Hurrah! We've hit our initial goal of $900 in less than 48 hours thanks to all of you! This is giving us the opportunity to share holiday hampers and the mischievous spirit of the Elf on a Shelf with families in need this holiday season.

We are inspired to do more. So we have stretched our goal to $1,200. That will be 40 families that we will share the holiday spirit of warmth and good cheer with.

We are sure that this campaign will find more willing donors to help the Belgrade Foreigners and Visitors Rotary Club to lift the spirits of those in need in our community around us.

More Info

We are the Belgrade Foreigners and Visitors Rotary Club, a group of English speaking expatriates from all over the world who come together in service our community and to one another.  We are based in Belgrade, Serbia.

This holiday season, we have started to sell homemade Elf on A Shelf as a way of sharing the tradition with the many different cultures that are gathered together through our friends and family networks.  The proceeds of the sale of the Elf on a Shelf go towards our Rotary community service project for the year.

But we realized that we could do more...and so building off the Elf and the idea of introducing a new holiday tradition to families in Serbia, we decided to put together Holiday Hampers of essential food, holiday sweets and an Elf or two for the kids in needy families in and around Belgrade.

Because the holiday season in Serbia follows the old calendar, we will be delivering these hampers to families in need between New Year's and the Orthodox Christmas (January 7).

If we hit our goal, we will keep using the extra raised funds to reach more families.

Update #1

Thank you to everyone for the swift response to our campaign appeal. With funds raised for providing holiday hampers to 27 families already, we are hopeful that in the coming days we will surpass our original goal and stretch it to raised enough funds to provide hampers for even more families.

Thanks so much for your support and generous donations. We encourage you to share this campaign with your friends and networks on social media to help us to do more to help families in need at the holidays.
