Everyone is welcome to donate a present in the Joulupuu campaign

Joulupuu is a traditional Christmas campaign collecting presents to children and youth at risk of social exclusion in Finland. You can participate in the campaign by bringing a wrapped Christmas present to a local Joulupuu collection in your area or by making a donation on

List of local collections (in Finnish) can be found here.

All donated presents will be delivered to a toddler, child or youngster who might not receive any presents this Christmas without the Joulupuu campaign. There are tens of thousands of children under child welfare services in Finland, and over 10 000 in the Helsinki region alone. 

What kind of presents can I donate?

You can donate new, unbroken and clean items that are wrapped, ready to be donated and accompanied with a card stating what is found inside. The recommended value for one present should not exceed 80 euros. Popular presents among children and youngsters include board games, craft or sports equipment, movie tickets and gift cards to an event, experience or store. In addition to new products you can also donate something handmade (e.g. clothes, art). Make sure to attach a card telling whom the present is suitable for (child/youngster/boy/girl), the age of the receiver and what is found inside the package.

The campaign has been organized by volunteers every year since 2000.

The campaign is run by volunteers with a 100% not-for-profit model. The organizing party, Joulupuu Association, is a registered non-profit organization collecting no profit from its operations. All donations are directed to helping children and youth in risk of social exclusion. The presents are delivered to children directly with reliable partners in public social services.
