Thousands of people from all around the world joined our Big Family Christmas, making this year’s celebrations our biggest and best ever!

Thanks to your generosity, a record-breaking number of places were set at our virtual dinner table and more than 10,000 hungry children will receive the gift of life-changing meals for a whole year as a result.

Our Christmas dinner with a difference featured guests from Sweden to Sri Lanka, Malta to Mongolia, and Hong Kong to Hungary, as people from across the globe gathered – virtually – for a celebration of friendship and family.

Every place set at our Big Family Christmas table offers a child living in poverty hope for a brighter future by enabling them to make the most of their education.

The promise of a nutritious meal encourages hungry children – who might otherwise skip school to work, beg or scavenge for food – to come to class and gives them energy to concentrate and learn so that they can reach their true potential.

Together, we’re bringing a new year filled with hope to vulnerable children in some of the world’s poorest and most hard to reach places – from conflict zones, refugee settlements and overcrowded urban slums, to remote rural communities.  

Thank you for making this possible!
