Recently the international charity event "CALL - CEDAR" was finished. http://uni-space.ru/index/mezhdunarodnaja_blagotvoritelnaja_akcija_quot_pozyvnoj_kedr_quot/0-207
It was dedicated to the memory of cosmonauts and astronauts who died in the space exploration. During the event, the participants - teens and adults interested in space, not only participated in various projects carried out on the basis of the Cosmonaut Training Center, but also raised funds for planting tree seedlings in Star City and Israel.
Among the participants of the campaign was the creator of the cartoon "Hedgehog in the Fog", artist and film director, People's Artist of Russia Yuri Norstein. He gave to the Fund an author’s postcard and wrote on it a few touching words: "In the picture, under the maple tree, stands the hero of the Japanese folklore - Chikusai. The foliage of the tree showers him and drops in his hat. He listens to the tree, as a doctor listens to the patient. Trees are vulnerable, especially to the human aggression. Who, if not us, the people, can and must save the trees, life, the planet. Greetings to the charity event - Cedar! Feasibly ready to participate in it. 19.01.2013 Yu. Norshteyn.
