Sint for every1!
On Saturday, November 5th, we have wrapping as much presents as possible with seven enthusiastic Rotaractors for the foundation Sint voor ieder1. For many children, celebrating Sinterklaas is a given. This is unfortunately not the case for all children in the Netherlands. The goal of the foundation Sint voor ieder1 goalis to give as many children as possible in difficult circumstances a gift, because every child deserves a gift on December 5th!
After a cup of coffee and a brief explanation we started packing gifts for children of 10-11 years old. Because there were several tables where gifts were being wrapped, every table was of course keen to wrap the most gifts. Different methodologies to pack were tried! Eventually we were able to pack around 300 gifts, to surprise the same number of children on December 5th. We had a fun and productive day and hope next year to contribute again. Below is some general information about the foundation and are some photos of the day.
Sintvoorieder1 Foundation aims to provide as many children aged 0 to 18 years with a Sinterklaas gift worth about 10 euros. The gifts are meant for children for whom a gift from Sinterklaas is not obvious. Often these children are dependent on food banks, (emergency) shelter (such as stay homes, open shelters and assisted living).
