Features of Tramscarpathian volunteering: tea "Merry partisan" and... fake money

The Movement to support Transcarpathian soldiers report on their achievements: on 6th and 7th of December, marking the Volunteer Day and the Day of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, they held a mini fair at Teatralna Square.

On Sunday, volunteer teas: "Dream of the artillerist", "Merry partisan" and "Ginger - death of a separatist", as well mulled wine "Victory Day" together with the sale of souvenirs, toys and Christmas decorations from volunteers brought 6,600 UAH.

Saturday was no less fruitful. On both days, in addition to volunteer treats, the sale of books and toys at free prices as well as the sale of souvenirs took place.

"During the two days of the fair, we have earned 21,933 UAH for soldiers" - the activist of the Movement Galina Yartseva reports and shows the purchase:

"The diesel generator that we have delivered to our soldiers in the village of Komunna in Donetsk region. The price is 12,000UAH."

However, it was not without trouble.

On Sunday night, two customers, whom volunteers generously treated with mulled wine and sweets, put fake notes into the box and even took the change.

 This is the first and hopefully the last such incident in the history of volunteers' activity.

And given the success of the campaign, Transcarpathian "Bears" (bear is a symbol of the Movement to support our troops) do not plan to stop - new events are ahead.

Watch for announcements and get involved. "Together, we are strong!" - volunteers remind.

Водночас не обійшлося і без прикрощів.

Увечері в неділю двоє покупців, яких волонтери щедро частували глінтвейном і солодощами, кинули у скриньку по фільшивій "сотці", а ще й узяли решту.

"Спасибі, Боже, що узяв грошима!" - резюмує Галина. Таку неприємну ситуацію волонтери спостерігають вперше і, сподіваються, що й востаннє.

А зважаючи на успіхи акцій, бурхливу діяльність, закарпатські "Ведмеді" (саме ведмідь є символом Руху підтримки наших вояків) згортати не планують - на часі нові події.

Стежте за анонсами й долучайтеся. "Разом - сила!" - нагадують волонтери.
