All children, without exception, are waiting for New Year's miracles. And adults do their best to please their children with gifts and surprises. But Christmas time is a great excuse to do good deeds. Children from orphanages are waiting for the holiday no less than home. And you can become Santa Claus for at least one child.
The tradition of congratulating orphans on the New Year and Christmas dates back to the times of Tsarist Russia. And how good it is that these traditions have not lost their relevance. If you are determined to wish the children without parents a Happy New Year, start preparing from October.
An ideal option for private philanthropists would be to apply to foundations that have the practice of New Year's greetings. Nowadays, a widespread form of assistance is when employees of firms and organizations buy gifts for children centrally or at the request of children. At the end of October, employees of charitable foundations collect letters to Santa Claus from sponsored orphanages. This means that at the beginning of the month your company must submit an application to the fund that you are ready to take part in the action. Foundation employees bring letters and photographs of children to your organization. Moreover, some foundations carry out real PR actions, decorating Christmas trees and hanging letters right on them. Employees of the company take a letter from the child they like and by the specified time buy a gift, pack it and give it to a trusted person. On the day of congratulating children, together with the volunteers, you can go to the orphanage and attend the presentation of gifts.
What you need to pay attention to. Ask who else will congratulate these children. Cases when children have 2-3 matinees a day from different companies are not uncommon, especially in Moscow and the region. In this case, look for another orphanage. Otherwise, it turns out that somewhere there is an overabundance of gifts (which is not the best option for the children themselves), but someone receives sweet gifts from the city administration and that's it. Children's wishes for the New Year shouldn't be too expensive. Ideally, the planned gift should not cost more than 1000-2000 rubles. Read all of the letters from volunteers before taking them. Discuss controversial points about what can be bought in return for what the child asks. If you are confused by the number of expensive requests (phones, gadgets, etc.), refuse such letters. Such requests may indicate that the children are doing well with the provision of material benefits. And expensive gifts in orphanages are simply not needed for many reasons.
If the employees of your organization are not ready for personal congratulations to children, but there is a desire to help, you can simply organize a holiday - pay for the animators, set a sweet table. In this case, it is better to team up with a company that buys gifts and make the holiday one day. First, the fun, and then the presentation of gifts and a photo session with Santa Claus.
