Stichting Rocking Up X-Mas
About Stichting Rocking Up X-MasEvery year around Christmas, Rocking Up X-mas ensures that many families are surprised with a luxurious Christmas package. These families are going through a difficult period and are often dependent on the food bank. We want to let them know that they are not alone and let them forget their worries for a while so they can celebrate Christmas the way it's meant to be.
The Christmas package contains ingredients and a recipe to make a luxurious 3-course meal. We supplement this with sponsored extras such as a local outing, toys and other things that are not self-evident for these families.
The packages are delivered by volunteers with the message that this is from an anonymous giver who wishes them a Merry Christmas and hopes that the recipient will one day have the opportunity to do the same for someone else. How this is received is different every time, but often the impact on the givers is at least as great as on the recipients. In this way we also try to inspire the donors to look at someone else more often.
