On the eve of September 1, the Vera Hospice Foundation launched a charitable action “Children instead of Flowers”, supported by Ivan Urgant, Ingeborga Dapkunaite, Pelageya, Monetochka and other Russian stars. Its essence is to not spend money on a large number of bouquets that pupils annually give teachers on Knowledge Day, and buy one large bouquet and saved money to donate to the fund or the children’s hospice “House with a lighthouse.”
Russian stars recorded short videos about the sick children who need help and called for participation in a campaign aimed at helping them.
All children bring flowers to school. One flower each. And on the line they fold these flowers into one bouquet and give to their beloved teacher. And the money that could be spent on bouquets, parents are transferred to the fund for help to the hospices “Vera” or the children’s hospice “House with a lighthouse.” And money is bought for this device for breathing, drugs are bought, comfortable carriages are bought. Babysitting services that allow parents to relax are paid. And children who are in intensive care have the opportunity to move home and spend time with their families. There is still much, much, much good,
– says Ivan Urgant.
Dear students, dear parents of students! I understand that you are going to buy flowers for the teacher. But! Suddenly you decide to give one bunch from the whole class? And the rest of the money you wanted to spend on bouquets, you spend on children who need help, they are terminally ill. Your help will not wither!
– refers to the public Ingeborga Dapkunaite.
On this day, many children will come to the school line and bring one flower each, which together will be folded into one big beautiful bouquet for their teacher. And the money that their parents could spend on the purchase of other bouquets, it will be possible to transfer to the fund “Vera”. Thus, the fund will be able to help a huge number of seriously ill children. Children will not be able to live in intensive care, but at home, communicate with their friends, travel by wheelchair to school. Most importantly, this assistance will not wither,
– explains Pelagia, why it is so important to support this action.
The Vera Foundation offers each of the pupils of a class to buy one flower and give the teacher one big beautiful bouquet. And all the money that you will save in this way – to transfer to the support fund for seriously ill children. You can find out about the successes of the last year on the website of the Vera Foundation, but the point is that many sick children get new opportunities for themselves. This year, these children can become even more. Join and you,

Julia Menshova, Valdis Pelsh, Evgeny Stychkin, Maria Shalaeva and Dasha Melnikova also recorded similar video messages. And Alena Doletskaya and Alexander Gudkov supported this action in their Instagram-accounts.
Moms, dads and children! And you know that advanced teachers and parents agreed a couple of years ago that you do not need to bring thirty bouquets on September 1! All the same wither in a day. I ask: let’s just bring one flower, put it in one bouquet and give it to the teacher. The money saved in this way will be sent to children who are seriously ill. Children now have the opportunity to breathe, live at home, do not feel pain, walk and even go to school. Join the action # children in the place of the flowers. Your help will not wither,
