Volunteers from Carlsberg – Bulgaria and Bulstrad Vienna Insurance Group generously provided a workforce and materials for cheering up the corridors of the complex using stencils and splashes of vibrant colours.
Some lent a hand by helping to make Christmas cards to help continue the tradition of internal fundraising during the festive season.
The volunteers brought gifts – t-shirts and baseball caps – and soon the children resembled football teams. It all added to the colour and holiday atmosphere.
Corporate volunteering in Bulgaria is encouraged and supported by the Bulgarian Charities Aid Foundation. This organization is trying to establish a stable platform on which to build relationships between commercial organizations and NGOs and Equilibrium’s 2010 Christmas cards sale campaign was funded on the basis of one if its initiatives.
