Help Father Christmas make a child smile!

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.” ― Mother Teresa

As we are getting close to the festive season, UNICEF would like to embark your child on a magical experience and give all children in South Africa a good reason to smile.

This Christmas, we’d like to give YOUR child an opportunity to make a difference by helping Father Christmas.

How do we do this? It’s all very simple

You just need to follow the steps in the video message below, download and help your child complete the letter to Father Christmas where they can share some information and make a promise to change another child in need’s life in South Africa. 

The letter can be emailed to:

UNICEF works with supporters to do whatever it takes to provide a safer world for children.

UNICEF is the world’s leading children’s charity. We help more children than any other organisation. We keep them safe when a disaster strikes. And we provide life-saving food, clean water and vaccines.

Helping Father Christmas deliver an important virtual gift to a child, your child will learn about areas where children need us most.

After you have created the magical experience, there will be an option to add a voluntary donation to UNICEF’s vital work for children here >

You will also receive a thank you letter from Father Christmas to include in your child’s stocking.

The letter thanks your child for the gift they’ve chosen. It’s a magical reminder of the good they’ve done this Christmas

With much gratitude,
UNICEF South Africa
