Donations to the Good Holiday Spirit collection will be used to provide low-income families with food vouchers to buy food for their Christmas dinner.
The Good Holiday Spirit food vouchers are worth €70 and will be offered to families with children living in Finland. The vouchers will be given to families in a challenging situation due to e.g. unemployment, illness, excessive debt, low income or some other crisis situation.
The local associations and branches of the Finnish Red Cross and the Mannerheim League for Child Welfare work together with local maternity and child health clinics, social services or parishes to find the families in need of help. A Good Holiday Spirit voucher cannot be applied for. See who is eligible for a food voucher.
Collection goal of €1,540,000
The Good Holiday Spirit collection will be organised for the 27th time in 2023. You can donate to the collection throughout the year. This year, the collection goal is €1,540,000, which will be used to provide food vouchers to 22,000 families.
Over the years, our collections have supported hundreds of thousands of families. The collections have also brought the issue of poverty in families into the public debate and to the attention of decision-makers.
The collection is organised by the Finnish Red Cross and the Mannerheim League for Child Welfare in cooperation with Yle.
