The origins of word charity derives from caritas, which translates into merciful love. Jitka Klett isn’t negligible to its quiet presence in our society and she herself actively participates in charitable causes.
Apart from her generous donations at many events, she creates her own charitable projects in fashion industry and aims to help with its most urging matters. Because we rise by lifting the others and even the smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.
