More and more Father Frostís helpers: Yakutsk citizens bring holiday to children's homes

New Year - a holiday celebrating in the family circles in Russia – is coming. However, some children are deprived of parental care and love for various reasons. So, Yakutsk has launched a charity campaign Helpers of Ded Moroz (Father Frost) to present such children the spirit of the holiday and magic.

Every Child Must Get a New Year Gift is the logo of young activists, whose goal is to bring the holiday spirit to children's homes. During the November, the Yakutsk Youth Union has collected children's letters with different wishes for the New Year written to Father Frost. Until December 22, children’s wishes from letters will be fulfilled: the organizers, sponsors and any citizens are taking the letters and buying gifts for the orphans.
