We will give 200 children in Amsterdam Zuid-Oost a present for Sinterklaas. If we don't give these children a present they wouldn't get one at all. We are closely working together with a foundation thats called Bread For Life founded by Regina Mac-Nack. Every week they give away hundreds of food packages to people, who can't afford to buy their own food. With Regina's help we will give 200 kids a present, so that they can celebrate Sinterklaas just like the other children.
We approached some companies to donate presents and we will raise money to buy presents and wrapping paper.
In the Netherlands a lot of people live below the poverty line. These people can't give their children presents during the holiday season, for example on Sinterklaas, a Dutch holiday. These Dutch children believe that Sinterklaas gives presents to everybody, who has been good. So the children may believe that they have been naughty or not nice as an explanation for not getting presents. We think this is very sad and that every child in the Netherlands deserves to get at least one present on Sinterklaas.
