THE STORY:

International Children’s Day has its roots on present-day April 23 Sovereignty and Children’s Day, a national holiday celebrated in Turkiye every 23rd of April. It was established by the founder of the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk in the 1920’s around the time when he started the task of laying down the foundations of a new, independent, secular, and modern Republic from the ashes of the Ottoman Empire. He dedicated this day to the world’s children and entrusted in the hands of the youth the protection of this sovereignty and independence. Today, the importance of April 23 as a special day of the children has been recognized by the international community leading to the official recognition of this special day as the International Children’s day by UNICEF. In Turkiye, celebration of International Children’s Day is a unique event. Traditionally, schools participate in organized festivities. There was even a time in which world’s states would send groups of children to Turkiye to participate in these festivities. It was truly an international assembly where children would pledge their commitment to international peace and brotherhood. On this day, let’s renew our commitment to international peace and brotherhood by sending a gift to the underserved children of Turkish society. Our gift will provide for sneakers to the children of Kislacik Ilkokulu in Kirklareli; Samankaya Sehit Suleyman Solak Ilkokulu in Sivas; Halil Ibrahim Arilik Ilkokulu in Denizli; and Meydan Ilkokulu in Sirnak. A donation amount of only $10 will buy a new pair of sneakers for a boy or a girl who really needs it and would proudly wear it every day.
