ABOUT THE VOLUNTEERING ACTIVITY
Sinterklaas and his bonte Pieten will soon arrive in our lovely canal city to surprise our tiny Amsterdammers! However, for many children in Amsterdam a Sinterklaas surprise is not taken for granted as they are living in poverty.
Do you think, like us at Serve The City, that Sinterklaas should be there for every kid in Amsterdam? Then join our surprise action and become Sinterklaas for a child in need! All together, we will fill the shoes of little Amsterdammers with a small gift to make them smile.
All over Amsterdam – you can indicate your preferred neighbourhood in the form below and we will connect you to a suitable shelter/location.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
- Sign-up below
- In November, you will receive an e-mail from us with all important information about the child/children you will be surprising (e.g. gender, age, gift ideas) and the delivery days and time
- As soon as you received our e-mail, you can start buying
- We recommend to buy a gift for around €10,00 per child
- Wrap them nicely and write a personal note or poem for every child
- Deliver the gift(s) at a location assigned to you before the date mentioned in the e-mail
- In case you don’t have time to deliver the gift(s) personally, you can order it/them online and send it/them to the location straight away
