198,687 roubles

were collected by HSE Lyceum students during charity campaigns that took place on September 1.

For the second time, the HSE Lyceum took part in Children Instead of Flowers, a charity campaign in which students and teachers celebrate Knowledge Day without traditional bouquets. Instead, all the money that students would have spent on flowers was given to charity funds. The majority of the money collected was given to the Faith hospice foundation (86,452 roubles) and the Gift of Life foundation for children with oncohaematological and other serious diseases (69,835 roubles).

On September 1, as part of the Charity Market HSE Lyceym project – young people sell sweatshirts and bags with the HSE Lyceum logo that they have created themselves – students managed to collect 23,400 roubles to support a shelter for homeless animals.

Another 19,000 roubles were collected for the Konstantin Khabensky fund during a traditional bake sale as part of the Lyceym Outreach social project.
