On June 1, during the International Children's Day, a leading restaurant chain McDonald`s
launched a charity campaign in cooperation with the Latvian Foster Family Association
, encouraging everyone to donate books for Latvian foster families. From the 1st to the 8th of June all McDonald's restaurants offered donation sites, where everyone could leave used or new books. As a gratitude for those who donated a book McDonald`s gave an ice cream "Croissant" free of charge. Thanks to McDonald`s
