Bulgaria’s favorite celebrities will shine brighter on the night of Nov 23, 2017, as they will take center stage at the one-of-a-kind Inspiration Leaders Charity Auction. For the sixth year in a row the mission for the success of every child is going to unite inspiring public figures, celebrities, and business leaders to prove that education is a cause which matters to everyone.

The auction, co-organized by Teach For Bulgaria and the Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum, provides the guests from the business sector with the opportunity to bid for two hours of the time of popular actors, musicians, athletes, authors, journalists, entrepreneurs, and other public figures. Many of the inspiration leaders who will be donating their time at the 2017 auction are extreme athletes and adventurers. The guests will have the opportunity to bid for the time of some of the most inspiring Bulgarian entrepreneurs as well. Among the celebrity guests are actors, musicians, chefs, a writer, and TV personas and hosts. You can find out exactly how they will donate their time, only if you take part in the inspiring event on Nov 23.

Register for the auction HERE, if you want to be one of the guests and support Teach For Bulgaria teachers and their professional development.

Find more information about the celebrities donating their time this year below:


Mountain Climber and Environmentalist

Surely, the charismatic Boyan Petrov needs no introduction because his accomplishments are quite impressive and speak for themselves. We are truly grateful that he continues to support Teach For Bulgaria’s cause for yet another year. Boyan Petrov conquered his tenth eight-thousander (Dhaulagiri) in 2017 and is planning to climb Mount Everest in 2018.


Paragliding Pilot

Veselin a.k.a. Veso Ovcharov is one of those lucky people who can fly both figuratively and literally. He is the only professional acrobatic paragliding pilot in Bulgaria and holds the world record for infinity tumbling with his Serbian colleague Petar Loncar. Ovcharov has soared around the world and in 2010 glided over the Himalayas at 5000 meters. You can find out more about his incredible experience, if you watch the documentary called Infinity Himalaya.


Ultramarathon Runner

Krasi is an exceptional supporter of our organization and has helped tremendously in the past few months by participating in various events organized by Teach For Bulgaria. Just last week he visited the students at our partner school in the village of Gorna Malina to share his story with them – the story of an overweight man with bad habits who worked hard and ran hundreds of kilometers participating in ultramarathons all over the world.



Mihaela Fileva who always has a big beautiful smile on her face is one of Bulgaria’s most popular female performers. She is one of the celebrities who chose to support the cause of equal access to high-quality education to every child. We are certain that her highest bidder is going to have a great time, but you can only find out what exactly she has planned to happen during the two donated hours, if you attend the auction.


Fiction Writer and Editor-in-Chief at Ciela Publishing

One of the best contemporary Bulgarian writers, Zachary Karabashliev, is going to participate in the auction only a few months after his latest novel was published. Zachary definitely has a lot to say about the publishing world not only as a writer, but also as a publisher and the Editor-in-Chief at one of the biggest publishing houses in Bulgaria – Ciela.


Entrepreneur, Chaos Group

Peter Mitev is the co-founder and CEO of Chaos Group – the company which developed one of the top computer-generated imagery rendering software – V-Ray. Chaos Group was nominated and won a Scientific and Technical Academy Award for V-Ray in 2017.



The actor, who may be more familiar to us as Gicho from the film adaptation of “Heights” (“Vazvishenie”) or as Dr. Vasilev from the drama TV series “Stolen Life”, strongly believes in the power of education and the need for motivated teachers. That is why he will be donating his time to the highest bidder at the Inspiration Leaders Charity Auction.
