“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas” in the EDE Group

Giving joy and making children smile – that’s the aim of Christmas, but it’s especially an annual heartfelt wish of the EDE “Wunschsternaktion” (Wishing Star campaign).

This year marked the 14th anniversary of the Christmas Wishing Star campaign at the EDE Group in Wuppertal, where many of the 225 wishes from children from regional children’s and youth homes were presented in a festive setting in the beautifully decorated EDE foyer.

Father Christmas himself visited EDE Group’s headquarter to hand over the lovingly wrapped presents to the excited children and give them a little happiness in the festive season. The gifts were collected thanks to the great commitment of many EDE employees and with the support of the EDE Group.

“Whether it’s a fulfilled wish or a monetary donation – every gift reaches the little ones and helps! This is the twelfth time I’ve organised the campaign myself and I’m still really happy every time that we can make the children so happy on behalf of our EDE colleagues,” says Jennifer Träptau, Sustainability responsible.

In addition to the presents, the “Christmas helpers” aka employees also treated the children with sweet snacks, while a professional make-up artist transformed the foyer into a winter wonderland with a make-up station, enchanting the children’s faces as winter fairies or reindeer.

A wonderful activity that put a smile on the faces of the children and the organisers. As always, a highlight at the end of the year. We are already looking forward to next year!

Ho Ho Ho!
