24 hours, almost 800 gifts and a great number of amazing people

On August 24, many good deeds were made. Specifically, the number goes up to 798. This is exactly the number of gifts you donated.

Every single non-profit organization at DobraKrajina.sk is engaged in an extremely important work. Whether it is helping disadvantaged people, fighting poverty and corruption or improving education. However, very often it is not that easy and sometimes it requires a great deal of determination. This is the reason why is the support you expressed to non-profit organizations yesterday so important. Every single euro that was collected for non-profit projects during the 24-hour Donation Marathon will not only be used to do good deeds, but it will also mean tremendous support and motivation for non-profit organizations to continue their work. For all of this we would like to express our sincere gratitude to you, our dear donors!

How big was your support?

You only had 24 hours. Exactly from midnight to midnight. But it was clear already during the first hours that you took the relay of the Donation Marathon with great determination. Unbelievable number of 798 gifts in the amount of Euro 8296.52 was given to the projects of the Great Country. This amazing sum was distributed to 63 projects. The highest donation, up to Euro 500 went to the Online Psychological help project.

24 hours, 60 NGOs, 798 donations, 8296.52 €, a lot of people with good heart

In this year’s 24-hour Donation Marathon, the largest help was given to disadvantaged people. The theme “Joyful Life” received a beautiful amount of Euro 4,895.25 which can bring a lot of joy without doubt. You have also shown us that you are interested in education, combating corruption and poverty and in small local initiatives.
