Wish tree: Making children's eyes light up during the Christmas season

Since 2011, we have been organizing our wish tree campaign during the Christmas season. We collect wishes from charitable institutions that work with children, such as the Tafelhaus or the children's home on the Friedensberg, and hang them on Christmas trees in cooperation with Jena companies. The wishes can then be "picked" from the tree and fulfilled by employees and all interested people. Beautifully wrapped by the givers, we organize the handover of the gifts in the facilities.

You are a non-profit organization or a company and want to be part of it? The preparations for 2022 are completed, but please contact us for the coming year!

We are very pleased to be able to support the Bürgerstiftung Jena and its partners in the Wish Trees. This campaign has been particularly close to our hearts since 2018. Our employees will surely again quickly and diligently pick the wishes from the four trees at our site to make Christmas a little brighter for children in the region.
