On the occasion of their 10th anniversary, the Minu Unistuste Päev charity foundation opened a first-of-a-kind in Estonia photo exhibition showing seriously and chronically ill children. The exhibition is held in the open areas of Tallinn’s Fotografiska’s 1st floor. Lenna, Minu Unistuste Päev’s patron, performed during the event that took place on July 8th.
Minu Unistuste Päev’s touring exhibition has an important meaning for the foundation. Out of thousands of photographs taken during the last 10 years, only 12 got chosen for the exposition. Every picture tells a story of a child and Minu Unistuste Päev with joy, brightness, sadness and pain going hand in hand. Every story is thought-provoking and profound.
The charity foundation Minu Unistuste Päev fulfils the wishes of seriously and chronically ill children in order to support their and their parents’ mental health and plays an important part in the treatment process as a whole. An average of 100 dream events are organized every year, half of which are personal dream days and the second half – various group events. The foundation gathers over 100 volunteers from all over Estonia.
With the opening of the exhibition, the 10th anniversary of Minu Unistuste Päev was celebrated. Lenna, Minu Unistuste Päev’s patron and event’s main performer was also present, together with children known from the exhibition’s pictures, their families, the foundation’s supporters, contributors and partners.
Lenna has been Minu Unistuste Päev’s patron for 7 years and in her opinion, the foundation has changed a lot. The foundation has certainly developed by expanding its skills and experiences and has proven its abilities in this specific field. At the same time, it has been a lovely, warm and frugal family since the beginning and still is today. – says the singer.
I am happy to support those who need it. Being a public figure, I have an opportunity to use that reputation to create something good, valuable. Care and notice are definitely values worth keeping. I think I managed to raise awareness on the importance of positive emotions’ impact on healing. – says Lenna.
