We declare, that the charity activity for children will be the permanent one led by The Krasnals. As the 'Krasnals' - gnomes - we naturally take care about the children.
Paintings destined for the auctions will concern the subject connected with children.
'300 miles to Heaven' comes from the Polish movie which is the shocking story of two boys living in communistic reality before 1989. The story is based on facts. Brothers decide to run away from Poland to Sweden, to better world. They hide below the track.
This is the picture of great desire, but the price is high - they became separated from their parents.
At the other hand this is the symbol of real revolution, risk, taken by children.
