Our bene-faction consists of regular visits in children´s houses and organization of even several-day outdoor activities. Regularly, once a week, we visit children with educating activities, canistherapy, we assist with school prepare. We bath the little children and read bedtime stories. Not only children estimate it, also the governesses do. Unfortunately, the children are often socially excluded, also among their contemporaries, because they cannot share experiences or cannot do some common sports, for example swimming, skiing, but surprisingly also theatre- or cinemagoing or eating out in fastfoods. During these activities, we casually become their older friends whom they can turn to whenever, even after leaving children´s homes.
- We have workshops with children and there is our E-SHOP for the handmade products that children do not want to keep.
We help children also with food delivery within the framework of foodbanking .
- We work with the Nove Straseci, Horni Krnsko, Mlada Boleslav Children´s Home and host, foster families.
Let us leave the theory behind.

Preventive measures in children's homes-reduction of our activities

30.12. 2018 Christmas in the mountains by Kačka 🤗
What will come to your mind when you say - the mountains?
Hiking, climbing, a great panorama, snow, Christmas maybe?
And when you say Christmas?
Ease, peace, family, food, sweets?
These are maybe the items everybody would think of, but as for me, I had a question. Children's homes and Christmas spent in the mountains? It is not possible, is it?
As usually, I was afraid of it. Of something unknown and new.
It was a terrible mistake.
Thanks to Dobrodějky, this event was held from 23 December to 26 December 2018.
It was maybe the best thing regarding Christmas because everybody has enjoyed it very much - skiing, sledding, snowball fights, lying in the snow, creation and bringing us together.
There was a lot of experiences to write about, but my biggest and best experience was the Christmas dinner. When we were sitting at the table and were a satisfied family. At least for me, it was like that. It was very pleasant, alhough I was not in the Christmas mood before, how it uses to be.
After we have sat at the table in a fancy dress and have started to debate like people who have been growing together.
You know, I personally am glad that I am in a chidren's home, because I would miss these magical moments. How marvellous it is to be with people you like, and the people are here for you always.
I like Dobrodějky very much, because they do help the children from the children's homes as they can and I thank them for that.
This Christmas was as charming as it was when I was a little girl.
23.12. - 26.12.2018 Christmas in the mountains
Now we are back at home from the "Christmas with children from the children's homes in the mountains". How was it like? I believe that I speak on behalf of all of us when saying that it was perfect!
Children and adults have enjoyed it so much. We could have the children taken out for this trip not only due to the Dobrodějky!
We thank so much Chata Barka - Benecko/Krkonoše for the favourable price, a fabulous atmosphere, great care, tasteful cuisine and caring approach. We know for know we will get back soon and gladly 😘
Benecko - Vzdušné lázně v Krkonoších - ski resort - we really thank so much and really appreciate the hundred-per-cent season tickets reduction, which had helped us and we could have paid for the very patient ski instructors of Miraski School-Rental Benecko for the children, so that all the children have learned skiing and could ski down the little piste and could use the tow. We also thank the ski lift operators.
We cannot put aside Pragotour s. r. o. who has provided a safe and luxury transport for a favourable price with a nice driver.
We also want to thank to the Little Jesus who has endowed us with a lot of Christmas presents via dm drogerie markt Česká republika, Adrienne Rambousková, who has ordered a private raising, and the girls from the ad agency, who had embroidered hats (hats and neck warmers, you can buy in our e-shop).
We are happy to thank also Bright HR a Merit group, who had helped with the funding.
Thanks to all the volunteers and educators who have decided to spend the Christmas time with the children from children's homes. We could not have done this without them.
And we also want to thank the great children who have helped each other being into all activities - skiing, sledding, snowball fights, games, creation...
Shortly said, we THANK YOU all, you who have participated somehow in this event, and there is a lot of people. It would not have come true without you.
15.12.2018 - At Cinema
Today, we enjoyed an awesome forenoon with foster and socially weaker families at cinema. We thank so much Kino Lucerna for freebies!🤗
5.12.2018 - St.Nicholas´s presents distribution
Hallo, hallo? Is there anybody left? We know there is, indeed you are awesome and the devils take only the bad ones. St.Nicholas and the angel got this info via heaven mail that there would be only good things, sweets, thus much. Although the devils tried hard, children were not afraid at all. The angel had a lot work to do because all the children were good and there was no need to give out coal. Shortly said, our devils left empty-handed from all our three children´s homes.
2.12.2018 - Czech St.Nicholas´s presents "predistribution"
We want to wish a beautiful first advent Sunday to everybody. Advent is by the by about families getting united again and that also was what our first advent weekend was about. It was about mutual moving help of our "Good♥Families". Mums and aunts from the families whom we help, told us about a socially weak biological family that needs help and the mums and aunts by themselves ordered a gathering directly for this family. For us, it was a pleasure to help deliver the gathering and brought it together with a little St.Nicholas´s presents predistribution. We helped our new family who we took under our "hat" with foodbanking delivery of Potravinová banka Praha. It was an emotional, beautifully spent weekend full of joy with our Good♥Families. We thank you so much, you are really amazing! 🤗
17.11.2018 - The swimming-pool
It is autumn again, a season when you want to be indoors rather than outdoors. We miss the summer heat and bathing, that is why we have taken the children to the swimming-pool with us 🤗
So our very first adventure with the children from the Chidren's home in Krnsko has run over. Due to safety in the pool, we have taken there with us only six children - we will take other six of them next time. The pool in Liberec has surprised us by pleasantly hot water, lots of places to warm up and wonderful roller coaster, toboggans and slides. We have enjoyed it so much, it was a marvellous day🤗
10. 11. 2018 Nationwide food gathering
We want to publish our wonderful results of this food gathering. We gathered marvellous 1,203 kg of food for our children and the handicapped in need thanks to the Tesco Zahradní město staff´s and customers´s efforts. All the food was delivered to the end recipients of the aid that very day. All the food and dry goods really pleased all. We want to thank all the Tesco´s and Nalžovický zámek´s volunteer staff for great help, Finally, a big thank you to the Foodbanking of Prague, there would not be on such an amazing nationwide event.
28. - 30. 9. 2018 Colorful autumn in Sklárna
We have been to our first weekend stay. Yipee! We went for it to Sklárna by Žihle with the children from the Nové Strašecí chidren´s home. They have taken care of us wonderfully! We could use the rope center, a gym, two clubrooms. In addition to that, they cooked excellentely, thanks! With the children, we made kites, autumnal decorations, went for walks, worked out in the gym and there was also an "Beauty salon evening". We used the clubroom with the projection screen to watch movies every evening. Shortly said, it was awesome 🤗
20. 9. 2018 - Garden miniclub
We support the children in what they like to do and what they love. That is why we did not hesitate and prepared a garden miniclub when they told us they wanted to grow something. Whether this was successfull, we are about to learn in two weeks when we prepare a cress salad. 🌱🌱🌱😋
We also want to ask our garden fans: Do you know of another herb🌿🌺, that you can plant now in this season?💡?
You can find us on Facebook: Dobrodějky. Thank you.
16. 9. 2018 - Marzipan and animal therapy
On Sunday, we sweetened our lives and exercised our fingers.🤗 Children created a lot of beauty from the marzipan 🌈 - animals, flowers, balls with gates, snowmen and even our fourlegged therapist Rozinka 🐕 They enjoyed the animaltherapy with guinea pigs and a bunny, others had fun under the basketball basket. It was simply a beautiful day!💗👏❤️
15. 9. 2018 - Cake baking
You know, no pain no gain, but the children had a fancy for a cake. So we put off on a walk and picked some elderberries. It was not difficult, and the cake was in the oven. But the cleaning up the mess in the kitchen... You certainly know it ;-)
10. 9. 2018 - Home made sirup
Most parents know it well probably. It is not easy to make children drink enough and even healthy. But when children cook their own sirup themselves - that is another pair of shoes! :-) They drink it cheerly and let everybody taste it too - and we have taken use of it. The children did pull the elderberry sirup off!
