Do something good with “2 x Christmas” Donate parcels – together we send parcels of joy.

Swiss Post has been running the “2 x Christmas” charitable campaign since 1997, working together with the Swiss Red Cross (SRC), the broadcaster SRG SSR and retailer Coop. The campaign involves the collection of goods across Switzerland, which are then distributed to the needy in Switzerland, or the proceeds of the online parcels are used to buy food and essential items for people in Eastern Europe.

The campaign ran from 24 December 2018 until 11 January 2019.
