As a volunteer, I'm working for a daycare and community center in a poor neighbourhood, just outside São Paulo.
For the 8th year in a row, we are organizing a Christmas party for the children of this day care center ánd for the children of an orphanage in Extrema, MG. In total we try to make a party for 150 children.
Which means that we raise money via donations (75 R$ or 30 Euros per child) to make an individual Christmas present for each child.
Every present consists of the following items:
* personal hygiene items
* a real (new!) present
* socks, underpants
Today we did the wrapping for the day care center, and here are the results:
That means a lot of happy faces!
