Ten things to do

Holiday spirit by the end of November

Help St. Nick reach kids

These kids need a smile on St. Nicholas Day and here’s how you can help.

Help St. Nick reach kids

Companies and their employees can help make this holiday season a bit more special for children in difficult situations.

For the 18th year the American Women’s Club of Luxembourg is gathering donations to bring St. Nicolas Day presents to children living in about 60 shelters and group homes, says the club’s Christina Munnich.

The “Gifts for Kids” idea is straightforward: the children make a wish for a present listed in the Cactus toy catalogue. Companies donate a small patch of space at their workplace for a Christmas tree decorated with ornaments made by the AWCL. Each ornament contains one of the wishes (a tree at Amazon’s offices is pictured above).

Employees can voluntarily select an ornament and pay for the present, which costs between €5 and €25 each, via a donation to the AWCL fund. Cactus will wrap each present and club members will deliver the gifts to the kids on St. Nicolas Day.

The AWCL hopes “bring smiles to over 600 children in the Luxembourg area”.

The Christmas trees and ornaments started being delivered to workplaces this week. Donations be made up until Friday 28 November, and the gifts will be donated on Saturday 6 December.

Company representatives looking for more information or who would like to participate in this year or next year’s programme should contact Munnich at [email protected] or on +352 621 733 682.

AWCL also welcomes suggestions on children’s shelters and children’s homes to include in the 2015 campaign.
