This year's "Buy a date" campaign will help both children, and the army
The charity project "Buy a date - help those in need" started on November 5 and will run until December 5. The activists promise to divide the proceeds from the "sales of dates" 50/50 and to use them for the needs of orphans and Transcarpathian soldiers participating in the ATO.
The "Buy a date - help those in need" project under the slogan "Do not ask what the country has done for you, ask yourself what you have done for the country" was launched by Transcarpathian activists on November 5 in the social network Vkontakte - the Zakarpattya online informed.
This is the annual charity auction of dates, after which the activists use the funds raised in the course of the project to help orphans feel the Christmas holidays.
"However, this year, due to the special military operation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to counter Putin's chauvinistic imperialism, we have started the campaign to raise funds for the most urgent needs of the troops, in particular our Transcarpathian soldiers. Despite the strong volunteer movement outside of our campaign, we decided to promote donations specifically for the military in the format of the campaign" - the administrators of the thematic community inform.
They also inform that targets of the funds raised will be determined upon completion of the campaign, however, they point out that it has been resolved that "the funds will be divided 50/50 - 50% for orphans and 50% for our soldiers."
After the campaign, the organizers promise to publish detailed financial report. The auction will last from November 5 to December 5. Anyone can take part in the campaign - either as a "lot" or as a buyer.
The rules are the same: "lots" send their photos with brief information that are then posted in albums. Buyers, in turn, if they want to have a date with a particular "lot", make their bids.
