Santa Orphan Appeal

Hi, my name is Mack, I'm ten years old and I will be travelling with my parents and a team of volunteers to bring the magic of Christmas and Santa to  over 1,000 children living in orphanages in Belarus this Christmas. I am raising money to buy toys for the children, and to put playgrounds in at least two more orphanages this year. 
Every single euro raised will be spent on toys for the Orphanages and will go towards the much needed playground for the children  (all volunteers  pay their own flights, board and food).

IODP is a very special charity that operates at as close to 0% admin as is possible. IODP have raised €4 million in recent years and ALL of the money has been spent on orphanage improvements - hot water showers, beds, linen, books and libraries and bringing Santa to the children EVERY YEAR.
