Love responsibly!

Fortune slipsSofia, Stara Zagora, Russe, February 14, 2017

‘Love Responsibly!’ is a fortune slips campaign of the Bulgarian Family Planning and Sexual Health Association (BFPA) around St. Valentine’s Day. You can have coffee and take your lucky health messages in several places in Sofia, Stara Zagora and Ruse. ‘Sometimes it is not you that is wrong.
