ANYA – 20 years in the life of a Russian orphan.
ANYA is a unique online initiative to support Irish charity ‘To Russia With Love’. The idea is simple – watch the film and if you like it, say thanks by sending a donation to the charity. We like to look on it as visual busking!
Donating is easy. Either text “HUG” to 50300 and donate €4 (IRELAND ONLY), send a tip via the TIP JAR (all tips will be forward on to the charity) or visit: torussiawithlove.ie/donate.html and donate online. Thanks.
