The traditional Christmas Eve plate doesn’t have to stay empty at all this year….
7 different stories – each seemingly with no way out, a lost cause. Behind each are thousands of people who, like our protagonists, have been brought to the ultimate brink of hunger, poverty, cruelty, rejection and a life without hope.
Huruma (5 months old), Grandma Antoinette (85 years old), Zoia (58 years old), Celine (25 years old), Marcel (85 years old), Rachi (18 years old), Dave (29 years old) – we met each personally in different parts of the world. We introduced them to you and, little by little, you began to balance out the great losses in each story. Today, thanks to you, we are restoring life in them, providing care, security, work, dignity and the chance to build their future.
Each of your gestures and open hearts is the essence of embracing a guest, without which there is no Christmas Eve. It is a plate waiting for a guest who is ‘different’. Today at the Good Factory, we dream of having a Christmas Eve Plate of Good on every table on this one day of the year. It is not only an invitation for our charges to take an empty place at the table, but also real help, tailored to their needs. It is about restoring our charges’ hopes, dreams and faith in one more Christmas.
