For Our Children foundation won the Best NGO Campaign prize at the 10th annual Together Awards of the Workshop for Civic Initiatives Foundation.
For Our Children was distinguished for the second edition of its charitable campaign dubbed It Is You Who Work Wonders This Christmas. It challenged the employees of 42 companies from the country and abroad to hold various fundraising activities. The campaign raised BGN 28,464 which benefited newborns at risk of abandonment, finding and training foster parents and providing an alternative family environment to children who cannot stay in their biological families.
All winners received a handmade lamp by Nikolay Tabakov at an official ceremony in Vivacom Art Hall. They were awarded by the jury chaired by Ombudsman Konstantin Penchev.
"Thanks to this campaign, employees of 42 companies came to realise the meaning of their support. For our team it was a real pleasure to see hundreds of people join in with great enthusiasm, zeal and willingness to help. The satisfaction with which they left the campaign was a real prize for us. This "light" is not only a reward for the Foundation team who works hard, but for all those people who were involved as contributors and realised that the support of each person is valuable”, said Sonia Glavova, communications and social responsibility expert upon accepting the award.
The 10th Together Awards were awarded in the following categories: best campaign, most effective campaign, best campaign of an NGO, best cooperation between businesses and NGOs, and individual donor with a cause. Media awards were granted in 4 categories: journalism, print media, electronic media, and the Civil Opinion Provoking Debate special prize.
This year's nominees included various charitable initiatives in education, health, sports, integration of people with intellectual disabilities, challenging stereotypes, human rights and many others. The Best Cooperation of Business and NGO category was the most popular one.
