Share the joy of spring with charities
Giving for Latvia (reg. charity no. 1161932)
Established in 2009 by a group of young Latvian professionals working in London, the aim of Giving for Latvia is to provide aid to children and parents in Latvia, who have suffered from emotional and physical abuse, and to those disadvantaged by age, disability, financial problems and other hardships.
100% of donations are used to issue grants (€1,500-500 each) to children crisis centres, special needs kids associations and charities that care for children and parents in Latvia, buying educational and special needs equipment, paying for day trips for underpriviledged children, etc.
We have developed a handful of projects and would be very keen to bring these to life. To achieve this we have organised a special Spring Charity Pledge Appeal to you, our kind donors. Please support vulnerable families in Latvia, by donating towards projects aimed at development and wellbeing.
Our pioneer corporate donor Opal Transfer (www.opaltransfer.com) has committed to match selected donations.
