Charity campaign on behalf of the Repic Family
The annual charity campaign of the Christmas Market at the Maria-Theresa-Square supports those projects that desperately demand direct and quick support.
Ms. Anna Repic is a single mother of three. Her two sons Julian (14) and Simon (15) go to public schools and are healthy. Her third child, however, Sophia (10) is severely handicapped.
Ms. Repic herself is rather frail in health as well – she has cancer. Even though both are freed from reception charge, they still have to pay for quite expensive medication out of their own pocket.
Anna Repic is a strong woman who loves her children to bits and who tries to alter her family’s life for the better as best as she can. Support Anna Repic on her way to beat cancer and give her a hand in managing the family’s life.
With a donation of € 2,00 you can already help out the Repic family!
If you have given a donation, you will receive an original Viennese Star made in our special pavilion on Maria-Theresa-Square where we will let your star float in our colossal glass tube. By the end of the market, there will be an incredible sea of glittering stars!
Where? The Glass Tube right next to Hut 53, Christmas Market at Maria-Theresa-Square.
