Our dearest donors,
recently we have been incredibly busy and overwhelmed by the campaign The homeless month (sorry, website only in slovak language). We run a campaign to raise awareness and funds for 4 NGOs that do enormously innovative and great job to help homeless people find their way back to life.
Not only they offer a shelter, hygiene and food. They are friends - they see a person, not a homeless man. And they help to find the way for the people who have lost themselves.
Thank you, our donors! Without you we would not be able to organize all the events that raise awareness and help financially for these 4 NGOs - Depaul Slovakia, Vagus, Proti prúdu and Divadlo bez domova.
And we cordially invite you to the benefit concert - 13th December at the homeless shelter at Ivánska 32 in Bratislava. Here more info.
Thank you again and again. You enable us to help those who need it. If you can, please keep supporting us, we promise to do our best so that your donation has the greatest positive impact as it is possible :)
we send you greetings from our office, where we are preparing our next campaign - Tough-guy. We will raise money for 10 NGO-s, that help people fight with the barriers and overcome the obstacles in their life. Thanks to you, we can do this work and we can support the NGOs, that do an amazing work.

These are those that you help by supporting project Great country. Thank you!
Thank to your donations we were able to help many diverse communities all over Slovakia. Since the begining of this year we have organized a meeting for more than 50 NGO and started another adventurous year full of campaigns and events that fundraise, help and teach how to communicate and raise money for helping other.
One of the campaigns that we organized thanks to your donations was Restaurant Day at Great country. We were serving food, fundraising and talking to people about how easy it is to help others.
We don't stop and we still need your help. July is coming and so is the charity café at Pohoda festival. Lets build it together and create an island of concentrated greatness in Trencín, Slovakia for the three days of this festival. Will we make it and fundraise only another 1500$?
Our dearest supporter,
first of all, we want to warmly thank you. Great country wouldn't have been great without you.IPlease let me briefly summarize how you helped us do something good this year.
Great country tries to help NGOs in Slovakia with individual fundraising. It was launched in 2009 and since then we helped more than 100 organizations to communicate and raise funds online.
Thanks to you we were able to provide our fundraising consultancy services and tools for 54 projects in 2013. These projects reached 670 donors and raised more than 87,000 dollars. Your gifts helped us to facilitate the necessary on-line tools and organize campaigns throughout the year.
Great country was at a popular summer festival Pohoda in June 2013 and one month later we organized a campaign called 24-hours that helped our organizations fundraise more than 7,600 dollars from individual donors in one day!
Thank You! We wouldn’t make it without you.
This year we are planning to repeat the popular Great country café at the Pohoda festival. Help us cover the costs so that we can split the net revenue from the sale of coffee between the organizations. And so you will enable the continuation of helping people with disabilities, emancipate local communities, fight corruption, revive culture in the streets of our cities or overcome barriersforhomeless people or others excluded from the society.
