HO HO HO! Warm WElCOME to Christmas market in a shoe box!

We are Franzi and Paul and together we initiated this project „Christmas market in a shoe box“.

Christmas is a season for reflection and hope for the future. With your help, we would like to show that, in these hard times, there is every reason to hope. To bring people together once again. To remember that, deep in our hearts, we all feel compassion, love, hope and kindness. And to share those feelings with all those who have recently been overcome by loneliness, despair and sorrow.

We would like to reach out a hand to them and let them know they are not alone. Together, we are stronger. We can support, comfort and simply be there for one another.


As you can’t go to the Christmas markets again this year, we have come up with the idea of bringing the Christmas market to you, instead – a Christmas market in a shoe box.


How does it work? Here, on this website, you will find all the Christmas market stalls online. Your task is to buy some small items worth a total of €30. They are delivered to your home. Then you wrap them up in a parcel – which you could decorate nicely, perhaps? You can be as creative as you like.


The most important thing is to send a personal message of hope. A little letter with a few kind words for the person receiving the parcel. And who is that?










That’s where things get interesting!

The person packing up the parcel doesn’t know who it’s for. The parcels are then sent to another randomly selected participant. You can, of course, add your address so that they can send a thankyou message. All the people who send a parcel then receive a parcel themselves. And vice versa 🙂


Interested? Then help us out by telling other people about our scheme in the short time available to us, so that as many people hear about it as possible.

You wanna join? What to do now: 

If you wanna join, then click here. You confirm two times, then you send us your address. Then you visit our online Christmas market. There you choose articles worth of 30 Euros and put it in the package. Now the most important part: You think about, what gives you hope, true hope. And you remember the light of hope, that shines in you. And now you write a letter or you put your hope in the package in the way, that suits you best. Then you send it to the adress, that you got from us. And you wait for your own package ☺️
