Two months ago, the Theodora Foundation organized a drawing competition in Spain for all the children in hospitals with the help and collaboration from their “Doctors of Happiness”. Since we have been donating a percentage of our Pocoyo DVD sales in Spain for years, we wanted to do our bit and provide them with all our support on this cause.
You cannot even begin to imagine the stories behind each drawing. Some of us within the team could not hold back the tears when we heard them. These children are the best example of what it means to have a true determination to better oneself. Do you want to see the winning drawings?
Last week, the children who made the winning drawings and their parents paid Zinkia a visit. Some of them traveled more than 600 kilometers to attend such an event!
The Doctors of Happiness and Pocoyo were there, waiting to present them with the certificates they deserved as winners. They were excited and embarrassed in equal measures. Their faces were a picture. They were the winners! They were and ARE. What they did not know was that they were TRULY GREAT from the moment they won the battle against such complex conditions.
Oh! As you might expect, they also received a pack of Pocoyo products
Once the prizes were awarded, it was time for the final surprise. They were to become the first children to see a three-episode premiere of the brand-new Pocoyo season, which will be aired in Spain real soon!
Come on! Let’s have a photo taken with Pocoyo! one of them said. Said and done XD
It was a great day for us. It was one of those days when you go to bed and think about it, and realized it has given your job meaning. All of us who were there admire these kids. Our admiration is as strong as their hope…
Thank you children and CONGRATULATIONS to the winners!
