In the first half of May, Children’s Palliative Care Society organises charity campaign “Tree of Angels blossoms”. The idea of the campaign is to offer plants of beautifully blossoming trees and bushes in turn to donations in support to home care for incurably ill children. The campaign will take place at different events and popular meeting points of the Latvian gardeners. Stands of the charity campaign can be found at Plant parade in Sigulda (1-2 May), at the National Botanic garden fair at Salaspils (16 May), as well as at different shopping centers.
“Tree of Angels blossoms” is the charity campaign which will for the second year in a row in the beginning of May offer plants of beautifully blossoming trees and bushes in turn to donations. Everyone who obtains such plant will support a family with incurably ill child. The tree will be growing and the family will have more resources to fight against the bad illness. With the support of the Latvian plant growers several hundreds of beautifully blossoming plants have been donated. In the stands of the campaign everyone will be able to obtain fruit trees and berry bushes, as well as beautifully blossoming ornamental plants that will delight one’s eyes and heart.
“Tree of Angels blossoms” charity stands can be found:
In addition to selling plants for donations, there will happen also exclusive plant auction on 16 May at National Botanic garden.On 10 May at 15:00, charity concert-ceremony in honour of Mother’s Day will take place at the Riga Dome Cathedral. Everyone is welcome to support families also by calling phone number 90006588 and donating EUR 1.42 for the campaign.
The stands of the campaign can be recognised by visual design, and the trees – by angel figure in their branches. All the donations that will be collected from selling the trees will be used to help families and children in the difficult fight against incurable illnesses.
The campaign will be organised within the framework of the EEA project “Strengthening the capacity of the Children’s Palliative Care Society” (No.2012.EEZ/DAP/MAC/104/1/NAC/038).
