Eurobuild Gala making dreams come true

Eurobuild Gala making dreams come true

The ‘I Have a Dream’ foundation has distributed some of the money from that was raised during the Eurobuild Awards gala last December. The dreams of nine-year-old Łukasz, fifteen-year-old Julia and five-year-old Julka have been fulfilled, thanks to the generosity of those who participated in the event organised by Eurobuild. Nine-year-old Łukasz was able to visit Tenerife, staying in a hotel facing onto the beach with a view of the ocean. “We used the amenities provided by the hotel throughout our stay, playing football, basketball, pool, tennis, table tennis, darts and we swam in the swimming pool. Apart from all the attractions at the hotel and in the town, we also visited other parts of the island. We travelled to the biggest volcano on Tenerife, Teide, and reached the top via a cable car, where we could admire the view from app. 3,500m above sea-level. In addition to that, we also sailed a few kilometres from the coast to where we could see the dolphins and whales swimming in the water. On another day we visited an entertainment park, where we went down all the slides and had a great time. We were lucky with the weather throughout the entire stay, enjoying the sun and some rather high temperatures,” said Łukasz’s carer. The dreams of fifteen-year-old Julia also came true, as she received an iPad Air 2. “We knew that the dream was about to come true during our last meeting, but we struggled hard not to reveal the secret. We were also aware that Julka was not expecting anything. But our satisfaction increased with each of her smiles – and she was smiling all the time when she received that dream box,” a volunteer of the ‘I Have a Dream’ foundation told us. An Xbox Kinect along with the Kinectimals game was the dream of five-year-old Julka. “Julka’s dad and Krzysiek, a volunteer, connected the console straight away. We tried to build something from Lego to pass the time. However, it was not so easy to focus on the Lego while her dream present was being set up. After some time Julka put the bricks away and we could watch the equipment being connected. On its own the console would not have been such a delight for the girl without the game that she had also been dreaming of. As soon as the console was connected Julka had to find out whether and how it worked. She loaded the game and was away! She had such fun choosing the animal she would be looking after in the game – and was literally jumping up and down with joy, unable to take her eyes off the panda who shook her hand and repeated everything she did. After Julka had taught her panda, who was called Kin, to follow her orders, she turned around, jumped, clapped her hands and lay down – and Kin then repeated everything she’d done,” said the volunteer. The ‘I Have a Dream’ foundation (‘Mam Marzenie’) was established in Kraków on June 14th, 2003 as an independent and self-sufficient organisation staffed only by volunteers. Its mission is to fulfil the dreams of children between three and eighteen who suffer from life-threatening diseases. The foundation started out in Kraków, Warsaw and Poznań. Since 2007 it has been operating nationwide and currently has 16 branches in cities and towns such as Białystok, Bydgoszcz, Gorzów Wielkopolski, Katowice, Kielce, Kraków, Lublin, Łódź, Olsztyn, Opole, Poznań, Rzeszów, Szczecin, Gdańsk, Warsaw and Wrocław.
