Here is a message from the partner non-profit that has received and is distributing the funds, concerning the final beneficiary:
The campaign supports families with children who are growing up in harsh family conditions, relying on an amount of funds below the social minimum. The severe living conditions are caused primarily by the presence of only one parent and lack of close relatives to help with child/children care, severe chronic illness, permanent disability in one or both parents, leading to long-term inability to find a permanent job. The number of such families in Bulgaria is rising. They are not entitled to receive any state support and their number is not a subject to official state statistics.
The funds raised through BitHope are being used in the form of a monthly allowance of BGN 90 (around 45 Euro) for the family of Mrs. Sabka Saeva (41 years old) from the village of Malka Jelyazna, Teteven municipality. She is raising her two children - Veronica, 13, and Georgi, 6 years old - alone. The family has signed a contract to receive the support for 1 year. The monthly amounts have been distributed since February 2017. Without the help provided, the monthly income of the family is BGN 183 (around 90 Euro), consisting of a social pension and child allowance. The support this year is particularly important because George will be a first grader.
The family was pinpointed to us by the Teteven Center for Public Support with Director Mrs. Anita Gabrovska, who guaranteed that, despite the terrible poverty, Mrs. Saeva is an extremely caregiving and dedicated mother. With the help of the relevant social worker, Mr. Nikolay Marinov, we are observing that the funds are spend in the best possible way and for the benefit of the children.
We sincerely thank the BitHope Foundation for this year's participation in the campaign. The support that we received through bitcoin donations helps parents and children directly.

There are between 3000 and 4000 abandoned children in Bulgaria.
Some of them are physically fit, while others suffer from physical or mental disabilities. Most of them are raised in social institutions, but due to the streamlining of adoption and fostering procedures in recent years, their access to a healthier environment has improved. Although they do continue to experience many forms of scarcity in their lives, they are recipients of financial aid coming from the government, are subjects of the efforts of many non-profit organizations and receive donations from numerous legal and natural persons.
Unfortunately, there is a worrisome tendency that has formed in the last 10 years in the poorest of the EU member states.
The number of single parent households has been steeply rising. These lonely mothers, widows/widowers are usually surviving only on social benefits (67-90 USD/month) and child support (23 USD/month) due to a medical condition and lack of relatives. The number of children in families with two triple-disabled parents and that of fully-orphaned children living with kith and kin, has also increased significantly.
No social program is directed towards these groups and they are left to survive on funds which are two or more times lower than the bare minimum.
Supporting such groups has become an important mission to the “Nadezhda” Foundation ("nadezhda" means “hope” in Bulgarian), established to help disadvantaged children.
The “Every child deserves a holiday” campaign has the aim to generate funds, which will be divided into equal sums and will be donated to families (households), forced to survive below the minimum living standards, on big national, international, historic, cultural, religious holidays, Easter, Christmas, the International Children’s Day, International Day of Families, or on personal holidays such as birthdays or namedays.
Because each child deserves a holiday.
