Foundation for seriously ill children "Poter Net" opens the first charity shop in Ufa. The Director of the "Poter Net" Foundation Radmila Surnacheva says that the proceeds will be directed to help seriously ill children and realization of charity programs.

“Our charity shop will be run on a "gift — donation" principle. In this store the goods don’t have price tags. Each customer can choose something for himself — clothes, toys, handicrafts, and leave his donation in a special box. The funds collected will be directed for charity, primarily for payment of children treatment. All financial reporting on activities of the charity shop will be disclosed on the website available to the public”, Radmila Surnacheva explained.

The charity shop will be also a venue for creative workshops, a platform for communication of active people, volunteers and philanthropists of the foundation.

The foundation organizers address to residents of Ufa and the republic with a request to participate in the project and make donations.

The solemn opening of the shop "Heart of the City" will be held on March 29 at 12:00 at the address:  120, Mendeleev Street, Ufa (entrance from the courtyard).

Those who wish to donate their possessions, souvenirs, toys and care products can bring them to the charity shop or make a call on the phone: 89373040424, 89374744145.
