MAHAK break-the-donation boxes festival was held on October 11–12, 2012 serving more than 3000 visitors. One new thing that happened during this festival was the introduction of ‘Gold Ribbon’ as the symbol of ‘Raising Public Awareness about Childhood Cancer’ in a specific stall where complimentary newsletters and brochures were offered.
 
As advocates, our call to ‘Going Gold’ means increasing public knowledge about the Gold Ribbon and what it symbolizes. By associating a symbol with our mission, MAHAK intends to raise awareness and support for patients and their families in the fight against childhood cancer.
 
There were also nearly 50 stalls offering international and domestic cuisine, international cocktails, ice creams, cakes, salads, accessories, t-shirts, shawls and scarves, cushions, table mats, stationery, make up, balloons, candles, toys, music, Hafez poetry, and vibrant plants among other things.
 
The atmosphere benefitted immeasurably by the celebrities and social VIPs who mingled openly with everyone around.  MAHAK is fortunate to enjoy the support of all the strata of society including well known artists and athletes who not only actively support cancer-stricken children but also make them happy by their sheer presence. 
 
Revenue generated by the Breaking-the-Donation boxes’  Festival:
The Bazaar managed to raise 1,860,598,245 Rials which as always will be spent on medicine for and treatment of children suffering from cancer.
 
MAHAK fully appreciates all the kindness and support benevolent members and volunteers selflessly provide which, through these types of activities, help children remain children, giving them hope and conviction, preventing them from becoming reclusive, and thus assisting them in maximizing their chances for recovery and returning to normal life afterwards.
