Thursday, 13th of November 2014, Bucharest, the Association for Community Relations in partnership with the American Chamber of Commerce organized the 11th edition of the  People for People Gala. This year there was a record number of nominees: 145 people at various categories.
The category "The most involved executive director in the activity of fundraising for a NGO' had several nominations including the directors from Habitat for Humanity Romania and WWF Romania. But the award was given to Mrs. Anna Cristina Burtea, Executive Director of Heart of a Child Foundation for raising over 225.000 Euro in order to ensure the continuity of social programs carried out by the foundation in Galati.

Among the selecting criteria we can mention: the constant involvement in fundraising of the nominated person, the initiative to mobilize people and resources, the existence of a fundraising strategy and a clear, realistic budgeting target activity and also the existence of the necessary instruments for monitoring the fundraising activity.

"This award means so much for us, since there were many nominees, very well-known, big organizations. I owe you this award! Thanks to all of our friends who redirected the 2%, our constant donors from United Kingdom, thanks to companies like BRD Groupe Societe Generale, Alewijnse Marine Ltd., but also to all local companies who directed the 20% of the profit tax to support our activity. Thanks also to the authorities who understood the importance of our programs. It is remarkable how we managed in 2013 and 2014 to find funding sources for all our projects. We thank those who understood more and more our mission, to all of you who make it possible for us to continue to change the lives of children. Thanks to all of you that have been so close to us and we are also proud to announce that we are celebrating 18 years of activity of Heart of a Child Foundation. I want you all to know that without you, we would not have been changing the lives of so many children.

It was a constant effort and it was not an easy one. Thanks to the money we raised we can support programs in Galati, for more than 350 children from families at risk and children with disabilities. It is not only an important amount but also the manner and the efficiency of its usage, and for this reason we are proud to be recognized as winners of this award. It will be much more than just a pleasure ... it will be a joy if you all will be supporting us to build bridges between people, between those who help and those who need help, therefore changing lives.

Thank you once again and God help us to be creators of dreams and wishes for all the children and the families we help, for the  years to come", Anna Cristina Burtea, Executive Director of Heart of a Child Foundation.
