Cozy slippers, XL size sweater, sweet snacks for Christmas eve, washing powder, a book, warm blanket, teapot, chocolate bar, gloves, winter boots, food for up-coming festivities. These are the Christmas wishes of seniors that live in poverty and loneliness. At first glance these wishes seem humble but most of seniors can`t afford them. It could really brighten up their hard lifes.
Vilnius Rotaract club is organising event called „More than 100 Smiles“ since 2007. Thanks to this Project, club is able to grant the wishes of more than 100 seniors yearly. Vilnius Rotaract club together with its friends and partners is organising this event for 11 years in a row. Every Year before Christmas, our cared for seniors receive a simple question – „What is Your dream this year?“.
We fulfill around 100 seniors dreams every year who live in Vilnius. Various items and basic commodities are given as a charity which reaches around 5 000 € every year.
What goes into each seniors wish package? It is basic commodities: honey, vitamins, a little bit of sweets and a Christmas presents. Each Year, more and more kind people contribute to this project. Its purpose is to give enormous amount of smiles to those who can`t receive it from their beloved ones anymore. You can follow our seniors‘ wishes on Facebook – „100 šypsenų daugiau“.
