Star Nails – Bulgaria donates BGN 3,150 for the BFW program Chance for the Invisible Super Moms
Star Nails – Bulgaria Ltd. Organized the ceremony Annual EMILY Awards in Plovdiv. During the event, the company officially presented a check worth BGN 3,150 to Bulgarian Fund for Women for the program Chance for the Invisible Super Moms. The amount was collected by the participants in the competition, which aims to promote and honour the work of manicurists and pedicurists across the country. Thanks to the donation, single mothers and their children will be helped to take a professional course of their choice and thus improve their chances of living with decent work and without violence.
“We chose this program because it is not aimed at one-time assistance, but at sustainable support for the future of single mothers and their children. Bulgarian Fund for Women invests in the professional development of women who raise their children on their own, providing them with scholarships for a course for acquiring or improving their professional qualifications. All participants in the program are single parents at risk of poverty and/or survivors of violence, who know in which direction they want to develop, have the motivation to learn and upgrade their skills – they are carefully selected by the Fund’s partners from crisis centres in the country,” Star Nails pointed out in their motivation.
The Emily Annual Awards has a strong professional focus and aims to provide a public field for the best manicurists and pedicurists. Through a specially created platform, these people can show to a wider audience their models, creativity, and precision in their work. The competition has 6 categories and a jury, which evaluates the participants. After the end of the registration period and the initial filling in of the participants’ profiles with information and photos, the platform was open for online voting, in which everyone could participate – from the clients of manicurists and pedicurists to complete strangers who are impressed by their work.
100% of the value of each paid participation fee is a donation to the Bulgarian Fund for Women in support of the program Chance for the Invisible Super Moms. As the Organizer, Star Nails – Bulgaria transferred after the end of the registration period the entire amount of participation fees collected to support the implementation of the initiative.
The team of Bulgarian Fund for Women expresses gratitude for the faith in the cause and the support of single mothers and their children for an independent and dignified life.
