I am writing on behalf of You Are a Sunflower Foundation, to share with you our recent initiative ‘Tirana You Are a Sunflower’ and attract your interest and support for the project.
In cooperation with the Municipality of Tirana, the You Are a Sunflower Foundation intends to paint 250 large Sunflower symbols across large building facades in Tirana and construction sites, to generate awareness raising and support about the struggle that children with potentially terminal diseases face. Aside each Sunflower drawing, an appropriately sized note, in Albanian language, will mark the contribution of the partner who enabled the symbol: Powered by: (name of company or person)
Out of a total of 250 Sunflower symbols, 5 illuminated sunflowers have been installed around the city, 20 of them will be as large as a building facade, 80 Sunflowers will be of 2X2 m dimensions, and the remaining 145 will be of 120 X 120cm dimensions. Contributions collected per Sunflower symbol vary from EUR 2500 for small sized paintings to EUR 5000 and EUR 10000 for the full-facade Sunflower symbols. For illuminated Sunflowers, the value amounts to EUR 5000. Each company that enabled the specific symbol shall be entitled to maintain their logo for the entire year as per the agreement entered into with the Municipality of Tirana. Upon preliminary signature of an agreement with the Municipality of Tirana, the term may be extended upon specific request from the supporting/sponsoring company.
Following the suggestion of the Prime Minister, Mr.Rama, the contributions from each supporting companies, foundations or individuals joining and supporting ‘Tirana You Are a Sunflower’ project, shall be allocated to the support of the children at the Elbasan Pediatric Hospital, whereas the remaining funds shall be allocated to Mother Teresa Hospital Pavilion no. 5, where healthcare conditions still remain quite challenging.
A fully designed website www.youareasunflower.org, which provides information on each Sunflower symbol, including full pictures, address and location that enable visitors from around the world, who visit Tirana, to track the exact address where each Sunflower Symbol is located, equipped with supporting navigation tools available in the website and mobile web address.
100 % of all funds collected as part of this campaign will be directly allocated to supporting services for children at Elbasan Pediatric Hospital and Mother Teresa Pavilion no.5 Hospital. All expenses and relevant invoices will be available to all supporting companies in keeping on with the practice that we have already established during our first ‘You Are a Sunflower’ T-Shirt campaign.
On behalf of the children that will benefit from your support, I would like to thank you in advance.
