I started to get involved in helping the needy in Mexico when we lived there, the movement was called Christmas Angels.
Before Christmas we would collect donations, buy as much as we could afford and take it to the less for fortunate.
In 2009 l moved back to Hungary and continued with the tradition.
I offered to buy Christmas presents to 3 children in a help group on FB, all the sudden about 40 children’s parents contacted me.
I asked the parents to have the children write letters to the Christmas Angels and l started sharing the letters on my FB page asking for friends and acquaintances to help (many children asked for food, that was also provided)
It was a success, all the children received Christmas presents wrapped and with the toy inside they wished for...
I have done it every year since.
I believe that no child should spend Christmas hungry or not receiving a present.
Last year in 2017 l helped over a 100 children with the help of friends and for years now with help
of strangers that heard about my initiative.
Not everyone has time to shop for toys, wrap and mail, so l have volunteers that do that (because that’s their way of helping).
