Campaign in Slovenia has been very successful and we are very proud on how many prominent Slovenian politicians, businessmen, artists, representatives, sports figures and others joined us.
We would like to thank all donors that enabled implementation of this campaign of Slovenia and everyone that has supported the idea of campaing and helped us raising funds for the purchase of leg prostheses for Slovenian paraglider Simon Vogrinec who lost both his legs in mine accident on the slope of mountain Jahorina in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Next year we will roll up pant legs again and make sure that our message reaches even wider population.
