It is possible to hear Estonian Academy of Music and Theater’s String Orchestra on 5th of February at 3 PM during the concert with free entrance in Swedish St. Michael’s Church where in 2017 we are gathering donations for Tallinn and Harju County Union of Large Families in the context of the good deed initiative “OPEN YOUR EYES, POEN YOUR HEART”.
From 2006 the festival has taken notice of the people in need in our society. During the years, we have helped Käo Center for Disabled Children to train music therapists and buy instruments, we have helped to cover daily driving costs of NGO Nirk, we have supported the purchase of musical instruments for Saaremaa’s (Saare County) children. Through the Instruments Fund created by PLMF Music Trust we have supported many talented Estonian interprets and children who are starting their studies in music schools to buy quality instruments.
The Union of Large Families needs a new van for the families for daily trips to buy food, which costs 30500€.
The existing van has done a wildly good job having transported over 1,5 million kilograms of food and other necessities, but at this point it is costly to keep maintaining it and it has also grown too small. With the help of the new van we are opening an opportunity for large families to manage their lives in a better way.
HELP US HELP OTHERS!
If you feel that you would like to contribute to the purchase of the new van, then buy a ticket from Piletilevi
