“Charity – is what I have been living for, now and for many years. I want to extend and develop charitable programs, appropriating more and more funds and other resources. I consider my goal is not only financing and arrangement of charitable activities, but development of charity culture in our society as a whole. This is how it works in the world. Charitable activity is honorable no matter on what level it is taking place (it can be financing of a large charitable organization or donation of 1 cent to sick child). And my aim now – is to incorporate these values in our daily living. To achieve this goal, I need a like-minded person, ready to work day and night. And I am sure that Elena Polischuk is definitely this person, and we will be able to fulfill all our ambitious plans with her help Leonid Chernovetski said”.
