Celebrities were packing and delivering holiday boxes side by side Holiday Heroes’ volunteers on the very first day of Christmas 2014 campaign’s final leg.
For many December 18th was probably just another Thursday. But for hundreds of others it was a day set aside for a worthy mission—Holiday Heroes Christmas campaign. At break of day scores of volunteers got down to packing the food boxes at the warehouse provided for free by Holiday Heroes partner Bers Logistics. Among the dozens of eager volunteers one could see actors Ivo Tonchev and Ivaylo Zahariev, and Holiday Heroes’ mastermind Michael Straumietis.
Just hours later the first cars, including a van for the families of the town of Miziya who suffered a flood earlier this year, set out, loaded with boxes, for the homes of the needy. Many of Holiday Heroes’ celebrity goodwill ambassadors once again engaged in Holiday Heroes’ charitable effort. Pop singer Tony and volleyball player Evgeni “The Gun” Ivanov stopped by the home of a young couple living with their two disabled children and their grandma. Radio and TV presenter Iva Doychinova and actor Ivo Tonchev for their part brought joy to a single mother of four, the oldest of whom with severe disabilities, while Bulgarian pop-folk singer Aneliya visited Gergana—a single mother of a 22-year old seriously ill son.
