NATALIA VODIANOVA: “The Fund Fair allows you to connect with your inner child and reminds you again how important it is to feel that sense of happiness and the thrill of good fortune and opportunity that a funfair brings. The Naked Heart Foundation team works very hard to inspire these wonderful feelings in thousands of children and it is nice to think that the more fun our guests have, the more fun we can bring to the lives of the children we are helping. Hip-hip hooray!!”
