Help Lindt fundraise for the NSPCC this Christmas

Lindt is helping 25,000 children this Christmas

To make Christmas magical for even more children, Lindt is partnering with the NSPCC's Letter From Santa campaign and pledges to donate £100,000 to the charity this Christmas. In the seasonal spirit of giving, and with your support, Lindt hopes to make Christmas 2017 a little more magical for thousands more children across the UK.

For every special edition Lindt Teddy 200g Green Jumper product that is purchased online or through Lindt stores, Lindt will donate £2 to support the NSPCC* whilst supporting its Letter From Santa program.

Christmas is a special time for most children, full of fun, gifts and quality time with their family. However, this is not the case for all children across the UK. The NSPCC helps thousands of children throughout the festive season which, for them, remains a time of difficulty and loneliness. That is why services like Childline are important. The NSPCC's trained counsellors are there to support young people with any issue they're going through, no matter how big or small.

It costs £4 to answer a call to Childline. Donations from Lindt in 2016 helped the NSPCC answer 25,000 calls from vulnerable children.

The Letter From Santa Campaign

For many children and their families, receiving a letter from Santa is one of the most special traditions of Christmas. The NSPCC's Letter From Santa campaign has been enchanting children for seven years and allows families for a small suggested donation, to request a beautifully illustrated and personalised letter to be sent to their child from Santa.

In 2016 over 220,000 children received a festive letter personalised for them. The donations raised help the NSPCC to continue to change children's lives and fight for every childhood.

From the NSPCC

Abuse ruins childhood, but it can be prevented. That's why we're here. That's what drives all our work, and that's why - as long as there is abuse - we will fight for every childhood. We help children rebuild their lives, and we find ways to prevent abuse from ruining any more.

So when a child needs a helping hand, we'll be there. When parents are finding it tough, we'll help. When laws need to change, or governments need to do more, we won't give up until things improve.

Abuse changes childhood. But so can we.

"I phoned Childline a few weeks ago because I was being bullied. The counsellor I spoke to suggested that I involved a teacher. I am phoning to say I did this and now things are great. Lots of people in my class defended me against the bully when he started on me yesterday, so I want to thank Childline for changing my life"
