The Christmas Season of Ruskovilla starts by getting our Christmas drive going and packing some presents that will hopefully bring a lot of joy and warmth to the children receiving them.
Every year Ruskovilla Switzerland is giving some of our products as a Christmas gift to people in need. This year we are doing this by joining the “Weihnachten im Schuhkarton” initiative, which delivers Christmas presents to poor children around the world. This year’s recipients are in Eastern European countries including Belarus, Lithuania, Latvia, Montenegro, Poland, North Macedonia, Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria, Slovakia and Croatia. I was amazed of the scale of this program. Last year they delivered over 10 million Christmas presents!
Ruskovilla’s packages include of course our products. This year we gave warm silk wool shirts and merino mittens to children of different ages. These are then packed together with some toys and Christmas cookies, to hopefully make a nice surprise and have something warm to wear this winter.
