The aim of the GOOD ANGEL system is to provide families, in which a member has come down with a serious illness, with regular monthly financial assistance in the amount of several thousand Czech crowns. In this way, we make it possible for Good Angels to increase the monthly income of families with children facing financial distress due to serious illness by an average of 20%.
- Contributions from Good Angels are re-distributed each month down to the very last cent®. The operating expenses of the endowment fund are financed out of the private funds of the founders.
- Each Good Angel is provided with access to their Angel account, where they can clearly see who their contribution has helped.
- Good Angels make a monthly contribution in an amount of their choosing.
We believe that even monthly assistance of just CZK 2,000 can help bridge the period of financial distress often experienced by families with children soon after the onset of an oncological or other serious illness. In addition to immense stress and pain, such period also entails increased expenses, while the family income declines substantially.
