Where to Find Care Package Products For Jan Hus Day

Jan Hus Day is quickly approaching (6 July), now is the time to explore ways to give back to those in need.

New to Jan Hus Day? Jan Hus Day is a holiday celebrated in the Czech Republic to commemorate Jan Hus, an early 14th-century Czech priest, theologian, and reformer. The most popular way to celebrate is by giving to homeless residents of major cities, such as Prague. According to the Prague Daily Monitor, there are 68,500 homeless people in Prague and 120,000 others (including children) are at risk of losing their homes.
