International Charity Festival `Children for children`

​​​Charity Festival "Children for children" was held in 1996 in Krasnoyarsk for the first time. Music teacher of  Krasnoyarsk school №2 Nikolai Bolsunovsky was the author of  this idea. The main purpose of the festival is to let children help other children, who are in difficult life situations. All funds received during the festival through various activities (sale of tickets for children's concerts, selling children's crafts, drawings, as well as charitable contributions), are used to help children in need.

Charity Festival "Children for children" acquired the status of an international Festival for the first time in May, 2014, thanks to the participation of children from Krasnoyarsk's sister-city Zilina (Slovak Republic) with the assistance of the International Affairs Division of the City Administration. 34 art-works, stories and music for them were transported to Krasnoyarsk.

International Charity Festival "Children for children - 2015" was held in January, 2015. Children from the Chinese partner-cities - Heihe, Harbin, Changchun and Manzhouli took part in the Festival. The majority of works were bought by the guests and participants of the Festival.
