Vodafone Foundation to spread smiles on 2500 children once again

December 5, 2018
For the third year running, the Vodafone Foundation will distribute happiness to children in the interior of Portugal with the support of eight municipalities: Mirandela, Freixo de Espada à Cinta, Covilhã, Soure, Gavião, Arraiolos, Ferreira do Alentejo and Loulé between 5 and 14 December.

The crew of the Sleigh of Smiles begins its journey of around 1500 km today and consists of a huge team that includes 45 volunteer Vodafone employees aiming to create smiles, spread happiness and offer gifts and balloons to children aged 6 to 10.

In each city, Father Christmas will be much in evidence and will be available for photos and chats with the children, who will be welcomed by a very special band, Band&nha, while they wait for the start of the circus show – Christmas for All – featuring the Malatish company, which will certainly make for an unforgettable party for thousands of children this festive season.
