Together we send parcels of joy.

We celebrate 2 x Christmas. Give some joy this Christmas with an online parcel - it's quick and easy. Or drop a parcel off at the post office with urgently needed foodstuffs and toiletries. We will be ready to receive your parcels again from 24th December 2019 to 11th january 2020. 2 x Christmas online parcels can be donated all year round.

Last year a mother came with her two children. She started to cry when she realized she wouldn't need to worry about what she could give them to eat at the end of the month.

Celebrities lend a hand

Every year a large number of celebrities come to help the 2 x Christmas campaign. In 2019, SRC ambassador Friedrun Burkhalter and more than 30 other celebrities lent the volunteers a hand sorting the donated goods.

Behind the scenes

From January to mid-February, hundreds of volunteers come to Wabern near Bern to unpack the donated parcels, sort the goods and prepare them for distribution to people living in poverty all over Switzerland. The online parcels are used to fund winter aid projects in eastern Europe.

The idea of sharing gift parcels with others has something fascinating about it. There is real pleasure in giving to others.

The aim is to give something back to society.

For more than 20 years, the 2 x Christmas campaign has been helping people in need.

Your donations help people in poverty in a tangible way:

  • Parcels containing foodstuffs and toiletries benefit people throughout Switzerland.
  • The donations from the online parcels will be used to buy foodstuffs and basic essentials for people in eastern Europe.

Pass on some of the Christmas joy and help others.
