Annual charity event lets people meet celebrities

The second year of the charity event Misia / Mission, in which Popular Slovak actors, singers and cultural personalities swap their show business jobs to be postal messengers will occur on September 12.Like last year, the organisers aim to help people who rely on the help of others.In 2011, fifty celebrities took part in the charity initiative, including Laco Lučenič, Marek Majeský, Jaro Bekr, Pyco, Misha, Lucia Hablovičová, Martin Nikodým, Jozef “Jopo” Poláček, and the ambassador of the Slovak mission, Nikita Slovák. The idea behind the Czecho-Slovak charity initiative involves getting people to donate money to charity by selling money certificates, which are to be hand-delivered by a list of celebrities. Someone can purchase a certificate worth €10 and a randomly assigned celebrity (from the list of those participating) will deliver it. Purchasing a €50 certificate allows one to choose the celebrity who delivers it. Director and actor Petr Forman and head of the messenger company David Voverka, came up with the idea. This year, the event begins on September 4 in Prague, continuing on September 12 in Bratislava, and culminating on September 19 in (the Czech city of) Pilsen, Vladimír Kroupa of the Access Promotion company informed the TASR newswire. The celebrities will be delivering certificates on Wednesday, September 12, starting in Primate’s Square. In the evening, they will hand over the amount collected from the certificates. Last year, the event raised nearly €8, 000, which went towards the purchase of a medical device that helps people suffering from locomotive injuries for the centre of Daily Stay in Bratislava.
