Let's celebrate my 25th birthday and provide one child with warm school lunches every day for a year.
Last year I had a wonderful opportunity to witness the lives of children from families of the richest, from the poorest, as well as everything in between. Those were children who had a warm lunch served to them every day, as well as children who could only dream about such a thing like a warm school lunch.

Understanding how privileged I am to be able to even think about such things, I would like to contribute to those children, for whom a warm school lunch is a luxury and who do not take it for granted as I did my whole life.

When you put things in perspective, we don't hesitate to spend 20 EUR on eating out, while this could provide school lunches for one child in the Czech Republic for the whole month.

To celebrate my birthday this year, I would like to give back as much as I can, and I would like to invite you to join me. Through this fundraiser, I am aiming to raise 5,000 CZK (=190 EUR) to provide school lunches for one child for the whole school year.

Thank you for joining me!

And to have a bit of a party, I will match the donation by 25% of the goal to celebrate my 25th birthday.
To contribute and help a concrete pupil to get a school alimentation, simply choose an amount to the transparent bank account of the project LUNCHES FOR KIDS / OBĚDY PRO DĚTI. All donations are in 100% used for the purpose of the project, i.e. funding lunches for children. To give you an idea, one school lunch costs about 25 CZK – approx. 1 EURO. The monthly costs of lunches for one pupil amount to approximately 500 CZK, which adds up to about 5 000 CZK over the whole school-year. We support children on the basis of special partnerships with the schools.
LUNCHES FOR KIDS / OBĚDY PRO DĚTI goal is to help children who, due to their parents’ situation, cannot afford to pay for their lunches in school canteens. We support children whose situation is long-term, have no prospect of improvement, and for whom a lunch in a school canteen is often the only regular warm meal, in spite of their parents’ effort to improve their situation. 

We work in partnership with elementary schools, and sometimes canteens, which are independent semi-budgetary organisations. On principle, we never provide direct financial support to the children’s families. 

Assistance is administered through elementary schools on a donation agreement basis so that lunches reach the children in need without complicating their parents’ situation, and the assistance cannot be abused.
