Joulupuu-lahjakeräys / gift project 2016

Joulupuu project is Now completed! All the presents were taken to Social services of Vantaa. By the list then organized to be taken to the families. Thank you 

————————————————————————————————–

This will be the sixth year running that we’re taking part to this important national Christmas tree charity campaign.

The campaign takes place 19.11- 5.12.2016 in cooperation with the City of Vantaa, Junior Chamber International Finland, POINT library, YES daycare and ISV. We are also challanging all the other assocciations, clubs and families to take part!

The aim of the campaign is to collect Christmas presents for children in need, for children who would not otherwise get any presents. The presents are collected in the classes and brought under the Christmas tree donated by VAKKA. On Dec 11th, the gifts will be handed to the representatives of the City of Vantaa who will make sure that Santa delivers the gifts to the children who really needs them.

We ask you to participate in this campaign by donating a gift. The value of the gift is unlimited, but we recommend a 10-15 euro gift. The gift must be new, but can be self made. Please wrap your gift and deliver it to school with the students. The gift must contain a little label stating the contents, age and sex of the child.

This year also POINT library is joining this important campaign. You can bring the gifts also to the library 19.11-5.12. If you cannot come up with a gift idea, there is a little tree with the labels on it…please, do go and pick one ;)

Christmas tree will bring joy and cheerful moments to children and their families! Thank You!

Joulupuu projekti on hyväntekeväisyyskeräys, jonka tavoitteena on antaa joululahja niille lapsille, jotka muuten jäisivät ilman Joulupukin tuomisia. Joulupuu-keräys järjestetään ympäri Suomea paikallisten Nuorkauppakamarien toimesta yhdesä paikallisten yhdistyksien kanssa.

Miten voin tuoda oman muistiaiseni lapsille:
1. Nouda keräyspisteeltä pakettikortti, joka kertoo lahjansaajan iän ja sukupuolen (esim. poika 13v tai tyttö 3v) tai kirjoita itse pakettiin irroitettava lahjakortti näillä tiedoilla.
2. Hanki lahja joka voi olla uusi tai itse tehtykäyttämätön lahja.
3. Tuo paketti keräyspisteeseen jotka Kartanonkoskella on:
19.11- 5.12.2016 POINT kirjasto ja ISV koulu.
