Former world champion Alina Shaternikova told about the sale of his champion belt to help soldiers ATO.
“An example I took the action of our famous gymnasts Natalia Godunko. She sold her gold world championship medal. The money raised from this auction, in my opinion, spent on the purchase of equipment for the army.
I thought, why don’t I do that. Via Natasha went to the guys who worked on these auctions. Sold the belt for 20 thousand hryvnia. Immediately decided that I wanted to give this money to address someone from the soldiers who were in the Kiev military hospital.
Went to the hospital, the doctor showed me guys who is need of funds. One boy was wounded by a sniper in the neck, he needed a replacement trachea. 10 thousand I gave him. The second boy was wounded near Lugansk. He gave money for the rehabilitation.
My goal is very simple. If I can financially or mentally to support the soldiers who defend our land, I do it. It’s not for show, it is a natural desire. Try to regularly address to do charity work. For example, my family and I go to Kamenetz-Podolsk in the house of the baby, help. Trying though as-that to brighten up the lives of children without parents or from disadvantaged families,” said Shaternikova.
