MARIGOT: Like every year, the members of the Leo Club SAFARI are undertaking to light up the Christmas of underprivileged children in Saint Martin by taking up the challenge this year with “a Wishing Tree”.
Christmas is a time to give, show and receive love. Knowing the disastrous consequences of the health crisis for the families affected, the Leo Club SAFARI intends to go further to offer a little love to the children of the families. The Leo Club SAFARI “Wishing Tree” project is a perfect way to show this during the holiday season.
A beautiful project!
This is a unique, fun and special way to make a difference and give back during the Christmas season! Three weeks before Christmas, the angels made by the youth of the club will represent a child or teenager who is a beneficiary of the project and will be hung on the big Christmas tree at the West Indies Mall.
The community is invited to visit the tree and choose an angel. The ages and gender of the child will be written on the angels which will then be hung on the Christmas tree at the West Indies Mall.
The sponsor (customer) will purchase a gift for that child or youth and donate it to the association. They can keep the angel as a gift to take home and hang on their Christmas tree. This will allow people to feel the impact that one act can have on another child.
The gifts collected will be distributed by Santa Claus and his assistants during the Solidarity Christmas Tree organized by the Leo Club SAFARI.
