Companies, don't give out useless gifts this Christmas – do something life-saving instead!

A big appeal to all companies – the best Christmas gift is a donation that will give someone hope and extra days of life. 

An extraordinary number of people are turning to our foundation for help at the moment. Young and old, people in need all over Estonia – there are so many cancer patients whose treatment is not being compensated by the Estonian Health Insurance Fund and who have no choice but to rely on donations.
On average we are approached by one person every day. That is why we are appealing to all companies in the run-up to Christmas to forego gifting unnecessary things to employees, partners and customers. Instead, do a collective good deed to support cancer patients, giving someone hope and the chance to live.
We also encourage all work collectives, groups of friends and all kinds of organisations to forego, wherever possible, giving ‘obligatory’ gifts to one another, instead pooling your money and collectively giving the most valuable gift – giving someone hope and life via our foundation.
We have various ‘Christmas offers’ for companies wishing to do good in their team's name (and let their partners know they are doing so), based on the needs and preferences of your company. Ask for more information by e-mailing or calling the foundation's CEO Katrin Kuusemäe (+372 5592 2221) or board member Toivo Tänavsuu (+372 52 76 004).

ETV telethon to raise money for ‘The Gift of Life’

This year, Estonian Television’s annual holiday telethon Jõulutunnel (‘Christmas Tunnel’) will be lending a helping hand to cancer patients and joining forces with the cancer treatment foundation ‘The Gift of Life’. 

By the end of 2020, the foundation will have ‘supported’ the Estonian government with almost a million euros
This year, the foundation is running at a deficit of 150,000 euros - which is almost equal to how much the government has profited from us!
