Martina Oslejskova,Broadway Academy director, instructor and Vivat Broadway organizer answers all your questions:
Why have you and Broadway Academy decided to help premature children?
Martina: We are annually helping Montreal Children’s hospital with toys donation. Our “Broadway family” donates every year approximately three fully loaded cars of toys. Last donation was a bit different. Not only we have donated the most toys in our six years donation history, but we have discovered the hospital is experiencing shortage in clothing for premature children. These are usually 2-5lb and for such reason it is almost impossible to find proper clothes for them. My mission was set that day – supply MCH with special robes for preemies in incubators.
What specifically are you going to donate?
Martina: Our goal is to donate 52 preemie size hospital robes, 52 preemie size sleepers, 52 blankets. All for 52 special units in MCH.
Where will you seek the premature clothing?
Martina: All robes are made by Ms. Wafaa Latif. Wafaa is our former student and a fashion designer. We are grateful she has joined our event and agreed on making all these special robes for free.
What will you use the funds for?
Martina: All raised money will be used to purchase sleepers, blankets, fabric and all other necessary sewing material.
