As the Christmas rush hits the sorting offices of TNT Post, hundreds of TNT employees, their friends and family and other volunteers gather together to work an evening shift in the centres to raise money for WFP projects in Malawi. 4 hours sorting post and parcels of 1 volunteer yields enough money to feed and educate a child in Malawi for a whole year.
What started out as a small, individual endeavour has grown into a large, professional, well-organised initiative. The number of participants has grown from 50 in 2004 to 400 in 2007. Where the project raised a good €1,250 in its first year, in 2007 it yielded an amazing amount of €25,600!
But the incredible results of last December’s toiling in the sorting centres beat all expectations: 720 people participated in the project, together raising a staggering €65.927.40!
