New Year Marathon
Do you like to play and help? We've put together good deeds, your hobbies, and so got a quest called "New Year Marathon!" Teams will be formed in the cities - participants of the marathon (please find a more detailed list here, it is possible to join an already existing team or to establish one's own. Each team has to go through three "testing stations" - marathon stages; each of them will provide an opportunity to express oneself in charity, patronage, and creativity, and in other good deeds. Anyone may join the program and contribute, at any stage of the marathon! To do this, it is required to get in contact with the program coordinator in your city. If you have no possibility or time to establish a team of your own, but you really want to help the kids believe in the New Year miracle, please see the tab below!
A letter to Santa Claus
Everyone remembers, in the childhood, waiting for the New Year and intentionally not going to bed, to see Santa Claus, who brought the gifts in a sleigh and quietly put them under the New Year tree? Unfortunately, not all the kids in this country may enjoy a real holiday, but the New Year is a time of miracles, and this means that each of us can help someone's little dream come true. Kids from different parts of Russia wrote letters to Santa Claus, and we have gathered all the wishes here. If you decide to make someone's small, but a cherished dream true, we promise to help with the delivery of a gift to its recipient.
Every little helps
No reason is needed to do a good deed and help someone - just your wish! If you are willing to help but do not know how to apply your skills, please visit this website. Both individual volunteers and entire companies may participate in the "Every Little Helps" project. On the website, you can easily find the campaigns performed in different regions of the country, which might need the help of yours. If, on the contrary, it is you who needs help, then all you need is to sign up and to tell us about your problem.
The Sky Children
Basel Aero together with Blue Bird Foundation implements a charity project "The Sky Children." Within this project, excursions to Krasnodar International Airport are held for the Foundation's participants. The disabled children go the way of a real passenger and visit an aircraft or a helicopter. The experts tell the kids about the airport operations. In the opinion of the children, the most enjoyed and memorable part of the excursion is a visit to the firehouse, where they can see how a fire vehicle operates.
Krasnodar International Airport for four years has performed donor events attended by the employees of the airport and the businesses located within the airport area.
Blood donation is carried out on the base of a mobile blood transfusion station, provided with modern equipment, so that up to five people can simultaneously donate their blood.
About 300 people have participated in all the events, having donated about 100 liters of blood to help seriously ill patients.
