Christmas wish tree: Sports clothes or new sporting equipment will always make a child that is interested in sports happy!

Nearly all children growing up in family homes engage in exciting recreational sports. It would be sad if engaging in recreational activities were to remain only a dream for the reason that one’s football boots are too small and have become worn out, or one is missing athletics trousers or a riding helmet.

Children grow quickly and sporting equipment requires constant replacement. New footwear or other equipment is required at least once a year. The activities are all very different. There are those which can be enjoyed with a relatively modest budget, and there are those which require a slightly greater contribution. Santa can definitely be of help here.

To make sure that the item is not a one-time donation, take the time to consider becoming a permanent donor, since the gift of paying the monthly fee for training or transport costs is an invaluable gift, which gives the child a feeling of security, that they are able to continue with their favourite activity now and in the future.

Favourite training for boys – football, or course!

Thirteen-year-old Hans has been going to football practice since he was six. He is the most diehard football fan that one can be. Hans probably knows everything there is to know about his favourite player, Christiano Ronaldo. Unfortunately, Hans has a bit of a problem – his football boots have become way too small for him. Maybe Santa will bring Hans a new pair of football boots, with which he can once again comfortably run and play in during practice.

Sixteen-year-old Elari also has the same problem with his football boots. His current pair is old, worn out, and too small. It would be sad if he had to quit attending football practice, and Elari is hoping to find a new pair of football boots in Santa’s bag of gifts, with which he can once again run around the pitch. Elari is dedicated to football, having been involved since the age of eight. During that entire time it has never entered his mind to quit his favourite game.

Fifteen-year-old Martin, from Tartu, could also use some new football equipment. His wish is to receive a pair of shin pads and goalie gloves. Martin is a goalie and his current gloves are hopelessly worn out.

Seventeen-year-old Enn has already played through several pairs of goalie gloves during his career. His current gloves are pretty ragged in appearance. Enn’s interest in football has already lasted for years, and he also volunteers for a men’s football club during competitions. Regardless of the weather!

Stress reducing boxing

Boxing is a very good sport, one in which several children from family homes are involved. Boxing provides a fun physical challenge and allows one to release all of the stress that has built up during the day. After practice it is as if you have been reborn, says 19 year old Stepan, from Harju County. He has tried a number of different sports, but now he has found that boxing is best suited for him. He also likes to go running a lot. Stepan is hoping that Santa will bring him a gift card to a sports shop, which will help him to select the necessary equipment for his favourite hobby.

It doesn’t pay to think that only boys are involved with boxing. Eighteen-year-old Ilona also goes to boxing practice just as enthusiastically and needs equipment. She is hoping to find new boxing gloves in Santa’s bag.

Training outfits are always in demand

Seven-year-old Assar, from Jõgeva County, has spent half of his life, nearly three years, going to wrestling practice. He could use a sports bag to carry his training clothes.

Nine-year-old Jaana, who lives in Pärnu, is a very dedicated track and field enthusiast and trains three days a week. She is doing very well in her training. Jaana is always eager and motivated. Most of the time Jaana reaches the finish line first, which provides the girl with even more inspiration. As a result of such intense training, clothes tend to wear out, which is why Jaana is wishing for long running tights and long-sleeved training shirts from Santa.

Thirteen-year-old Kaia practices the exciting sport of taekwondo. She also goes to practice three times a week, and is the best in her group. This is why she is included in increasingly important competitions and sometimes it is quite difficult to cope with the stress of competition. Decent training equipment is also important when attending competitions. It should be of good enough quality that the small contestant shouldn’t even have to think about it! Kaia has asked Santa for a pair of taekwondo shin guards.

The best Christmas gift is one that brings joy and helps one to develop, providing a spark in the drive for discovery, challenging one’s knowledge, or teaching a new skill. The best gift we can give a child is if we take into consideration their wishes and understand the actual needs behind these wishes.

Sharing gifts on Christmas Eve is the highlight of the year for many children, but life goes on for 12 months of the year and dreams don’t end with Christmas. Why not give a gift to these children each month by becoming a permanent supporter of their hobbies? The support of a permanent donor is invaluable because children growing up in family homes want to take part in training and be engaged in hobbies all year round, just like the children who are growing up with their parents. As a permanent donor, you can give them a feeling of certainty, that they will be able to take part in their favourite activities now and in the future!

Contribute EUR 3 and you will give children the gift of the experience of success, new experiences or support young people in acquiring an education, which is of critical importance when starting an independent life. Provide your own small contribution to the children living in substitute homes so that they will have the same supportive and nurturing environment as the children being raised in your own family.
