Become St. Nicholas for a Child in Ukraine

Become St. Nicholas for a Child in Ukraine

The holidays are coming, and everyone is looking forward to the gifts 😍

However, we know for sure that gifts are nice not only to receive but also to give! That's why we invite you to join the St. Nicholas Reindeer initiative: collecting gifts for children affected by the war (from the de-occupied and near-to-the-frontline cities and villages) which they receive for the winter holidays (St. Nicholas Day, Christmas and New Year). This initiative was established in 2016 in Kharkiv to bring holiday spirit (and presents!) to the kids from near-frontline settlements. Unfortunately, for the last couple of years, the initiative's geography has expanded due to the full-scale invasion, so even more kids were displaced/affected by war. They write letters to the St. Nicholas Reindeers hoping for the miracle to happen, and you can give this miracle!

What can you bring?

Toys of all kinds: Lego sets, dolls, remote control cars, creative kits, puzzles etc. However, we must emphasize that all the toys must be new.
Sweets: advent calendars, chocolates, etc.
