What is “Bulgaria Donates” and why is charity important?
Education, children at risk, environment, culture, people with disabilities and addiction, human rights. 75 causes in these important for our society areas are looking for support in the second edition of the national campaign for popularization and encouragement of donating “Bulgaria Donates”.
From March 22 until March 31 everyone can easily find information about and choose a cause they feel close to on the website of “Bulgaria Donates”. There are different payment options to choose from including bank transfer, DMS, ePay, PayPal, Platformata.bg and others. There is no right amount to give – every contribution is precious. When many people unite and participate change becomes possible.
“Bulgaria Donates” is a nationwide initiative, which popularizes and encourages giving to charity. It gives an equal chance to NGOs countrywide to present their causes on its website bulgariadaviava.bg.
The included causes are seeking and finding solutions, changing people’s destinies and the environment we are living in. The causes have been preselected and the organizations that carry them out have to be registered as civil organizations in public interest. They should also have prior experience and should have provided their financial reports to guarantee transparency.
“Bulgaria Donates” aims to reach as many people as possible, to tell inspiring stories and to show the impact of the non-profit organizations, while giving everyone the opportunity to contribute to a better future.
In its first edition in 2019 in only 10 days “Bulgaria Donates” collected more 50 000 BGN from close to 2700 individual donors. Many Bulgarian celebrities supported the initiative and donated themselves. Among them were Maxim Eshkenazy, Zahari Karabashliev, Alek Aleksiev, Robin Kafaliev, Yana Marinova, Elena Rosenberg and others.
Everyone who chooses to donate to a cause in “Bulgaria Donates” will contribute to transforming Bulgaria into a better place for living. “Giving is important, because giving is sharing, and sharing makes us human”, said a girl from the English Language School of Sofia during the first edition of “Bulgaria Donates”.
12 organizations, united around the idea to encourage individual donating, initiated “Bulgaria Donates” project. These are Bulgarian Charity Forum, The Bulgarian Center for Not-for-Profit Law, Bulgarian Fund For Women, BCause Foundation, Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award – Bulgaria, National Network for Children, “Teach For Bulgaria” Foundation, Maria’s World Foundation, WWF Bulgaria, “Workshop for civil initiatives” Foundation and UNICEF.
