17 September is the first day of kindergarten for thousands of children in Romania. But most children living under the poverty line won’t be there — because they can’t afford clean clothes and school supplies. For some, even soap and water is an issue. Please help a poor child start gradinita. Send an SMS to 8860 to contribute 2€ to Fiecare Copil in Gradinita.
