Charity grants by BBCP: 11.950 €
Being a part of the BBCP Community also means supporting the development of children’s creativity. Each year, as a matter of fact, we dedicate a large part of the donations that we receive to projects promoted by the territories where a Big Bench is installed, projects that involve children and art. The winning project is picked through a competition announcement; the alongside data indicate the contributions distributed so far by BBCP. Help us to do more thanks to your support!
