If you want to help

If you want to help, you can:

Transfer money into our center’s account.

•You can easily make a donation to Maria's Children with your credit card through Global Giving platform.

•Transfer funds into the account of the “Pelican Foundation,” established by Ilya Segalovich and Arkady Volozh to implement those programs which cannot be carried out within the framework of the “Maria’s Children” Art Center.

•Come to our center as a volunteer in order to communicate and engage with the children and teach them all you can—for example, cooking, working on a computer, or anything else.

•Take children from a boarding environment home for the weekend, not only to give share the warmth of your home, but also to help instill in them everyday habits. (Guesthosting is carried out through boarding home guardianship authorities). The most important thing for a child who has no parents is live communication—the ability to see an adult up close, to be with an interesting and successful mentor who engages with him, giving him his full attention and support.

Buy our greeting cards, calendars, children’s paintings and ceramic work.

•Order custom paintings to be done by our children.

•Make donations in the form of:

  • Art Supplies (paints, brushes, paper, canvas, pencils, frames, fabric, beautiful ribbons, acrylic paints for wall murals, fabric for batiks, beads, yarn--left over scraps in small quantities, smalt, tiles in bright colors (can be battered and old, broken crockery and dishes—for mosaic, glay, glaze, cardboard, etc.)
  • Food for Tea Time (tea, cookies, candy, etc.)

•Come up with your own original idea and come share it with us.
