How we offer gifts as Christmas help for disadvantaged communities this year.

Christmas tree

This festive season we decided to offer Christmas help and make our end of year countdown more meaningful. How ? By giving back and supporting those in need around us. Empowering local communities is

 close to our hearts, we always want to remember about others and that’s why we organised Christmas gifts for a local charity in Montpellier Les restos du Coeur.

Reversed Advent Calendar – Christmas help for communities

As opposed to opening daily envelopes with little chocolates or gifts, we set up an Advent Calendar box in our office and asked our colleagues to bring little items, toys and other Christmas gifts that will be given to a charity called Les restos du Coeur. It’s a French organisation managing distribution of food packages and hot meals to the needy and in December collecting Christmas donations. Indeed, they help not only homeless but also all those with a low or very low income. So far we received toys and books,  gadgets, accessories, little and big Christmas gifts. And we cannot wait to see reactions of people who will open our small presents! We hope they will bring smile to their faces!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

And we take this opportunity to wish you smile and happiness from Rakuten Aquafadas. May this festive season sparkle and shine, may all of your wishes and dreams come true. Merry Christmas and Happy New year from all of us here in sunny Montpellier (no snow for us sadly!). We hope to continue working with each one of you on solving your digital content challenges. And we want to make your innovation dreams happen!
