Monster Travel donates Christmas presents

Monster Travel donated a number of presents this past Christmas to underprivileged and abused children across Tenerife.

Instead of doing Secret Santa among themselves, the Monster Travel staff decided to instead buy gifts and donate them to orphanages. The Monster Travel team chose Tenerife because not only is it one of the most popular destinations where they offer discount holidays and breaks, it is also where one of their offices is based.

After some research, donating to an orphanage was not viable as the team at Monster Travel discovered there were no orphanages on Tenerife. But after contacting several organisations, the Tenerife government recommended they call the Red Cross, a charity that helps vulnerable people from across the globe.

The gift that keeps on giving

Following a phone call with the Tenerife Red Cross, Monster Travel were advised that there were a number of under-privileged children and abused children in their local area who were in desperate need of some help.

The Red Cross provided the team with a list of 50 children who needed some help and detailed information such as their sex and age so that Monster Travel employees could buy presents the kids would really enjoy. Then each employee from the Monster Travel team chose a child to buy a gift for.

Angela, Marketing Assistant at Monster Travel, added, “All of the employees took part, and it was very humbling the amazing effort that everyone made.

“4 of my colleagues and myself went to the Red Cross to deliver the Christmas gifts, we were able to give some of the gifts direct to some of the families, and there were tears shed on both sides.”

The project was such a success that Monster Travel are now looking to continue with ongoing support for these children.
