A special occasion? An anniversary?  Ask your friends  to make a small donation towards Filarakia Elladas – Best Buddies Greece!

 

Donations in memory

You may ask us to attend a funeral  event of a loved person, so we can gather donations in the donations box of the organization instead of reefs.  Just think that your donation instead of reefs will help the organization offer to more persons the gift of a supporting friendship and their participation in more day to day activities and events.

 

Donations of goods and services from people and also companies

You may help offering new items as well as services which are useful  for our work and also for our participants. Here are some examples:

  • Dinners at restaurants for our lottery drawings at events
  • Bakery items and sweets for events of our groups and for lottery drawings of gifts at our events
  • Food items for our group gatherings and events
  • Hotel reservations for lottery drawings at our events
  • Travel tickets for lottery drawings in our events
  • Computers, laptops for use in our offices and for lottery drawings.

Even more you could offer items for sale in our bazaars, for lottery tickets or any other items offering income to our organization.

In this way even more persons will be supported to make life supporting friendships and to participate in social events that build on social inclusion of our target group.
