For this reason, together with the Hotel Negresco Princess we collaborate one more year with the Barcelona Forum District in the Tree of Illusions campaign to bring gifts to children around us, through a toy collection in which our team and all our guests can participate to contribute to this solidarity cause.

From December until January 2 we will have a large Christmas tree at the reception of both #hotelscompromesos in Barcelona where you can deliver toys that we will send to children from disadvantaged families next 06th January.

The Trinijove Foundation also participates in this cause to bring the toys to all these families with children between 5 and 12 years.

In the hotel chain Princess Hotels & Resorts, we take into account the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and following our 360º sustainable project, we like to participate in this type of actions, we want to contribute in order that all children can have a Christmas full of surprises and joy, so we encourage you to help us.

 

One more year Barcelona helps the Three Wise Kings to give illusion.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Barcelona Forum District (BFD) together with hotels and other companies that wanted to collaborate, have brought the illusion to children whose families are in a vulnerable social and economic situation through a Christmas campaign to collect toys.

This action is organized by the Trinijove Foundation, in collaboration with the Diagonal Mar Shopping Center and Barcelona Forum District. In the same campaign, a campaign has been promoted to sponsor 40 children of the Centre Obert Neus Puig and his brothers. These children, between 5 and 12 years old, have written their letters to the Three Wise Kings asking them for their favorite gift, and the collaborating companies of this campaign have been in charge of making the illusions of these children happen. A total of 200 toys have been collected, including the sponsored toys that the children of Trinijove have received. A great part of these toys has also been distributed among the families that usually go to the Sant Martí Center, located between La Verneda and La Pau neighborhoods. This center has done an important job, since it has distributed toys this year to 170 children of the Sant Martí district. Gifts have also reached the Sant Joan Baptista church in Sant Adrià.

Many thanks to all those people who have contributed to bring magic and illusion through the Three Wise Kings to all this children !!
