The National Network for Children launches the "Together for Children" movement

CampaignBulgaria, February 24, 2021

When you are little, it is important to have an adult on your side, because children are highly vulnerable and need protection. That is why it is necessary for each of us to stand behind the cause of our children to have a happy childhood.
The National Network for Children (NNC) has launched the Together for Children movement, which calls upon the whole society for responsible parenting and civic activism on children's issues. On the occasion of the upcoming March celebrations, special free bracelets will be disseminated among friends and partners in the country, made with a lot of love - as a symbol of care for children in Bulgaria.
Maybe someone will connect it with the traditional red thread against jinxing, and others with the Martenitsa, which we tie as a wish for health and luck on the wrists of our children, relatives and friends.

BraceletBut to protect our children, it is not enough just to rely on wishes and good luck. We all, as parents and citizens, as a society and a state, need to be active and do the best for them. That is why 140 member organizations of the Network, as well as over 10 thousand professionals, have been working for 15 years to ensure that all children have a family, are healthy, go to school, enjoy a home, security and protection.
Join the Facebook game of "Together for the children" - take a picture with the bracelet, describe your dream for a better life for children in Bulgaria and post it on your Facebook wall until March 15. Use the hashtag: #заеднозадецата. The five messages that gather the most likes will receive a special gift from the NNC.

Campaign partners are Ciela publishing house and chain of bookstores, Greenwich bookstore, the site mamamia.bg, Woman today magazine
