Usually, taking part in such actions, artists use the eloquent images as logotypes. Yevheniya Hapchynska, known for wonderful illustrations to child's books, followed the atypical way, depicting a simple girl with a simple bear in hands. The thing that the symbol of Czech action of money collection for gamma-knife was also a bear turned out to be just a successful coincidence.
