Sometimes we get so caught up with our daily routine that we forget how little it takes to make a difference. Join us as we take on another campaign of fundraising and meet us live when we deliver the necessary medical equipment to parents, medical staff and child therapists, but also gifts to lighten up children currently being hospitalized or rehabilitated.
Seeing the result of your campaign? There's no greater feeling than that.
Who are we?
IT employees, colleagues, co-workers with a vision of fundraising and obtaining necessary equipment to various children's hospital departments, here in Zagreb, Croatia. A lot of teamwork is involved, since we organize everything ourselves - from selectin and purchasing to delivery.
The story behind it
Our first and only campaign so far was totally spontaneous and a total success - when budget for a co-workers' Secret Santa outgrew the office and turned into a huge donation for a child neurology department in Zagreb, providing necessary medical devices, equipment and gifts for children.
Who are we supporting?
Hospitalized children and their parents, medical staff, child physiotherapist organizations. Unfortunate parents sometimes travel couple hundred kilometers a week for regular physiotherapy sessions to major cities, so let's help as much as we can. Typical monthly expenses for such parents are (real-life example taken from Facebook):
- rented condo in another city - 3000kn
- child rehab physio sessions for 10 days - 2000kn
- medications - 400kn
- special Peptamen food - 900kn
- rehab accessories (Z-vibe, roller..) - 400kn
- travel and food expenses for parents .... do we need to say more?!
They make a wishlist, and with your help - we can make it happen.
