The 14th annual Giving Tree celebration was a huge success, thanks to our volunteers and sponsors. 500 children recieved Christmas gifts in Boston's South End, Medford, and Somerville over the course of a 2 day, power packed Christmas marathon weekend.
Children sang Christmas carols, took pictures with Santa, listened to story telling, and played Christmas trivia to win prizes. As much as we gave, one volunteer put it best "The smiles on the childrens faces was the greatest reward."

CHILD MUST BE PRESENT WITH PARENT TO GET GIFTS. NO KID, NO PRESENT.
The painfully slow economic recovery has left countless Massachusetts families in a prolonged fight to maintain the bare essentials.
For them, the day after Thanksgiving is not a chance to get a great buy at the mall; it is another painful reminder that they may lack the means to provide their children a merry Christmas. You can help by setting up a Giving Tree donation box at your business, or company where people can donate an unwraped gift for a child in need.
HERE IS HOW IT WORKS: Set up a Giving Tree, decorated with gift tags of the children’s name, age, and gift request. We will provide you with the names of children. People can pick a nametag/ gift label with the name and/or gender, age, and in most cases, the gift request of the child. Do not lose this label! You will need to secure it to your gift so that we can make sure it is given to the proper child. Please DO NOT wrap your gift. Place your gift in the donation box for Mass Appeal International. Call Us when the donation box is ready to be picked up at 781-321-0406. We will pick up on Dec 17th, 18th and 19th.
You can sponsor a child’s gift request individually, or participate in a group with friends or co-workers. You can work in teams of any size to purchase one gift or 20! The size of your group and the number of gifts that you sponsor is up to you – the most important thing is that you give something.
Mass Appeal International Giving Tree will kick off the first week of November, and gifts will be collected until the week before Christmas:
