LET`S GROW TOGETHER – AOL MACEDONIA ECO MISSION


Subscribe to The Art of Living Updates (Europe)

On the 22.12.2012, with the eco action LET`S GROW TOGETHER, we slowly rounded the achievements made in the field of environmental events in the year that slowly is ending.

Colorful from the decorations and balloons, the yard of the Garden Center, where the action was organized, was filled with the patter of over 30 children who came to plant oak seeds and learn about the process of growth and development from seed to tree. The joyful and curious children`s eyes were absorbing every word from the experts who were explaining what is the meaning of the trees for us and for the nature. Neither the cold weather nor the red noses could stop these children from their intention to plant their own tree, and thus to bring more green and fresh air in future.

Once the seed was planted, everyone wrote a name on their pot, and during the year they will be able to visit, nurture and grow together with their tree. Then followed deserved hot tea and cookies for the hardworking children.

Planting oak just before New Year and Christmas holidays is not randomly selected. The oak has a symbolism for the Macedonians. During Christmas, the houses are decorated with oak`s branches in order in the year that comes to have prosperity and health in the house.

The purpose of this action was to raise the awareness among children from small feet to care of nature and encouraging love for the nature.

Here are some of the pictures of the beautiful event:

"Choose Love" - New Year humanitarian action


Subscribe to The Art of Living Updates (Europe)

"Choose Love" - New Year humanitarian action

On the occasion of New Year and Christmas holidays, Art of Living - Macedonia, organized a humanitarian action "Choose Love", dedicated to children from socially disadvantaged families. This action was part of the traditional actions that AOL Macedonia organizes every year in order to provide some food and gifts for the children of these hungry families to enable them to experience the joy and warmth of the New Year holidays.

The creative workshop was attended by 40 children, who made Christmas cards, donated food, toys and books, which will be an integral part of the New Year presents for the children whose parents can not allow buying any gifts. It was interesting that they already knew what means to be human and to give and help to someone who does not have. That is why the cards were made with great joy and given with love.

Even before they started to create they knew why they have come to the event. Beautiful, colorful greeting cards were created by the small hardworking fingers of the children who wrote messages with wishes for a Happy New Year, telling to Santa Claus not to forget the homes of these poor children. They wanted just a little to bring closer the magic of the holidays in their homes.

The event was also attended and supported by famous Macedonian music stars, actors and children's writers, and together with them they were dancing, reading and acting, imagining that they were in the theater. The event was supported by the media too.

Here are some pictures of the amazing event:
