The Good Holiday Spirit collection is open for donations until Christmas Eve. The donations are used to provide low-income families with children in Finland with €70 food vouchers for buying food to their Christmas table.

The vouchers help families in a challenging situation due to e.g. unemployment, illness, excessive debt, low income or some other crisis situation.

The collection is implemented by the Finnish Red Cross and the Mannerheim League for Child Welfare in cooperation with Yle. The Good Holiday Spirit collection is organised for the 25th time in 2021. Over the years, the collection has supported hundreds of thousands of families.
