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 before 19 December!

Update: Together we have made it! We collected over 1600 gifts and were therefore able to distribute them to additional centers as well as those in need in Zurich. Many thanks for this! Subscribe to our newsletter and get updates on our collection campaign.

3. DROP OFF YOUR GIFT UNTIL 19 DEC

Drop your gift off at one of our partners until 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.

Together we have collected more than 1000 Christmas gifts:

2. WRITE A CHRISTMAS CARD

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

  4. one of the following items:

...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!

TOGETHER, WE'LL MAKE ZÜRI SCHENKT 2020 A SUCCESS!
