Lonely Christmas Tree
Lonely Christmas Tree Seeking Presents
Helping the children who need it the most
It’s the most wonderful time of the year and at Amerikalinjen we are spreading the Christmas cheer. Help us make this season a magical one for children in need by collecting gifts to our Lonely Christmas Tree Project!
Christmas is a wonderful time of traditions, both new and old. For many children, however, this is not always a season of joy. That’s why we have a yearly tradition at Amerikalinjen—we call it Lonely Christmas Tree Seeking Presents. Every year in December, we invite you to donate a Christmas gift to the children who need it the most, by placing it under the Christmas tree in our lobby.
Here’s how to participate
Buy or donate a Christmas present. Just make sure it’s in good condition and preferably something you think a child would really want and need. This could even include an experience! A cinema ticket can be an amazing gift for children of all ages.
No need to wrap your gift. Just write a note detailing the approximate age and interests of your intended recipient. For example: “Merry Christmas from Johanna! This gift is ideal for someone aged 3-5 years who loves playing outside.”
Place your gift under our tree. Stop by our lobby between December 1–16 and leave your much appreciated gift under our Christmas tree. Done!
Where do the gifts go?
All received Christmas gifts at our hotel are donated to The Salvation Army.
About the project
The Lonely Christmas Tree Project is part of a bigger initiative at Nordic Hotels & Resorts. Together with Giving Tuesday, a day that encourages people to do good, we want to take the opportunity to give back to our communities. Since 2012, Nordic Hotels & Resorts together with Nordic Choice Hotels have collected over 446,370 gifts in the Lonely Christmas Tree Project. For this, we are forever thankful.
