Students at SSHL in Sigtuna, Sweden, sent together with the Make a Kid Smile Foundation a school bag to the village Sarayaku in Ecuador. The school bag was filled with school material and toys. Letters and photos from year 5 at Josefina School in Sigtuna were also included. Exchanging letters with children in other parts of the world is a good way to get to know each other’s culture.

The students at SSHL and Josefinaskolan in Sigtuna have helped Make a Kid Smile decorate a Christmas Tree for the competition at Stora Brännbo. The tree is covered with Smilies with greetings on the backside. Schools in Ecuador, Russia and Iran have been asked if they want to contribute. These schools also received a letter about Swedish Christmas traditions. The Smilies will be sent to MaKS’ Global Buddy Schools after the competition.
In the Christmas Tree Competition 2010 at Stora Brännbo in Sigtuna we decorated the tree with cards where students at ACME Academy in Nepal and at St Per’s in Sweden had drawn smiles on Make a Kid Smile Santas.
Students at the ACME Academy in Kathmandu, Nepal, put smiles on Make a Kid Smile Santas which were used to decorate a Christmas Tree in Sigtuna, Sweden.
