REALIZATION OF DREAMS
The main objective of ‘The Tree of Dreams’ is to make possible the wish of boys and girls who will hardly have the gift they want at Christmas due to the scarce economic resources of their family.
To do this, the children benefiting from the initiative have written a letter asking for the gifts they would like to receive, the company details in a note.
All these letters have been distributed throughout the CaixaBank network in such a way that customers and employees can request one of the letters and, in this way, contribute to making the wish expressed by the minor come true.
Once the package is prepared, it must be delivered to the same office where the letter was received, with an identification label that facilitates the organization to guarantee traceability and correct delivery. The deadline for receiving gifts will end on December 15.
In addition, in this edition, and for the first time, CaixaBank will have the collaboration of El Corte Inglés.
For every two gifts that the participants of this solidarity initiative acquire through its official website, El Corte Inglés will donate an additional gift that will be channeled through the Red Cross and will go to refugee children in Spain who have not had the opportunity to write your letter.
Thanks to this collaboration, the gifts will be multiplied and reach many more vulnerable children.
For the second consecutive year, the initiative is extrapolated to the entire CaixaBank Group network.
Thanks to this, ‘The Tree of Dreams’ in 2021 will achieve the largest extension of its history throughout the territory.
CaixaBank has the largest commercial network in the financial sector in Spain, with more than 6,000 branches, it is present in 100% of the towns with more than 10,000 inhabitants and in 94% of those with more than 5,000.
