Solidarity in the Rain

Mercat Peces Puces Igualada (1)

On Saturday May 31 we were in the Peces Puces craft market held in Igualada to continue raising support and funds to help Àlex. Although the weather was not good, we are very pleased to have been in this market. Rain and wind spoiled a day and a market very well organized by our friends of la Bastida.

However, we can make a good evaluation of our participation in this event. Despite having only the morning, we were able to present our initiative to attendees, getting their support and esteem. Also, many people were interested in our merchandising and numbers of Christmas Lottery, a part of the donations that will allow us to continue helping Àlex. This is what comforts and encourages us to keep fighting.

Thank you very much to all who have made this possible!

We will spend this weekend in Cervera – City of Giants in 2014.

ciutat gegantera

Days 6, 7 and 8 of June, Cervera will be Catalonia’s Giants City 2014. Thanks to Cervera’s Council we will be there with our stand with our solidarity personalized items, presenting the initiative and trying to get more help for Àlex!

You can find us on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 21 p.m. in San Miguel Square and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 14 p.m. in Sindicat Square. We are very pride of going beyond our city to explain our initiative!

Thank you, Capellades

Mercat Figueter Capellades

On Sunday 16th March we were at the “Mercat Figueter de Capellades” to present our initiative and to get funds to continue helping Àlex. The experience was a great success and was ​​possible thanks to Gràcia Bartroli, who gave us loot in front of her store “El racó de la Gràcia“.

During this market, which was held in a beautiful day, we showed the initiative to everyone who visited our stand, showing the solidarity and personalized items from the Associació Nash Alex Sasha, which allowed us to collect more funds. It was a pleasure for us to meet all the people at Capellades and spread our initiative.

The “Mercat Figueter de Capellades” is the main annual fair of this village next to Igualada. This fair has began centuries ago, when people used to sell different Easter products, such as salted fish, cod and nuts. Among them, the figs were the most popular product (and that is why its name). Now this fair shows the commerces, industries and cultural tradition of this village to the general public.

Therefore, Capellades thank you!

We will be at the Igualada’s Chritmas fair

Fira de NadalWe have prepared another great activity for this December in order to keep helping Àlex and raise more funds to mitigate their Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and get a better life quality. In the following weekends, we will be at Fira de Nadal d’Igualada, a traditional Christmas fair that it will be celebrated at Igualada’s city center.

We will be selling several merchandising products to help promote our cause and keep helping Àlex. In this fair you can purchase customized shirts, polyester bags, bracelets, reusable cups, plates and lottery numbers. All the benefits obtained will improve on Àlex.

The Fira de Nadal d’Igualada is celebrated at down-town at the following streets and squares: Plaça Pius XII, carrer de Santa Maria, Plaça del Bruc and Plaça de l’Ajuntament. The event is celebrated the following weekends of December: 7th/8th, the 14th/15th and the 21th/22th, from 10AM until 8:30PM.

We have collaborated with several friends, who has helped us in this event: the Floristeria NUS (Igualada), who had created a traditional Christmas space, Decotext Llar (Igualada), who dressed the table with a black tablecloth; Tallers Clapera who had created Christmas decorations, but especially the Comissió de Festes Barri de la Font-Vella d’Igualada and Fira d’Igualada, the organizers of this Christmas fair, and who had accepted our participation. We would like to thank everyone for your support!

900€ to keep helping Àlex

10197777236_14ccb33146_c

It’s a great pleasure to announce that we have collected 911,16€ to keep the treatments for Àlex at the party we had done the past 5th of October! We are very grateful to all the people who had helped and participated in this great party!

Undoubtedly, you have made possible this result. The 911,16€ that we have collected have been added to the money we have achieved during these months, either by the charity bracelets, by your contributions you have made ​​to our account or by the money we had collected at the first party for Àlex at laBastida few months ago. Thanks to those efforts, Àlex can continue to receive the psychotherapeutic treatments needed to mitigate the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), to get a better life, and keep having happy and fulfilling life.

We sold 365 tickets in this second party that we did at the Cal Carner space, Igualada. We had expected to sell more tickets and get more public, but despite this, we are very grateful to all people who came. In this party, we could continue spreading our work and promote our Nash Alex Sasha association to the city.

The one who really enjoyed the party was Àlex himself. He stayed at the party all day long, from 11AM to 11PM. He didn’t realize why the party was organized, but he had a great time, as the same as Vika, her sister, who also participated. For us, see Àlex so happy offset all the tiredness and exhaustion and all time we take to prepare the party.

We want to express eternal gratitude for all the people who came to the party, but also the musicians and artists, volunteers and supporters who, in charity, worked at the party and help us to help Àlex. Without you, this would not have been possible. That is why want to appreciate your dedication to sharing with you all the people and companies who have worked with us.

Thank you all!
