Smile as a gift

The Christmas benefit concert Úsmev ako dar (Smile as a gift) is the oldest charity concert in Slovakia and Central Europe. Each year the event is joined by around 1000 children from orphanages and foster care from the whole Slovakia. The 37th edition is supported by popular artists, presenters, singers, actors and actresses and dancers. The main purpose of the concert is to raise awareness about foster care and offer systematic help to children living in orphanages and foster families in Slovakia. It spreads the idea of the very importance of an attachment person for children, lasting relationships, sibling attachments, the need of safety, adequate stimulus for healthy development and trust in oneself and others. Every Christmas, “Úsmev” brings its spectators a programme full of emotions and joy with generous message.
