IPA Brazil Christmas initiative in its second year

10 Jan 2019


BRchristmas1The IPA in Brazil brought 1,184 smiles to the faces of needy children in the country this Christmas with the social project ‘Christmas Letters’ – an initiative which is now in its second year.

This project collects Christmas presents requested by letters to Santa from children up to 14 years old and of low income families. The Christmas Letters initiative is run in partnership with the Correios do Brasil (Brazilian Post Office), which organises the delivery of the gifts to its recipients, such as to six-year-old Valentina Matos de Souza Silva, who wrote:

‘Santa Claus, for Christmas, I would like to receive a gift, because my mother told me that it is very difficult to make money this year, and that she would see if she could buy me a present the following year. Santa Claus, my mother is alone, and I do not have a father, but I have 4 brothers who study, and do not work. I behaved well and  have been polite this year, and I would really like a pram for my doll, so that I could put the doll I won last year from you into it. A kiss for Santa Claus.’
