This year, there will be no champagne or chocolates.
We have decided to channel most of Excelsior’s gift budget into helping the children of the Fondation Les Orphelins Apprentis d’Auteuil.
And we thought, why not organize a toy race… 🎁
Based on an idea by Jeremy Harroch, and thanks to the permission of Jean-Michel Grunberg (La Grande Récré), we decided to invite the children of the association to one of the biggest toy stores in the world, and let them take for 1 minute… 𝐓𝐎𝐔𝐒 𝐋𝐄𝐒 𝐂𝐀𝐃𝐄𝐀𝐔𝐗 𝐝𝐞 𝐥𝐞𝐮𝐫 𝐜𝐡𝐨𝐢𝐱, 𝐬𝐚𝐧𝐬 𝐚𝐮𝐜𝐮𝐧𝐞 𝐥𝐢𝐦𝐢𝐭𝐞! !! 🎅🏼
It’s not much considering the hardship of their situation (the pandemic not helping), but we tried to realize for a moment, this dream we all had as kids. The best part is that many of them took toys for their friends who couldn’t come, rather than thinking about themselves.
Bravo to all the heroes of 𝐀𝐩𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐬 𝐝’𝐀𝐮𝐭𝐞𝐮𝐢𝐥; those framers who spend not 1 but 365 days a year giving time, values, and love to children who have been deprived of it; and that’s worth more than all the gifts in the world 💝
Merry Christmas to all!
