Our main project


Our project 2023:

Our goal this year is to give away 350 gifts bags and receive 350 children's smiles in exchange!

Since 2009, we have supported more than 2300 asylum seeking children, from infrants to early teens, by offering a joyous Christmas party. There are lots of great fun at hand: lots of games and activities, a feast of course, and a gift bag from Father Christmas.

Christmas without gifts is not really Christmas. In addition to the party, we aim to give each child an individualized gift bag with age-related gifts, school items, and toiletries valued at CHF 60.

In an amazing, collaborative effort, volunteers of all ages help to make this a successful event.

  • Young preschool children prepare decorations and raise funds with craft activities and donated wrapping paper.  
  • Teenage volunteers prepare games to entertain the children during the party.
  • Photographers donate time and resources to capture the event.
  • A volunteer shopping team buys gifts that are in turn wrapped by another volunteer group.
  • And of course, many other volunteers and their families that donate time and endless energy to organise the party and host it.

We could not offer this party without the support of local businesses. 

Over the years we have gotten many businesses get involved through various efforts such as donating money, gift cards, toys, gadgets, food and drinks and also organizing fundraising campaigns and facilitating opportunities for staff to volunteer before and during the party. 

Most importantly, each year with the help of the Asyl Amt of Zug social services, we are able to invite and connect with the asylum seekers. Thanks to their incredible time and effort they dedicate to helping us, we are able to organize and offer the party. 

Please help us to bring a smile to the childrens's faces and consider a donation of CHF 60 to buy a gift for a child. We thank you for your generosity.

Our project 2022:

December 2022 - Ägerihalle, Unterägeri
 It was a magical party filled with lots of special treats, games and gifts from Santa. We had around 440 people in attendance.  Each child recived a CHF 60 gift bag. As a memory of the party, each child took home a photo of their visit with Santa. 
All of this would not have been possible without the support from all of you! Thank you!  

Our project 2021:

In 2021, more than 260 children enjoyed an outdoor celebration with Santa and his elves, dancing and taking pictures with Santa. Each child recived a CHF 60 gift bag.

Our project 2020:

In 2020, no party could take place due to the covid restrictions. Nevertheless, almost 200 children received per mail a gift card of CHF 50 value to spend on gifts, clothes and a festive meal.
