Let’s present our Centennial Gifts: Let’s act, create, and volunteer. Let’s be active, not indifferent citizens: those who care, who create a more pleasant environment, a stronger community, and take care of others. Let’s spend time for Lithuania!
A project “Centennial Gifts” aims to grow volunteer initiatives, attract more people, encourage create new volunteer initiatives in communities, neighbourhoods, work teams or families. More volunteers means more gifts to Lithuania and a nicer celebration of our State’s anniversary.
