Middle schools, as well as primary school, nursery schools and various types of business can engage in the so-called “Days of Hearts” collection in the form of employee collections.
High schools engage in the collection by releasing students – volunteers, who offer our products to people on the streets of their respected town on the day of the collection. The students always go in pairs, one of the students takes care of the sealed moneybox and the other student has a PVC bag, which contains gift items (e.g. magnets and paper weight) which they then offer to the people walking by. The amounts of sold items are determined by the size of the city and the number of volunteers. The students also carry informative handouts, which contain detailed information about the projects and activities of Life for Children and also about the goal of the collection. Students are marked with labels with information about their school where they study and their name. At the same time, each pair has a copy of their collection permit.
Primary schools engage in the collection by ordering a certain number of collection items, which they subsequently offer through their teachers to their pupils and their parents. The school receives collection permits and informative leaflets for parents along with the collection items.
Nursery schools participate in a very similar way to primary schools, with the difference that schools offer the gift items to the parents of the children and the amount related to the demand of the parents is ordered subsequently. Life for Children can arrange for the collection of the funds, however, there is the option of the respected school to deposit collected funds to our collection account at any branch of Česká spořitelna or by bank transfer to this account.
Given that many people spend time at their workplace during the collection, having no chance to purchase the gift items and thus help the sick children, we also offer delivery of the items directly to individual companies and firms. For this to happen, the company finds a volunteer, who will be in charge of the collection and we will communicate with him. Subsequent procedure is the same one as in primary schools and nursery schools. The company orders the collection items that their employees buy directly at their workplace from the volunteer. Funds collected will be sent to us by the company by depositing it on our collection account, with the variable symbol being the TIN (Taxpayer Identification Number) also known as IČO in the Czech Republic.
All kind schools and companies, who get involved in the collection, receive a certificate of appreciation with the amount of how much they contributed to help the seriously ill children. Schools and companies can also use this certificate in their promotional materials.
