December is a magical month, a time of holidays and giving, the time we all look forward to but none more than children who year after year write their wishes to Saint Nicholas, Santa Claus or Father Christmas. Sadly, in our region there is an increasing number of children who are disappointed in their expectations and their parents are even more miserable as these holidays bring a lot of pain and a sad reminder of everything they cannot give their children.
To help those parents and to bring joy to children, this year the Slovenian Business Club, in cooperation with the Red Ball Foundation, connected with the Centre for Social Work Ljubljana Šiška. Over two events the institution was able to give presents to 287 children from socially disadvantaged families.
On Friday, December 18th 2015, and Tuesday, December 22nd 2015, children were overjoyed by the arrival of Father Christmas who, with extensive help from entrepreneurs who are members of the Club, brought smiles to the children’s faces and their visibly surprised parents.
We are happy to be able to bring gifts for others because the best gift anyone can receive is to make someone else happy. We managed to do that by providing carefully selected gifts for these children. It is all for the purpose of experiencing joy and happiness at this wonderful time because each and every one of us deserves a bit of holiday magic, especially those who would otherwise be deprived of it.
