You are making an impact!
(June 6th, 2020)
When you open your messages in one random morning and the first thing you see is “I salute you and I thank you” from Radu Matei, one of the Copiii de Cristal beneficiaries, you realize once more that you made the difference in the life of a young autistic children.
We THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for all your support and for being close to us in this campaign!
Together with you, we have managed to gather so far 1508EUR and 13 income tax forms which will distribute 3.5% of the income tax funds towards Copiii de Cristal. This means that, with your support, we have been able to cover the costs for the month of June.
Help us make their July a warm month, when they can benefit of all the so much needed therapies. Stay close to us and spread the word on how we can change the lives of people that need a place to shine and flourish!

Overcome Covid19's impact
(May 24th, 2020)
As we sit at home, under the lock down measures, for most of us, every new day is a life-masterclass, filled with brainstorming, thinking, finding new passions, listening to music we’ve not played in such a long time, cooking, home-schooling, and a board game night every now and then to make it even more fun.
Will we ever go back to “normal”? Is this our new “normal”? Is it a better “normal” than we used to have before?
We hear these questions over and over again, but what does normal mean is different for each and one of us. What can define “normality” in a world full of different shades for the same word.
For Copiii de Cristal autistic young adults and children, normal means having access to their therapies, to the routine that gives a sense of security, but also a chance to become independent. See how a day in their life used to be two months ago...
As we mentioned before, given the Covid situation, on 24th of March 2020, the two centers had to close doors and stop therapies, as a result of a National lock-down. This decision had a tremendous financial impact. All sponsorship and financial support received from guardian angels stopped during these months.
