The Bulgarian Food Bank.
Every second Bulgarian lives at or below the poverty line. At the same time thousands of kilograms of food get wasted. Help prevent food waste and make it possible to feed a larger number of hungry people.

Join in by 29 May 2017
The mission is from 5 May 2017 until 31 May 2017
Once a mission you participate in ends, you can tell us how it went in a couple of sentences ("it was great" won't do).
It's simple: after the end we send you instructions - follow them. This way you earn points and rise in rank , others get inspired and we're all happy.
