Agnieszka and Urszula Radwanskie - famous tennis players from Poland decided to show they are also champions at helping people and joined the "Gentle Pack" project. They prepared the help to one of Krakowian families.
Mrs Helena lives with husband and three sons - twins Krzysiek and Tomek (23 y.o.) and Damian (22 y.o.). Tomek has cerebral palsy. That's why Helena couldn't work - she stayed at home because Tomek needed care. Mr Mieczysław lost his job in steelworks and even though he managed to find another one he doesn't earn as much as money as he used to.
'We decided to help this family because it suffers a serious illness. Tomek is in similar age and he is disabled. That's why we chose right them' - said Urszula.
Sisters managed to find a time on Wednesday afternoon during trainings. Fortunately not many people visit supermarkets in the middle of the week so everything went fast. After a warm-up at detergents section, they quickly attacked the food.
'It was the first time we did shopping for someone we didn't know. It was a big fun! We wanted to give a lot of pleasure to this family. When you make a gift, it seems everything is important then. - added Agnieszka - Besides we wanted to give this family something they didn't ask for. Something from us.
Girls were running among the racks, very quickly filling the basket. - It's not on the list! - shouts Agnieszka. - And what? Take it anyway! - answers Urszula, putting to the baskets three and not two chocolate bars.
'Always when there's an occation we want to help. But it is the first time we help in such way: indirectly and actively. It suits us so well. - answered Agnieszka asked about why they joined the action. - Besides we can help concretely as we know what this help will be good, we know what the family really needs.
The sisters didn't forget about christmas ornaments to make this family's Hollydays even better: - We would like to wish them Merry Christmas and well-being in New Year. And of course Bon Appetit! - laughs Agnieszka, while Urszula in the last moment runs to add the chocolate Santa Claus to the basket.
- We'd like to encourage everybody to take part in "Gentle Pack": even those who have a tight schedule will find a moment to prepare a present to needy people - it's not important if the gift is big, average or small. Every help will be good - girls summed up and afterwards they ran for the next training.
