Three Kings charity collection underway around the country
The traditional Three Kings charity collection organized by the non-profit organization Charita, which was launched with a celebratory mass at St. Vitus Cathedral on Sunday, is now underway around the country. Last year this popular nation-wide charity collection brought in over 80 million crowns in aid of physically, mentally and socially disadvantaged persons. Around 60,000 volunteers are taking part, going from home to home dressed as the three kings, singing carols and asking people for donations. The collection, now in its fifteenth year, is open until January 14th.
