Charity Calendar is an annual charity calendar created at the initiative of Elvira Gavrilova, CEO of the international advertising company Amillidius, and to help children in orphanages. The goal of the Charity Calendar project is to raise money for charity. Every year Elvira and her team help children from different orphanages. As a rule, this is Odessa, since one of the central offices of Amillidius is located there.
Elvira, as far as we know, the theme of this year’s calendar is coronavirus. Why did you choose this particular theme and how did you implement it?
- Elvira Gavrilova: It seems to me that at this stage there is no more important problem than a pandemic. We wanted to draw people’s attention to the coronavirus, but to do it creatively. Therefore, Julia Lyatavskaya and I had an idea to sew protective masks from fresh flowers.
Who became a participant of this issue?
- Elvira Gavrilova: The participants were famous Ukrainians who are not indifferent to the fate of children. These are famous women and children who gathered for a thematic photo session. All the money from the implementation of our project goes to charity.
