Dear friends, passers-by, soul-mates,

Today I am opening to you and I depend on your trust in my Potential and my ability to… make a change. 

I’m currently fundraising to raise money for a project I am incredibly passionate about launching in Bulgaria- a program which will empower young people to be active citizens and contributors to their communities, in addition to walking the path of self-creation with confidence.

My life has been immensely transformed by good people who have believed in me. From the very first months when I started my charity in 9th grade, miracles have happened and good people have opened their hearts and given support to my small, but crazily enthusiastic attempts to bring change, meaning and happiness in the world around us. The support I have received in the implementation of my ideas has been so empowering! It has given me the confidence that my ideas MATTER, that there is always a way to turn your dreams into reality!

I want to find more Bulgarian youngsters who dare to be change-makers and contributors and work with them, train them, help them run their projects and continue creating exchange of ideas, inspiration, support and knowledge.

If you want to help me, you can do so at least in two ways:

  • Donate as much as you can afford here: https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/6ds7e/ab/42GdSb? Or directly through Paypal using my e-mail (magi.nazer@gmail.com). I have set up an account to use just for the project and every contribution will be displayed at the “Contributors” page of the project website for more transparency (unless you don’t want to);
  • Share: with anybody who might be enthusiastic to help!

Let’s prove that inspiration is contagious!

​Thank you in advance!​

With much love and appreciation,

Maggie​ Nazer
