The Children's Office has been organising the "Christmas Campaign" since 1996. Since then, every year more and more children write their wish on a card. These cards are then hung on Christmas trees in various shops and Volksbank branches in Frankfurt from the end of November (always the Monday after "Totensonntag") until mid-December. 


Due to the pandemic, the concept had to be adapted in 2020. This year, the campaign will again take place in its proven form.


The campaign will start on Monday, 21.11.2022. All citizens of Frankfurt can then take a card from the tree, fulfil the wish and hand in the gift in the shop or at the Children's Office ("Kinderbüro"). An overview of the shops and branches is available on the website of the Children's OfficeExternal Link. The value of the gift is between 20 and 25 euros. The last day to hand in gifts is Thursday, 15.12.2021.


Shortly before Christmas, all children will receive their personal Christmas gift. This year, more than 5,300 children will again receive gifts!
