Last year nearly 5,000 visitors and more than 500 volunteers working with communities of 30+ countries helped the organisers collect more than 1 million Euros since the bazaar began in support of children, women, the elderly and the disadvantaged.
All the organisers of the Christmas Bazaar are volunteers, who receive no compensation for the time or resources they bring to the initiative.
All money collected on the day of the Bazaar and related activities goes directly to the beneficiaries. Sponsorships help to cover organisational costs; sponsors also have the option to fund the beneficiaries directly. The beneficiaries do not receive cash; the projects funded through the Christmas Bazaar are directly paid to the suppliers as per invoice. Potential beneficiaries for support this year are being evaluated presently and will be announced in September.
Sponsors are recognised for contributions made in support of the overall initiative or directly to a particular beneficiary in the name of the Christmas Bazaar. The deadline for confirmation is 30th October 2016 for those sponsors wishing to place logos in printed materials. While sponsors are encouraged to make a contribution throughout the year, the ICCB Organising Committee regrets that it cannot guarantee placement in publicity materials after the deadline.
Sponsors will be recognised according the value of the contribution, with particular emphasis on cash donations made in support of the official beneficiaries and/or overall organisation of the event. Donations will be presented to beneficiaries at a handover ceremony.
If you have any question, please contact Rima Ingstad, member of the Organising Committee responsible for sponsorship (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org; Mob.tel: +370 687 73733).
We hope that you can take this opportunity to become involved in the Christmas Bazaar, a traditional event which becomes more successful each year in spite of challenges. We do hope that you will be able to join us in making a difference in the lives of the ill, less fortunate and disadvantaged.
