The All-Russian Father Frost from Veliky Ustyug held a press conference with residents of Izhevsk and Syktyvkar on November 30. A correspondent of the news agency “Udmurtia” attended at the event entitled “Journey of Father Frost with NTV”.
This “Journey of Father Frost” is already the fifth in a row. But if earlier the wizard traveled independently to the cities of Russia, then in 2020, due to the coronavirus, they decided to hold the event in an online format. Izhevsk and Syktyvkar became the first cities with which Father Frost held a press conference this year. He has previously visited the capital of Udmurtia in 2017 and 2018.
Of course, the pandemic has made its own adjustments. I want to hug each of you with impatience. As soon as there is an opportunity, as soon as you call me to Izhevsk, I will immediately go to meet you
During a press conference with Izhevsk, Father Frost met children from the Social rehabilitation center for minors in the Kiyasov District. There are guys from all over Udmurtia in it. The social institution is only 10 years old, but it has its own peculiarity – it is a home atmosphere. The center created all conditions for its pupils to make them feel at home.
Father Frost answered questions about his wife, about friendship with Fathers Frost from other regions of Russia and countries, about favorite pets, his age, favorite gifts and even wearing a mask during the press conference.
The main goal of the New Year's action “Journey of Father Frost with NTV” is to help those who especially need a New Year's miracle and magic gifts: children with disabilities and diseases, children left without parental care, as well as families in difficult life situations. In just four years, Father Frost together with the team of the NTV channel traveled 51 thousand kilometers – from Vladivostok to Kaliningrad, visited about 330 children's social institutions and 300 large and low-income families, giving them 500 tons of gifts.
The action “Journey of Father Frost with NTV” in 2020 will cover 35 cities of Russia. It will be possible to follow the journey of the All-Russian Father Frost from Veliky Ustyug on the air and social networks of the NTV channel.
Also the NTV channel launched a talent festival for children from social institutions because of Father Frost's love for poetry, songs and dances. The guys can take part in it both solo and as part of a group. To do this, you need to prepare any creative performance – a song, dance, playing a musical instrument, reading poetry or even a flash mob. The speech must be filmed and published on a personal page with the hashtag #ТАЛАНТЫНТВ in one of the social networks – VKontakte, Odnoklassniki, Instagram or Facebook. The best works can be broadcast on NTV.
In addition, everyone can become Father Frost! NTV and the charitable foundation “You are super!” launched joint action #ЯДЕДМОРОЗ. Everyone who joins it will become a kind wizard and will be able to help fulfill the dreams of children and adults.
