Bonne International Raises Funds For Children's Charity To Russia With Love

LONDON, December 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Bonne International's Recruitment Manager, Anna Gremitskikh, took part in Nike's Run to the Best half-marathon, an annual event which sees musicians and bands playing at various locations along the runners' route. 2012's half-marathon took place on the 28 th of October, beginning and ending at the O2 Arena, with 12,000 participants, many of whom ran in aid of charities; Ms Grimitskikh took part on behalf of To Russia with Love, a children's charity founded by Debbie Deegan, a close friend to Bonne International. Fourteen years ago, Ms Deegan adopted a seven year-old girl, Zina, from a Russian orphanage, and set up the charity after promising Zina she would find a way to take care of the friends she had made there. Since then, her dedication has helped to improve the lives of more than 500 orphaned Russian children through renovating the orphanages themselves, developing care and education programmes, hiring more staff, and providing a greater quality of life overall.

Before she began training for the half-marathon, Ms Gremitskikh set a target of EUR 10,000, and has so far raised EUR 8,000; Bonne International's nannies, colleagues and clients generously donated, and one anonymous donor pledged EUR 2,855. Their three preschools in Moscow support To Russia with Love whenever they can, donating vanloads of toys and essentials, as well as sending a Father Christmas to visit the children with gifts. Bonne International is incredibly proud of Ms Gremitskikh's dedication to the charity, and is determined to raise the further EUR 2,000 they need to reach their target.

When To Russia with Love told the children they work with about Ms Gremitskikh's efforts, many of them drew pictures wishing her good luck, a touching gesture which only added as a further incentive to drive her on.
