HOSPISS LV

We recommend to watch! Interview with our volunteer Zane Eniņa

Hospiss LV volunteer Zane Eniņa addressed to her friends on her name day and invited them to give her one kilometer in the Indian Ocean instead of flowers - www.airemaju.lv

During this campaign, 38 kilometers were "rowed" and 380 euros were donated.

Miks Odins and actor Gundars Āboliņš also share their experience in the story created by Studio 4 about collecting donations during celebrations, while social anthropologist Aivita Putnina explains why such calls are appearing more and more often. Donating is not a sprint, but a marathon.
