Christmas is a celebration for family. However, many children are denied the pleasures of the Christmas season due to a lack of financial resources. To give homeless children, orphans and underprivileged children in Bangkok a Christmas surprise, the CFF initiated an "Angel for a Day" campaign in cooperation with the Baan Nokkamin Foundation.
The star of the ceremony was the CFF mascot Lyco, who sang and danced with the children - a special highlight for the children as they had never seen a mascot before. With great enthusiasm, they then took the opportunity to paint and do handicraft work. They proudly presented their pictures to their beloved caretakers, and even gave some them of their works of art as gifts. After that, they played a game in which they had to identify and look for certain animals on pictures. After everyone had received a small gift, the children, caretakers and helpers ended this exciting day by sharing a delicious meal.
On behalf of all the children, we would like to thank the Lyoness Community, as well as Lyoness Siam and all volunteers who contributed to the success of this "Angel for a Day" initiative.
A special thank you goes out to:
The aim of the project was to give homeless children, orphans and underprivileged children, who are supervised by the Baan Nokkamin Foundation in Bangkok, some variety in their day-to-day life life during the Christmas season. The children were involved in a wide variety of fun activities, which gave them a sense of community. At the end of the day, the children received small gifts and everyone sat and had a meal together.
