Group of companies "Foxtrot" supported "Fluffy" Journalist Spring-2019

At the Institute of Journalism of the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, the «Fluffy" Journalist Spring-2019 was held for the first time with the support of the GC Foxtrot as part of the development of the “Green Office” social project 

On May 25, the Institute of Journalism hosted a charitable project "Fluffy Institute" (“Pukhnastyi Instytut”) provided by students of the Institute of Journalism of the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. 

The annual festival of graduates "Journalist Spring" («ZhurVesna») became the platform of the charitable party, held by students to popularize the problem of homeless animals in Kiev. The activity was aimed to collect money to help the Gostomel animal shelter, which currently keeps 550 dogs, 80 cats, and consumes 950 kg of feed per day for their maintenance.  

There was a food zone at the party, with delicious meals for all tastes and incredible pastries from the bakery “Okno bakery”, various kinds of honey from “Med Shmed”. Event partners and students will give 20% of sales for a charity to the shelter in Gostomel. The organizers of the project created their own souvenirs; therefore, it was possible to buy stickers, postcards, and shoppers (with the logo of the "Fluffy Institute" or funny phrases). GC Foxtrot, the main partner, traditionally supported the project. The brand was represented by a mascot - its branded fox, with which the participants was taking pictures and winning gifts. Among the entertainments were interesting quizzes, funny contests, photo zones, modern music, and emcees.

The event took place within the framework of the volunteer project "Green Institute" - an environmental project of students of the IJ of the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. 

Information: 9 years of corporate culture of the Institute of Journalism forms an ecological student project "Green Institute". It was created on practical lessons on the subject "Organization of the press office work" as a workshop for the professionalization of education and reached a noticeable scale: students organized 18 events for imaging their Institute, 70 messages, and publications about the project were distributed in the media.

During this time, teachers and students handed over 5.5 tons of waste paper for recycling, and gave received funds to 5 social institutions of Kyiv and Kyiv oblast. They also helped to improve lives of the KNU students, who are currently protecting their country in the Luhansk region.
