Local events & initiatives that you can support this Christmas!
Support local this Christmas!
Christmas is a time of joy, a time for celebrations with those closest to us, a time for love, cheer, and making memories that will last a lifetime. Christmas is also a time for giving, with it being a great time for companies to support local organisations and find ways to give back. Through CSR programmes, supporting families in need, contributing to one of the Christmas initiatives or purchasing gifts that giveback and support organisations, there’s a lot that can be done. We’ve put together some ideas and initiatives from Voluntary Organisations that could be done through your CSR team; have a look below and see which initiative/s you’d like to support this Christmas!
- Children’s Dreams – An opportunity to make a child in need’s Christmas magical!
Children’s Dreams is a project with the sole mission of making the Christmas wishes come true for the children identified by Foundation for Social Welfare Services (FSWS), which come from families facing social and financial difficulty, and also children being raised in Children's Homes.
HOW CAN YOU HELP? Browse through the dreams and choose the one you would like to fulfil.
LovinMalta is returning with its sixth edition of its #LovingMiliedChallenge whereby they will be working with local foundations, homes, and NGOs to collect and distribute gift boxes to vulnerable individuals and animals in different categories this Christmas.
