“The current crisis has affected many of us, but it’s important not to give up. I wanted to contribute to the efforts that the medical staff is taking (…) and the idea of a festival has somehow come up naturally. I hope it is an opportunity to get people together through music, although from home, and to urge them to do good,” said Bogdan Doltu, co-founder Mixtopia and Maidan Grup.
“#WeMakeItTogether is the message that Daruieste Viata is running its fundraising campaign for the modular hospital and for the medical equipment and devices needed in the fight against COVID-19 (…) Solidarity and responsibility are two important things that we have to prove during this time”, said in her turn Carmen Uscatu, co-founder Daruieste Viata.
Emil Ionescu, General Managing Partner iaBilet.ro stated that the SolidarLocal campaign is coming to continue efforts to equip hospitals. “We are always happy when thoughtful people who want to do good are coming together joining their forces,” he added.
