Every year during the last ten years, Swedish Christmas Elves (Åkarhjälpen) has travelled to Lithuania with a bus full of Christmas gifts for Lithuanian children that are hospitalized in Kaunas and Vilnius due to cancer diseases. This initiative is a result of a beautiful, long-term friendship between independent businessmen, local communities, teachers pupils and their families in south of Sweden and the childhood cancer fund “Rugute”. Therefore, during Swedish Christmas Evening 2017 we have also chosen to participate in Swedish Christmas Elves initiative to support “Rugute” by organising a charity bazaar and a charity lottery.
During the evening, you will be able to support the fund by voluntary donation, in return for beautiful Christmas decorations, hand-made by the fund’s volunteers and supported families. Hopefully these symbolic toys will bring joy to your home and your families.
