On of them “Make a dream come true” is covered on the official website of “Best Winter City" project that was launched on December 1. Here the letters to Father Frost written by orphans and children from poor families will be published. And everyone who visits the website will be able to choose one or a few gifts and pay them by courier service to deliver to the recipient.
