Every Child Is a Winner
MG Charity Tombola

Thanks to the enthusiastic response and sincere generosity of all the students, their parents and teachers, our traditional MG Charity Tombola organised on February 12th was once again a big fundraising success. A success that can not only be measured by the joy that has been brought to our many tombola winners, but also by the raised money within our annual project "Animals - Adopt, Rescue and Love forever".

The Fat Tuesday Event on February 12th started with an educational workshop, aimed at enhancing our sensitivity towards all animals and led by the representatives of the Shelter for Abandoned Animals of the City of Zagreb in Dumovec. The tombola was being run in a friendly and fun atmosphere with the prizes that had been kindly donated in advance by the students, their parents and teachers. The tradition of every child winning a prize at MG tombola has been continued this year as well since we had such an enthusiastic response from all participants. We collected 1.500 HRK for the Shelter for Abandoned Animals of the City of Zagreb in Dumovec and the Animal Shelter "Noina Arka" in order to provide top-quality veterinary care and to prepare the animals for adoption. Hopefully, many of them will be welcomed into their new homes in the coming months.
