„The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention”   (Oscar Wilde)

Winter holidays are the ones that bring joy to everyone, it is the time of gifts, beautiful childhood memories and of tomorrow’s hopes. It is the celebration when we open our hearts, which is why the Association “FILOCALIA” comes with the desire to make people happier, more fulfilled and less sad and lonely and invites you to join us. Together we can give them a brighter Christmas.

This year we are at the 9 edition of the wonderful campaign „be a santa for someone!”, initiated the 20 of November 2019 and lasting until 7 of January 2020. The campaign has as a purpose to support people in need, to involve children in various charity actions, by involving them and also by promoting volunteering as a form of civic activism.
This year’s beneficiaries of our campaign are 500 children, 30 families and 60 elderly from the following localities: Costeşti, Ialoveni; Coşniţa, Dubăsari, Zguriţa, Drochia, Hârbovăţ, Călăraşi, Drăguşeni, Redeni, Străşeni, Cotiujenii Mari, Şoldăneşti, Sângerei, Șoldanești, Chişinău, Comrat, Carpineni, Hâncești.

Within the campaign the following actions are planned:”Help a person!” – charity action where a concept is developed: „gift fom gift”, where each child has the opportunity to bring as a gift toys, sweets, fruits, etc to a less fortunate child, promoting the idea of being a Santa for someone.
The action ”Santa Claus for a grandparent”, with the slogan: „You bought a gift – you helped an elderly”, is about collecting financial support for the elderly people from Asylums. Also the elderly would witness a concert of winter carols organized by the children’s church choir from the social center ”St. Filaret the Merciful”.
The activity „A Christmas for everyone” is about socially vulnerable children’s involvement in activities like: theatre shows, festive meals etc organized especially for them involving volunteers.
Let’s be generous! Join our team and become a Santa for someone, for a child or for an elderly. You don’t know them, and they don’t know you, but you can make them happy!
