The holiday season is upon us and so is the annual hunt for gifts. While presents bring joy and happiness, some of them also come with a deep meaning. And here’s your opportunity to give a meaningful gift this year.
The Orphanage House Lipova and ExxonMobil are long-term partners. Employees of our company traditionally give Christmas presents to the children in the Orphanage so that their wishes can come true. And this year there is one special wish.
The Orphanage House Lipova would like to surprise their children with a stay in the mountains. The stay is intended for 30+ children, age 4+, and should include accommodation, food and activities in Czech mountains. For this, the Orphanage needs financing – 90.000 CZK to be exact.
The trip will be organized during spring holidays so that kids can enjoy it to the fullest.
If we manage to collect more, all money will be given to Orphanage Lipova (by NGO Dejme Detem Sanci based on a signed contract) and used for other trips.
For this purpose, ExxonMobil Czech Republic will also contribute by nice amount the Orphanage House Lipova.
If you want to join our company and also donate to the Orphanage, you can simply do so here.
Your voluntary contribution will help to create an unforgettable memory for the children of the Orphanage House Lipova. On the top you can deduct your contribution from tax on annual basis. Confirmation for tax purposes will be sent on January.
The children form the Orphanage House Lipova wrote letters explaining why they would like to get this particular Christmas gift – a stay in the mountains.
In a nutshell, the children would love to go to the mountains since there are only small hills and no real mountains in the orphanage area and they would like to learn how to ski. They would also love to breathe in some fresh air and enjoy the winter nature. Most of all, they all would like to spend the spring break together and experience something new in each other’s company.
In the children’s own words:
“…we really miss going somewhere together! If we could be frolicking in the snow, we would be happy!”
“…we would like to see what we have never seen before with our own eyes, that beautiful view as far as the eye can see, that we can only dream about for now…”
Some of the children also sent us pictures of the winter landscapes and skiers. Take a look.
