Creating Christmas Cheer – even BIGGER and BETTER than Last Year
“Helping people who don’t normally put their hands up.”
That’s what the Rebuild Christchurch Foundation’s Project Christmas is all about and nominations open (tomorrow).
This is the second year the Foundation has run Project Christmas, which aims to help families struggling to provide a Christmas for their family. Last year the Foundation helped 76 families and the Foundation spokesman Deon Swiggs says this year the aim is to help many more.
“We are grateful for support once again from the Mainland Foundation, which together with the Sanitarium Marmite celebrity fundraising campaign “A Beautiful Struggle” www.abeautifulstruggle.co.nz we are confident this year will be much bigger,” says Swiggs. “We hope to be able to support up to 300 people or families, helping them to have a better Christmas than they would otherwise have had.”
The Rebuild Christchurch Foundation will be working alongside social agencies to ensure they are helping people and families who genuinely need and deserve support, but normally wouldn’t ask.
Nominations can be made on line on the Rebuild Christchurch website www.rebuildchristchurch.co.nz/project-christmas until Sunday December 16th, with deliveries of goodies to the successful nominees taking place the following week.
