The award is a silver order. Volunteers called on people on social networks and they gave their silver jewellery - silverware, and even very valuable and exclusive things.

"Well-known Ukrainian boxer Viacheslav Uzelkov gave us his silver medal, we melted Cossack and hetman coins. It is possible that by selling them we could get more money, but that was the idea - that the award is smelt from the things that have a special energy and we hope that it will watch over people who receive it," co-organizer of the award, volunteer Oleh Yanytskyi said.
