The Christmas post to the elderly campaign has ended.

113 municipalities participated to ”Christmas Post to the Elderly” campaign. A warm thank you to all participants and municipalities!

It has never been this easy to share your good Christmas spirit: Let’s send Christmas post together to the elderly!

The society of creative caring, Siskot ja Simot, is arranging the “Christmas Post to the Elderly” campaign for the ninth time during the period between 8.11. – 7.12.2021. The aim is to collect Christmas cards for the elderly clients of home care and housing services.

We invite everyone to join the campaign to enable as many elderly as possible to receive a warm Christmas greeting this year.

Join us and share joy to the elderly!

The patron of the campaign is President Sauli Niinistö.

    For example: Merry Christmas!/Hyvää Joulua From Siskot ja Simot and me (your name).
