November 30. If your heart aches….

From Heart To Heart…

 

                                            “If we fail to dare, if we don’t try,

                                            then the next generation will  reap the harvest

                                            of our indifference…”            

 

I was deeply impressed during the auction at “Art-Talkers”. The aim of the event was to collect money for the benefit of the Fastiv orphanage, to be able to invite the children to visit Kyiv and enjoy its places of interests – museums or theaters.

 

The meager attendance at the library of arts was not promising.  Just a handful of members, librarians and guests … As a rule, charity  auctions gather volunteers who have great desire to help those in need. Anyway, optimistic Levon Petrosyan with his charming smile, who has great talent as an auctioneer, inspired the audience to bid generously for the auction items.

 

What was sold at the auction? Books with poetry and prose, CDs, pictures and souveniers. The meeting was conducted in a usual form – with Timer, Ah-Counter and Grammarian. And the phrase of the day was “From Heart to Heart’. And the mission  of the auction was deep – to open our hearts…

 

And we succeeded! We gathered 700 hryvnas! If you ask how it could happen, I would reply without hesitation: our souls were ready for doing goodfrom heart to heart.

 

Great thanks to the librarians who presented a small booklet about literature of artificial hunger in Ukraine. A friend of our club Sergey Grebenyuk brought a very useful book of typical English phrases. Yulia Usova, Tanya Knyazeva and Olya Pogorelova prepared books, pictures and CDs.  To our delight, in an hour all the items were sold.

 

Great thanks to everybody who took part in the auction and donated money for children.

I hope that sooner or later we’ll make a new step in doing good – from heart to heart.
