The participants are required to record a small amateur video, send it by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, challenge three friends and distribute the video in social media with the hashtag #suhayapyatnitsa# renatamurtazina # nashidetiufa. Donation for Renata can be done either through a credit card on the website "Nashi Deti", or by sending SMS «ФЕЯ» with an indication of the sum on the short code 3434. The surgery is scheduled for the end of September.
