On March 15, Cara&Co company, which runs a set of renown concept stores in Moscow and Sydney, will open an exhibition dedicated to the Synergy of Art & Fashion Project, a charity auction supporting The Sound World Foundation. The exhibition will take place at the Westfield Sydney, a shopping center in the city's business district. The Sound World, born at the end of 2009, aims to give deaf children from low income families a chance to hear the world. The project has no national borders and is engaged in collecting money for the procurement of the hearing implant Cochlear and for the operation and subsequent rehabilitation of children.

Rosa Alpert, founder of The Sound World, stated, “Nobody takes this problem seriously, but there is an enormous number of children who need only to cross the bridge in order to plug into a normal life.” The Synergy of Art & Fashion Project hopes to attract the world's attention to the activities of The Sound World Charity Foundation and get support for the treatment of ten candidates.
