My name is Ivanka Ivanova, a Bulgarian folk singer. I am writing you on behalf of

Our main mission is to help people in unequal social status – disabled, poor, single mothers, etc. as giving them chance to live a sensible live through social contacts, work and art.
I would like to apologize for bothering you, but I truly believe that we will find compassionate people to help us fulfill our mission; otherwise, without your support, it is doomed not to reach its end.
We would be glad to have your respond to this request. We are open for all your support, whether financial, related to the repair the roof construction or material / yarn, lace, beads, buttons, machines and equipment to work with paper, textile and possible procurement of our products.
If you are able to support us in this regard, please contact us. For your donation will receive: Act of Donation, a protocol with a record on what you have donated, a thankful letter, and articles/ photos about your donation in the Bulgarian media.
May God support us for our work and find good, conscientious people to help us with anything:
We urgently need to repair the roof and ceiling of the room in which daily take place art occupations.
I am sending you a small presentation at first. If you are interested, please let me know, and I will provide you with a more detailed one.

The foundation acquired its own building in 2005, provided by the Municipality of Pazardjik for 10 years using it for free.
From the beginning, the condition of the building is in wretched form. We are repeatedly replacing tiles, but the problem remains unresolved, because of the rotten roof and roof structure. After recent heavy snowfalls this winter (2010), part of the roof sag, and there is a danger to collapse over one of the premises.
To restore and maintain would cost us more than we can afford. Due to open programs, lack of donors and nonprofit organizations, the Global crisis and shrinking municipal budgets, the Municipality is unable to provide funds for repair and we are forced to bother you.
We have several supporters; we managed to create minimum conditions for everyday work- electricity supply, our own water meter, partial construction of a bathroom with materials at hand, some old furniture, equipment and purchases for making cards , souvenirs and hand made products.
The products we make:
Cards- Christmas, New Year’s, Birthday cards, Name’s day Cards and for a wedding.
Bulgarian souvenirs, called Martenitsa
Souvenirs decorated with – bottles, vases, pen boxes, belts, key rings and more.
Christmas toys and decorations – wood, crocheted, cones,
Painted Easter eggs
Handmade gift bags, gift packages in different sizes.
Handmade mosaic pictures made from natural materials.
We will be happy to find in your face partners and friends! Tell us your wishes and we will find the methods to be helpful. We’ll be glad to send you pictures of our handmade souvenirs. We also have a website developed by volunteers, so we will be able to show you what we have easily.
