Midsummer DREAMUP Fest by BNP Paribas Foundation Bulgaria

What three organizations could do together in the sake of a Child’s Smile?

On June 25, volunteers from BNP Paribas, International Women’s Club (IWC) and The IBike.bg Company visited the children living in the Family-type center in Dren village. The big surprise of the day was the arrival of a bus with bicycles labeled with the name of each kid. The bicycles were collected and repaired by the IBike.bg Company during the 3rd edition of the “Bicycle for Every Child 2017” campaign.

The children tested their gifts in a bicycle race and at the end of the party they send their wishes in the sky written on balloons.

The initiative is a good example for win-win partnership among three organizations with common goals – Foundation BNP Paribas, IWC and The IBike.bg Company:
– The DREAMUPProject by Foundation BNP Paribas gave the opportunityto the kids from the Family-type center in Dren village to raise BGN 600 during the Charity Bazaar of the IWC selling their art works created during the regular art lessons under the DreamUP Project;
bg Company agreed to repair and provide 21 bicycles to the kids for that amount; and
Foundation BNP Paribas and the IWC supported partially the campaign “Bicycle for Every Child 2017”, which provided bicycles to more than 100 kids in foster families (except the kids in Dren).

To all our little friends, we wish you Sunny Summer!!!
