We recently caught up with the Metropolia Charity elves busy working hard on the Christmas Charity Event and they gave us more information about their plans for Monday 29.11 @09:00 -15:00. They really emphasised that they need everyone to fill in the ORDER FORM so they can know whether they should continue with some of the planned events such as the photo session or not? & How many chocolate Santas to buy.
Harriet Elf said that the team have worked hard to confirm that Joulupuu will be the Finnish charity partner for the event. Click to know more about the Co-operation and Joulupuu Information Finnish&English About Metropolia Charity & Joulupuu Cooperation
Jeanne Elf said the team have produced the following poster for the event.
Zoya Elf explained that the main idea is to bring a toy for a child so they can have a Christmas present. Zoya Elf explained that there is no limit on the cost of the present so it can be something inexpensive. She also explained that the other events are being organised so people can buy an item and the money will be gathered together to buy more presents.
Toys should preferably be wrapped and with a label but the Elves will also have labels available on the event day. The label should have the gender of the child/age and description on it.
