Since 2015, we have been supporting charity:water on their mission to end the water crisis.
We have created the Water Drop Collection to raise money for charity:water.
Until today, our donations and campaigns have funded 3 water projects in Mali, Uganda and Mozambique. Check out the history of our completed campaigns here.
If you are passionate about clean water, there are many ways to get involved – you can support a campaign like ours or start your own, and you can join The Spring – charity:water’s community of monthly donors bringing clean water to people in need. However you choose to make an impact – we thank you for making a difference!
A FAMILY IN NEED – MEET NASKO, NELLY AND VICTOR
In September 2012 the Bulgarian school “Khan Asparuh” in Sunnyvale, CA and the Bulgarian community in North California launched a campaign to raise money for a Bulgarian family in need – Nasko, Nelly and their little boy Victor, who live in the Bay area. After a ski accident 3 years ago, Nasko is in a wheelchair. His wife Nelly takes care of him day and night. The family was in an urgent need of a car as their existing car could not be repaired. This campaign was raising money for a new car, which will make their lives a little easier.
I was very excited to join in and was able to raise and donate $725 to the family. Subsequently, Nasko and his family are the owners of a Dodge van and we are so happy for them!
“MERRY X-MAS FOR ALEX”
This is Alex – a 6 years old angel. When he was 4 he was diagnosed with Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of childhood cancer. Since then he’s had endless tests and scans done, he has started a chemo therapy, and he has been spending way too much time in a hospital than a child ever should.
On December 23, 2012 the Bulgarian school “Khan Asparuh” in Sunnyvale, CA organized a Christmas celebration, part of which was a campaign raising money for a “Merry Christmas for Alex”.
KAYA Jewelry was invited to participate in the sales event and we raised and donated $450 to Alex’s parents.

CHARITABLE X-MAS FAIR AT THE BULGARIAN SCHOOL, Sunnyvale
In December 2013, together with other moms from the Bulgarian School in Sunnyvale, CA we organized a charitable fair to raise funds needed for different children’s programs at the school. The event took place during the school’s X-mas celebration and had many more vendors compared to the previous year. At the fair our guests could find paintings by world famous artist Rosa Goneva, our handmade gemstone jewelry, handmade accessories and X-mas decoration; delicious pastries, cookies, cakes and other yummy Bulgarian food.
Guests were also able to join an auction and bid for an original painting donated by the Bulgarian artist Rosa Goneva. The painting was sold for $1000 with all the money going directly to the school.
