of the reason we have the restaurant premises is to up their custome too...so any ideas on how to get around that in the most diplomatic way????

The raffle we were thinking of a meat raffle??? what do you guys think? remembering this must to apeal to the bulgarians too!!!

We have a 5Lv fee also which will go towards the funds we want to raise for the outside apparatus, however we need some more ways to raise money! I have no imagination when it comes to stuff like this and given the economy situation charity really does start at home at the moment!!!

I was thinking maybe a sponsered dress up sale in may??? you know so you could get your friends to sponser you to dress up for the sale....meaning that we can raise money and take donations from people that want to help without them actually needing to come...so we could have donations from Varna from those who can't make it?????? come on guys help me out here i am ready to organise and do everything else but i really needs some ideas and support.....

Thanks everyone......so much.....and after Easter ready for the 7th april next sale we will have pictures of the two story wooden play house that we want to raise money for!

We are also wanting to get the attentions of the tourists too and will be holding an evening in sunnybeach fun night, where participants will dress up and be silly in participating bars in SunnyBeach whilst collecting donations from the tourists, so some ideas of this will be good too, and if anyone is interested lets start talking about when etc etc etc i have the contacts with the bar owners!!!!

Ok thanks and i really eagerly wait all your replies ;

So, the end of the season is here and we have finished with the fundraising in sunnybeach

Soo and Tony March from Ravda, The Boat Inn, will be still be holding a table top with stall selling goods in aid of my appeal. They have helped me to raise funds which will make a significant difference to the children. Thanks guys!!

Fat Kats, our venue for this year, we did fantastic WE SMASHED our target and had donations bought by us sooner than we imagined. Thanks to Micky, the d.j, natalie the manager and Andre also a manager who supported us throughout the summer and joined us in the 50th Anniversary celebrations yesterday at the orphange.

Donaters - this summer i have been over whelmed with the amount of donations, whether it be material or cash donations. You guys are truley generous!!! We have had all sorts and for all age ranges which is truely fabulous, we have also recieved brand new items as well as second hand .....

The donations which have been given are all being organised and getting ready to be taken to the childrens home next week .....

The wooden play house, equipt also for wheelchairs is up and already being played in .... The play gym for the garden for the younger disabled children will also be going up next week ... we are very excited....we meaning me and the kids

Donations are still be gladly recieved ..... even though i will be volunteering in one of the baby orphanages in the Plovdiv area this winter i will still be visiting Kosharitsa every month for sleepovers. So i can do collection pick up of donations throughout winter too .....

Also anyone who wants to donate items throughout bulgaria can do so as i can arrange pick ups now from almost anywhere in Bulgaria....

I would also like to Thanks Frrezerman for his items donated from UK and his and Janes support and help with raising funds and aiding us with FATKATS....

Next year, we have been offered to go back to Fat Kats and also have another possible venue that we will be trying next summer....Bay View Villas.....again thanks to the committee of Bay View Villas for offering their support and donating where and when possible....

So getting back to winter .... we need some HOSTS .... i really would like to get up in Pamporovo and do some fundraising up there, i can do quiz nights, horse racing nights, bingo, english bbq, fancy dress nights, etc etc etc etc ohhh we have pig racing dvd's too .....

If anyone can help with venues in pamps or Plovdiv please get in touch ...... thanks again to EVERYONE .......

Appreciation was given yesterday as we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the childrens home. Soo, Lynne and myself was given a t.v interview, soo, micky and natalie were given thanks and flowers, and andre as well as myself was giving thanks, flowers and certifed certificates .... there were many more that had helped and still are helping. It was an honor to meet such giving people. I had a personal invite from the head of social services adoption HQ in nessebar to joing her for coffee in her offices on monday.... also she wants to meet us with the children and famialies she is working with so maybe we can start working together with her too!!!!

Thans again to everyone, especially the children as without their acceptance of our help we couldn't do what we do!!!
