The “kindliness cards” compaign gathers momentum. This year a charity sale and money collection for Special Needs School will end on 27th November. The event will take place in Cuprum Arena Shopping Centre.

The most beautiful cards were chosen on 3rd November. The winner of the contest is a second-form pupil – 9 years old Marcel Sarafin. 11 young artists were awarded and won prizes. The third edition enjoyed great popularity, organizers got over a hundred art works. 

PeBeKa consistently supports Special Needs School, both as part of volunteer work, and other undertakings. The constest is the way of multifaceted help for school. Firstly, it activates children to be creative in art and helps them to belive that they have got multiple talents appreciated not only by their teachers. The main prize is of course a printout of the most beautiful card and the edition will be bigger tha last year – 6,000 items. The pupils have possibility to win attractive prizes, such as rucksacks or school equipements. Secondly – this compaign is a financial way to support school – money from sold cards will be alloted to equip classrooms for vocational subjects. 

- Vocational subjects, such as the art of cooking is difficult to learn without any equipment – says Jacek Kulicki the President of PeBeKa – thanks to large-scale money collection, the school will have a chance to buy essential equipment and children will be given equal opportunity for better education. 
I am glad, especially as we got new partners this year’s compaign. Cuprum Arena, one of the biggest shopping centre in Lubin, and Lubin Reginal Television were involved to hold this charity event – he emphasized.

PeBeKa already today invites all people of goodwill to Cuprum Arena. On special stand on 27th November in the afternoon everybody will be able to buy a winning Christmas Card and support school this way. As a part of school’s help there will be also money collection, art exhibition and children artistic performance.

PeBeKa also invites all interested firms and institutions to take part in “Christmas cards of kindliness”compaign. Buying a special christmas card and sending them to the Clients, for sure it could be the way to make their contribution to educational development for children from Special Needs School.
