Hello, we are children, parents & teachers from Helen Doron Learning Centre Zadar, Croatia.
During the next two weeks, we will be selling our special Young Heroes bracelets in our kindergartens, schools, neighbourhood and among our family members in order to raise funds for the local Down Syndrome Organization.
Furthermore, we will celebrate the end of our Young Heroes project with a big Funfair on April 29th where, together with our EXTRAordinary new friends, we will try to raise awareness for Down Syndrome as well as promote friendship, love and tolerance.
On April 1, 2017 we held a Young Heroes Meeting in our school.
With a little help of their parents, the little ones made beautiful works of art that we will also sell on our Young Heroes Funfair to raise even more funds for our EXTRAordinary friends from our local Down Syndrome Organization.
The Teens made a wonderful Dream Board that is now displayed in our school and keeps us motivated.
On April 29, 2017 we held our Young Heroes Funfair that was a huge success! The students from our school, children from the local Down Syndrome Organization as well as all other children from Zadar who decided to join us, together with their parents, all came together to play, have fun, promote friendship, love and tolerance and raise awareness for Downs Syndrome.
When we started the project, our goal was to sell 1.000 Young Heroes bracelets and raise around 1.300 EUR for the Down Syndrome Organization, however, thanks to the enthusiasm of everyone involved, we managed to raise almost 2.000 EUR! We are proud beyond words of all of our heroes, young and those a bit older :), that made all of this happen!
