The Kind People Festival, a large outdoor event organized by the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation, will take place at Muzeon Park on August 29 through September 6. Diema’s Dream Fund will be one of 40 participating foundations which the funds collected at the festival will be transferred to.
The motto of this year’s festival is “Let’s do good together!”, meaning that the special attention will be paid to charity. Our fund will arrange two workshops at the Festival – a creative workshop and canis-therapy event. At each of them we briefly describe the programs and projects of our fund that allow us and the donors – people and companies – to help people, and how to join us.
On the first day of the festival, August 29 – the Day of Charitable Foundations – we will have a creative workshop at 3 p.m. for children aged 7 to 10 years old. A friend of our fund Elina Gritchina, the author of several popular on-line courses on art history, will talk about impressionism and other trends in art. During the workshop, children will also try to draw pictures in the styles of Claude Monet and Kandinsky.
And on September 6 at 2 p.m. we will host amazing therapy dogs from the ‘Sunny Dog’ canis-therapy group of the Autonomous Non-Commercial Organization Educational and Cynological Center ‘Assistant Dogs for Disabled People’. It is a good opportunity to learn about this method of helping children with severe and multiple developmental problems.
The festival is expected to become one of the largest events of this summer – last year it was attended by some 400 000 people.
40 foundations will be represented at the Festival to tell the guests about their activities and how to start helping people in need. The organizers of the Festival noted that every fund was thoroughly reviewed and selected by a team of experts.
Interactive workshops and games aimed at educating guests on social assistance will also take place.
Guests will have the opportunity to donate to the funds participating in the event. As part of the event, there will also be a fundraising campaign for charitable foundations affected by the pandemic. Anyone can support them by sending a text message indicating a donation amount (for example, ‘100’) to number 2090 or transfer the donation by following the link: https://festoprf.nuzhnapomosh.ru
