Charity bazaar in Stuttgart, 15-12-2019
Dear brothers and sisters!
An another wonderful bazaar is over! We are glad to report that it was a big sucsses. With huge grattitude to you, our parish folk, to all who support us, and with light sorrow we let this event pass.
This bazaar has happened to be special, we have collected a record amount. This is our joint merit!
Most of the funds collected, as usual, have been transferred to Diakonia “Good Deed” that supports children who come to Germany for a treatment. In addition, we will send a part to Fr Samuil to Moldova, Fr Mikhail to an orthodox parish in Lugansk, and also to Fr Alexander (parish of St. Sergius of Radonezh in Moscow) for a surgery of baby Alesha.
It is such a happiness that we can help! This is why we wish so much to thank all and everybody, note each contibution to a common sucsess!
This time we, as usual, were selling many books, they get a special interest. There were many Chirstmas and New Year decorations, souvernirs, hand-made crafts. There were embroidery, knitted and felted things made from wool. There was a plenty of tea sorts (various mixtures of healing herbs), home-made jam and liquor. Our craftswomen have also delighted us with new creative ideas: we now have wax napkins on sale (an environmentally friendly and healthy alternative to aluminum foil and cling film).
There were also towels, caskets, embroidered napkins, jewelry and many more various souvenirs of lovely motifs.
And, as always, there was a large table with lenten delicacies and fragrant tea from a samovar!
To hold a fair is a stressful task that requires a lot of labor and experience. But how great it is that we have it!
