Competition for The Best 9th Edition Slogan won Ms Barbara Michalec
.As Andrzej Jakimowski Polish director of such films as “Squint Your Eyes”, “Tricks” once said –
“A film can only be made about people, and if you make a film about them, you can not make it ignoring the bonds that connect them. Sometimes there are bonds of love, sometimes friendship. It can also be a relation: student – master. Things go both ways, otherwise, you just can’t do it. “
The Humanites Institute, as the initiator and organizer of “Two Hours for family” campaign, fully agrees with this thesis. Movies give many opportunities to build and cultivate intergenerational bonds. Thus, they perfectly fit into the assumptions of this #2h4family Global Social Movement.
We believe that movies, trips to the cinema, or recording family scenes together can be a great opportunity to see your loved ones in a new light and understand them better. Mindfulness, interest, conversation and proverbial doing something together are needed to build a lasting relationship.
The Humanites Foundation would like to invite everyone to join the 9th edition of the social campaign for strong family relations called the Two Hours For Family. In 2012 our campaign initiated the Polish celebrations of the International Day of Families in Poland.
8th Edition of the Social Campaign
TWO HOURS FOR FAMILY
with the main theme
FAMILY MOVIE CLUB
15th May – the International Day of Families – is a perfect opportunity to stop for a while and think what is important to us. Nowadays when the pressure and fast pace of living dictate the conditions, such a moment for reflection may be particularly important. Let us, therefore, ask ourselves a few questions: When was the last time I found out something new about my family and friends? When was the last time we spend some time together simply enjoying each other’s presence? The idea of strengthening the relationship with our nearest and dearest is the key purpose of the Two Hours For Family campaign. We believe that curiosity, mindfulness and good conversations create beautiful, real bonds and that the indispensable element of that puzzle is time. We would like to encourage you to support your employees in building the relationships with their families and give them the symbolic two hours, which they will be able to devote to some magical moments with their families. The main theme of this year’s campaign is “FAMILY MOVIE CLUB”.
Most families spend their days dealing with deadlines, tasks, errands, and other activities. Whether these are a result of work, school, extracurricular activities, or household duties, they often bring stress to our daily lives. By breaking away from daily routine you can get relief from the continuous stress and that could be good not only for your health but as a matter of fact for your whole family. Movies, trips to the cinema, or recording family scenes together can be generally a great way to get closer as a family.
CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION
There is no charge for participation in the Campaign. In order to take part, you should:
Daily communication is often based on the exchange of current events, often it does not take into account the name of the deepest feelings and desires. We do not have time to remember and dream together, and often not only time but also context for the conversation, especially when we feel that we are moving away from each other. For example, when to ask an adolescent about dreams when it is already alive in another world? How to ask, to get an answer?
ASK ME game is an opportunity to touch these topics in an original and cheerful way, because … after all, the game is just a game, but is it really only?
We know that your participation in the Two Hours for Family Campain is an expression of broad view of employees and appreciation of their social and family role, not just professional. On the occasion of the International Day of Families, you can give them not only 2 hours, but also this game to inspire and support them in building relationships with loved ones.
We invite all employers to purchase the ASK ME game for their employees on special terms – 5 EURO (net)

More about the ASK ME game:
The game contains two types of cards: questions and tasks.
The questions make us discover again, we open ourselves, we approach each other. Questions inspire and stimulate. In this game, curiosity dictates the conditions. What inspires my husband? What does my wife feel? What is my son passion? What does the world look like through my daughter’s eyes? What does mom dream about? What does grandpa want in his life? What does grandma miss? What does dad mention from his youth?
Tasks are an invitation to play together, where we experience cooperation and joy, build family relationships, share experience and collect new memories.
ASK ME is a game that relates to the relationship in the family, as well as the personality of each player. It is a game that opens emotionally and focuses on what is good and beautiful. The time we spend to discover how diverse and interesting our family is, will pay off for us to strengthen our relationship and sense of belonging.
Time is one of the most valuable resources, we are constantly missing it, somewhere we are in a hurry, and the most important things are often put off for later, which never comes. We have many roles, duties, interests and other commitments. What to choose? There is no patent to increase the amount of time for the family, but we can take care of its quality.
When making a choice, how we spend time with our loved ones, let us remember that these moments will become a part of one’s memories.
Four-year-olds, teenagers, parents, grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles. Just for the whole family.
To create an atmosphere of closeness, deepen communication and relationship with family, find common interests, talk about dreams, needs, memories. And all this to make us feel loved.
By purchasing ASK Me cards, you support the idea of the Two Hours for Family. Revenues obtained from sales support the activities of the Humanites Foundation (humanites.pl).
