As part of the campaign, children from all parts of Russia will draw pictures of what the world should be like in future. Numerous workshops will open in Moscow, where children will express their view of the world. Children's drawings are already been collected in the cities of Voronezh and Korolyov, Yelena Zaichenko, the campaign's director, said. Children from Togliatti gathered 3kg of drawings on this subject, and kids from Chechnya are to send their drawings in as well.
The campaign will culminate on November 8 at the Children's Music Theater in Moscow with a ceremony that the children and their parents, politicians, businessmen, athletes and artists will attend. The children's drawings will be displayed at the theater and there will be a free art gallery.
All drawings will be included in a catalogue, Ms. Zaichenko said, and the best pictures will be sent to the president and leaders of foreign countries.
During the campaign, donations will be collected and sent to children's houses.
"It is a holiday that will add new content to the Day of Reconciliation and Accord," Yelena Chuikova, a spokesman for Open Hearts, said, "which was somewhat forgotten in recent years." She said that similar campaigns were planned to be held annually on November 7, she said.
