For example, to cultivate children’s imaginations and develop their interest in the arts, Gratis holds a yearly drawing competition organized around various themes “My Play Garden Dream” and “My Beautiful Family”. In 2014, Gratis took the competition to another level, preparing product packs featuring children’s artwork. The winning entrees were then developed into package design for various products sold in Gratis stores. All income was donated to TEGV, a national foundation for children’s education.
