“It is not the financial success that is crucial, it is the pleasant feeling that you have done something good and humane, and that you have helped a child who found itself at a life crossing to choose the right way. The first attempts are often unsuccessful and the mistakes are unavoidable, but they should be seen as an investment in the future and to rely on patience. Our experience has showed that the rule that people give when their wallet is at hand is not always the case. They give when they are motivated and encouraged to give for the cause which is close to them, and to which they are loyal.” Deže Kiš, Moonlight foundation, Serbia.
