It was dedicated to the Year of the Volunteer and the upcoming Paradelphian Games.

Preparations are already carried out in Izhevsk, primarily related to improvement and the creation of an accessible environment.

"I really wanted to see children with disabilities open a holiday in the Central Square," said Dmitry Chistyakov. "They gather full concert halls, but the people often do not see these talented guys. They really need attention, and today's concert is a real minute of glory for them. I'm glad that they get support from the citizens of Izhevsk."

During the event, there was a presentation of the mobile application "Your hour", which is created for the indifferent people, as well as its mass connection among the citizens.

According to Dmitry Chistyakov, the volunteer project "Your hour" exists in the capital of the Republic since the end of last year. The project allows the people of Izhevsk choose an hour of their free time to spend on a good deed. The application only works in two cities in the country - in Izhevsk and Ulyanovsk. Centers for social services, veteran organizations and other institutions working with people in need of assistance apply for gratuitous assistance. These are simple household matters - to help the wheelchair user go for a walk, go to the grocery store, cut wood and other. People see these applications online and, if possible, they can respond. "Our goal is that every resident of the city of Izhevsk has such an application on their smartphone. And then we can do a lot of good deeds," said Dmitry Chistyakov.
