Learn more about this great community initiative organized by Secours Populaire for the festive season!
For more than 40 years Secours Populaire Français (SPF) has run its festive Green Santa campaign all over France to help give children, families and isolated elderly people a happy Christmas. These Santas work solidly to bring festive cheer from 4 to 31 December.
As part of the campaign, presents and new toys are distributed to adults and children who are supported by SPF volunteers throughout the year. This equates to almost 1,500 families and more than 2,700 children aged 0 to 10.
This year the mass present distribution will take place from 18 to 22 December with a special New Year’s Eve community event on 31 December in the SPF building.

Oxybul stepped forward to help collect new toys and products for magic shows, make-up sessions and other hands-on activities. Around a hundred toys (prototypes and samples) were donated to the charity. The brand makes donations like this several times a year to different charities.
On a larger scale, all the ÏDKIDS community brands support Dons Solidaires through the ÏDKIDS foundation. This pioneering charity redistributes donated clothing and toys to 250 other charities to help disadvantaged families. Because giving is all about being responsible, supporting the community and producing sustainably. In 2016 product donations from the ÏDKIDS community were worth 1,540,700 euros.
