Laughing, joy and happiness

Also in 2012 thousands of children all over the world will rejoice in their gift from the heart

Like every year around that time, preparations are in full swing for humedica’s "Gift from the heart" campaign. Soon, the time will come again when thousands of children worldwide will hold their own Christmas parcel in their hands.

In which country and to which child will my ‘gift from the heart’ go this time?” This question will be asked again by our many parcel packers who lovingly decorate shoe boxes with coloured wrapping paper and fill them with lots of sweet, cuddly, funny and practical items.

More than 81.000 parcels were handed over to children by humedica during the "A gift from the heart" campaign in 2011. As always, with the help our parcel packers, we expect this number to keep growing in 2012.

A gift from the heart is only possible thanks to the many voluntary helpers who, year after year, give humedica active support in the organizational and logistic challenges posed by the campaign. We at humedica are profoundly grateful for the inestimable help provided by our volunteers.

Current information about the progress of the campaign can be found on the website: There you can also find a list of all addresses where the parcels are collected. Theoretically, the campaign is limited to participants from Bavaria, but in fact, gifts from the heart can also be packed by people living elsewhere.

An alternative way of participating is to make a donation of 10 Euros with which our voluntary helpers in the humedica headquarters will pack your gift from the heart. Please transfer your donation to the account 47 47 of the Sparkasse Kaufbeuren (Bank code 734 500 00), SWIFT-Code: BYLA DE M1 KFB and IBAN: DE35734500000000004747 and please quote the reference: “Geschenk mit Herz”. You are also welcome to use our online donation form.

We wish you much joy and blessing for packing your parcels and look forward to handing out numerous colourful and lovingly decorated Christmas gifts.

Of course we will keep you up-to-date using all our channels of information. Please also note the radio and TV programme of our media partner Bayerischer Rundfunk who is going to support the campaign again this year.

Thank you so much for your faithful support on behalf of thousands of children, many voluntary helpers and our team at the humedica headquarters.
