AmCham Thanksgiving Charity Fundraising Drive

As we prepare for the coming winter months, cultures across the world stop to celebrate and give thanks for their successful and abundant harvests. While organizing our annual AmCham Thanksgiving Gala Charity Dinner we would like to take this opportunity to host our Annual Thanksgiving Charity Drive with the goal of sharing with those who need it most in our community.

As has been AmCham's tradition in previous years, we will seek again donations from our members to be distributed to a deserving charity in Slovakia.

Last year, AmCham Slovakia distributed 6,890 EUR to Maria Magdalena House based in Žakovce (Kežmarok County). The contribution is currently being used for reconstruction of the house which serves the women with children who were abandoned by their family, pregnant women with no family support or women with children who were subject to violent behavior.

This year AmCham plans to support Pod krídlami Dominiky - Under the wings of Dominika from Nitra, nominated by Slovenská sporiteľňa, a. s.

Pod krídlami Dominiky is a non-profit organization which provides care for seriously ill and terminally ill children. The organization provides them with the opportunity to stay in their homes for as long as possible.  To reduce exposure and stress, doctors and nurses visit the children directly at home. They take care of all necessary and related procedures and re-bandaging, infusion therapy and rehabilitation. The organization provides children maximum comfort and all needed medicine and technical equipment. All these services are given for free. 

In order to make this Charity Drive a success, we kindly ask you for your support. The suggested contribution for AmCham members is 1,000 € and 200 € for individuals. Of course, any amount is greatly appreciated.

Please complete the attached Pledge Record and send it to AmCham by email at amcham@amcham.sk or by fax at +421 2 5464 0535 by November 24th. All contributions can be accepted by bank transfer to our special Charity Drive account: American Chamber of Commerce, account number 2926902357, bank code 1100.

The solicited amount will be handed out to the charity during the Thanksgiving Gala Charity Dinner on November 25, 2016.

Sincerely, AmCham.
