How to be a Claus for a cause
2020 has been a challenging and tough year for all of us. We are going through this storm together. Yet some of us are navigating in a battleship, some others in a kayak.
Here's a handy guide on how to make a difference this Christmas from Maria Fernanda González...
Below you can find out more about supporting some of today's most important causes and playing a part in meeting the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
Some of these goals include...
Life on land
Step 1: Find a cause
Below you will find a couple of suggestions.
Vision Rescue - Reaching out with love
Vision Rescue's mission is to free children from all forms of exploitation by engaging and sustaining in education, which empowers them to change mindsets and make good life choices that promote intergenerational transformation. Vision Rescue achieves its mission by providing educational support and nutritious meals to children and empowering parents in slum communities with vocational skills for financial independence.
Nalam's mission is to help people in need in India and Africa, in particular by providing a safe and nurturing environment for female orphans, educating women in health care and disease care, combating poverty by supporting the education and training of children and adolescents.
Plant-for-the-Planet is a youth global movement with an ambitious goal: to fight the climate crisis by planting trees around the world.
Its vision is that climate justice ambassadors could plant one million trees in every country on earth and thereby offset CO2 emissions all on their own. Did you know that each tree binds a CO2 intake of 10 kg per year?
Step 2: Make a donation to the cause
Step 3: Write a note to your loved ones to let them know about your donation
Be creative. You can get inspiration from a postcard template here.
Step 4: Have a Merry Christmas!
