About the Project

This campaign started on This campaign finished on

In December 2015, we decided to mix things up a bit with a one-of-a-kind Christmas campaign. With Santas Wanted!, our goal was twofold: support local businesses, and give sweet gifts to children in need.

We partnered with five awesome local companies that provided us with made-in-Armenia gifts, and we got in touch with Children of Armenia Fund (COAF) to identify the children that could really use a little extra help during the holiday season.

  • You donated 13,850 USD, allowing us to purchase 373 gifts.

  • 83 books from Zangak Publishing House

  • 82 honey jars from Honey.am

  • 79 pairs of winter boots from AVA shoes

  • 54 pairs of tennis shoes from AVA shoes

  • 49 hand knitted scarves, hats and socks from Homeland Development Initiative Fund

  • 26 tablets from ArmTab

On February 9th, our team put their Santa hats on and paid a visit to 8 schools in Lori to distribute gifts. Read about it on our blog.
