AmCham Thanksgiving Charity Mission 2020
Date(s) - 26/11/2020 - 23/12/2020
You all know that for the 15th year BCause Foundation (a proud AmCham member) gives out the “Get Ready to Succeed” scholarships to excellent students and pupils in the 11th and 12th grades. During the 2020-2021 Academic Year, a total of 88 young people (24 of them double orphans or raised at institutions) have become grantees. In 2020 BCause prioritized students studying Medicine and Nursing and gave scholarships to 33 of them: 26 – Medicine, 3 – Nursing, 1 – Medical Physics, 3 – Dental Practice. Many of them are volunteering at COVID wards throughout the country now.
In that program, AmCham Bulgaria has been partnering with BCause Foundation for more than a decade now. Our members have supported more than 150 students through the years – directly or via the famous Thanksgiving Charity Dinner. Now we all can switch to something more practical and inspiring: you and your companies can donate directly to this cause.
Thanksgiving will always be about family and friends. It is about expressing our gratitude to people who helped us, and it is about giving to those in need.
The pandemic should not let the spirit of doing good fade, should it? Even in a semi-lockdown we can do good for those who are our future medical doctors and nurses. Therefore, we would like to inspire you and your companies to support the fund raising for scholarships of orphans or semi-orphans who are studying medical specialties in Bulgaria. This will be our investment in their future to stay in Bulgaria,” said Olivier Marquette in his Thanksgiving message to members.
Combining efforts and funds we can make a difference by investing in the future of medical workers of Bulgaria. So, please use the bank account to transfer your donation. The BCause Foundation team will facilitate the logistics and will provide the report in the process.
“Every year AmCham members support talented young people of Bulgaria with the Get Ready to Succeed scholarship fund. Some 30 of them are medical doctors and nurses, who now joined the COVID-19 frontline. They proved not only excellent students but also committed people and strong personalities. We need your support to continue to stand next to them and support them!” says Elitsa Barakova, BCause Foundation.
