A CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR EVERY REFUGEE IN ZURICH

DEAR CITIZEN OF ZURICH

Currently, 1000 people live in Zurich's asylum centers who were forced to leave their homes due to war, terror and persecution - in search of a better life for themselves and their families. Often living alone, in a confined space, in a country foreign to them, the Corona crisis has hit them particularly hard.

 

Christmas gives us the chance to invite each of the 1000 refugees with a gift and a welcoming message to participate in our holiday traditions and be part of our community. Give a gift or make a donation now before 19 December!

3. DROP OFF YOUR GIFT UNTIL 19.12. OR SEND IT BY MAIL

Drop your gift off at one of our partners until 19 December:

or send it by mail (arrival before 19 December):

HOW YOU CAN GIVE A GIFT

1. WRAP THESE 3-4 ITEMS AS A GIFT

Get the 3-4 listed items for men, women or children and wrap them as one gift in the corresponding color. Together with the operator of the asylum centers AOZ we suggest the following gifts which are especially helpful in winter for the residents of the shelters. We kindly ask you to include all the items listed in new or as-new condition to avoid differences in packages received. If you want to donate larger quantities of new or as-new items, please contact us.

Currently, we are still missing the following gifts:

2. WRITE A CHRISTMAS CARD

Write a Christmas card with welcoming words (German or English) and attach it to the gift.

250 green packages

  4. one of the following items:

  • Coloring pencils & coloring book

  • Ball (football or smaller ball)

  • Handicraft items (no scissors)

 

...OR DONATE!

The current situation makes it difficult to get and drop off a gift. That's why you can donate the value of a gift this year. We will then get the items for you, wrap them and attach your message (in the "Remarks" field). Every Swiss franc helps!
