International Day for Protection of Children, observed in many countries as Children's Day on June 1 since 1950. Children's Day is often celebrated on other days as well. In Russia we celebrate two children dates the Universal Children’s Day on November 20 and the International Children’s Day on June 1.
According to the recent census, there are more than 26 million children in Russia.By tradition in Russia, these dates are celebrated by holding charity concerts and campaigns. Many celebrities including artists, journalists, politicians, athletes and businessman collect donations for children funds, hospitals and orphan houses. The main goal of such campaigns is to provide concrete help to the children who need it.Eighteen months ago, the First Channel and Rusfond united in the fight for children's lives. And today viewers collected more than a billion rubles, which means that more than seven hundred children have been saved.
