All of them have been awarded the honourable title “Kaunas City Lady” in the current year.
“The understanding of your own goodness and the ability to share it – that is what makes a person happy. It is difficult to push people to do good by only saying, but it is easy to do that by showing a good example. So I really want to invite everyone to become that example, which would inspire others and would let to feel the joy of making good actions”, – said the psychologist and director of Kaunas District Centre of Men Crisis Dovilė Bubnienė.
According to Bubnienė, we are occupied by everyday routine and constantly running in breath-taking pace all through the year, and we do not have enough time to see and make everything. But during this special time of the year, there is a desire not only to make this festive season meaningful, but also to feel your own existence on this planet meaningful, to open yourselves and show what you are deep in your hearts.
“Generosity is the one of the kindest features of a human being. Yesterday, today and tomorrow our help is and will be needed by those people who live harder for various reasons” , – told the creator of Kaunas Christmas tree, artist J. Šmidtienė.
The evening will take place on December 27 at Kaunas Old Town City Hall. Kaunas City Mayor Visvaldas Matijošaitis is the patron of Christmas Charity Evening.
