Article Featured Image

Malta and Gozo’s streets are steadily being lit up by our collective Christmas cheer. Going on your Sunday drive has never been more cheerful: from Santa Claus mannequins clambering up balconies to those Attard homes which go all out! 

So why not get into the Christmas spirit by becoming an honorary elf and helping take some of the weight off Santa’s shoulders with the Lovin Milied challenge?

What is Lovin Milied?

Lovin Milied is our annual initiative aimed at helping you connect to several charities and foundations across Malta and Gozo. You just need to put on your elf ears and lend a helping hand in making their Christmas morning as magical as yours!

All you need to do is pick a gifting category and assemble a box that will be opened on Christmas morning. 

Use our #LovinMiliedChallenge filter to see which box you should make. Head on over to Instagram, press on the sparkle ✨  icon, pick which filter you wish to use, press ‘Try it’ and test out the special Lovin Milied filter. 

Don’t know which box you should make? Let our filter tell you!

Buy it, box it, bring it, and head on down to the Lovin Malta office or one of Atlas Insurance’s many branches to drop off your ready-made Lovin Milied box.

So far, the doggies have been getting quite some love, with a lovely elf dropping off loads of boxes and bags of dry food for them to enjoy. We just can’t wait to make these dogs’ Christmas mornings!

Kids are feeling the love too with some adorably wrapped boxes just waiting for them. There’s nothing better than giving these wonderful little humans something to look forward to this Christmas morning. 

Make sure you build your own box and drop it off at one of Atlas’ 10 branches located all over Malta. None of this would be possible without Atlas Insurance and RYDE, who have really stepped up to the plate and are working wonders in helping us spread the Christmas cheer! 

Our elves will be accepting gift boxes until the 17th December, so make sure you don’t leave your elf duties to the last minute. Remember, it’s the thought that counts, not the price tag. Sharing what you can always makes a difference, so get wrapping!
