What is the project?

In difficult times as we are living, it is more than necessary to try to do good. As this is already a constant guideline of the Christmas season, this year we implemented a Christmas donation campaign, aiming to support NGOs and other non-profit institutions that work with literature. It is also very true that culture has helped us to keep our sanity to a minimum during the pandemic and that books are capable of changing lives.

We can all help, either by donating items that Organizations/Institutions need, or by donating money through the Vakinha created for the project . The amount collected by Vakinha will be divided and distributed equally among all Organizations and Institutions partnering in the campaign after the end of the campaign (scheduled for 12/31) and availability of the money through the platform.
