Following our yearly tradition, we are happy to invite you and your friends to the Charity Board Games. Besides playing board games, networking and having much fun, you’ll have a chance to contribute to Ukrainian national defense.
This time Charity Board Games is dedicated to raising funds for the needs of the military base ВO111 that protects Ukraine from the Russian aggression on the front line since 2014. The money we collect will be spend on laptops, printers, paper and cartridges. These are important things for reporting and internal documentation that are unfortunately uncovered by limited budget. Our member’s (Asya Kostashenko) brother who is deputy commander of this base has asked for help.
Please do come down and join us on Sunday, April 2, at 5pm in Dynamo (Södermannagatan 38).
Starting voluntary contribution is 100 SEK. Since it’s a charity event, there will be no checks prior or during the event, but we rely on your kindness and honesty.
