Employees of the Foxtrot Group of Companies and the brands it develops prepared home-made food, hand-made crafts and children’s books. There were several more participants of the charitable event – employees of the Giraffe coffee house (that finds itself on the ground floor of the Foxtrot office at Dorohozhychi) and two children’s book publishers – Mamino and Nebo Booklab Publishing that directed their proceeds or a part of them to the board school.
