Aeroexpress arranged the delivery of participants to the airport and back on comfortable high-speed AERO trains.
Making a speech at the opening ceremony of the project, LLC Aeroexpress’ Director of Sales and Marketing Department Vadim Semikin remarked that “it’s a high honor for Aeroexpress to take part in this generous and colorful event and to draw public attention to the problems of seriously ill children. As a socially responsible company, we are always ready to support such events as we consider our activities helpful and necessary for the society."
Similar events will take place several times a year – everyone who likes will be able to take part in them and make their own contribution to the history of the project. The more people will take part in the event, the more colorful canvases with prints of "Kind Hands of People on Earth" will be created. It is planned to exhibit those canvases in Russia's and world's leading airports with new handprints being left on them. In future, the canvases will be put up as lots for a charity prize drawing event, and all the funds raised will go to the Life Line charity to support high-tech operations on critically ill children.
“Our project “Kind Hands of People on Earth” has several tasks: the primary one is, of course, to help children. After holding the charity events we hope to raise enough funds to help many seriously ill children. Secondly, we want to ensure that every person coming to our country and seeing a bright colorful panel with hundreds of symbolic helping hands could feel not lonely and see that there are people in our world who are ready to give a helping hand," says Faina Zakharova, President of the Life Line charity.
Among the celebrities who attended the event were: the journalist, radio and TV program hostess Fyokla Tolstaya, the singer Mitya Fomin, the writer Oleg Roy, the singer Olga Lozina, the central player of the Khimki basketball club team Timofey Mozgov and others. They all supported the project and left their handprints on the colorful canvases, which are exhibited in Terminal D's arrival lounge. Next to the panels, one can also see a photography exhibition, which is telling the history of the “Kind Hands of People on Earth” project, and find a donation box. Everyone can now take part in the event, help seriously ill children and learn more about the activities of the Life Line charity.
