EXTENDED: Lovin Milied Is Going To Run For Four More Days To Make Sure We Help More People This Christmas

We're not quite ready to end this Christmas donation project just yet!

Lovin Milied

We asked you take part in the #LovinMiliedChallenge and send your gift boxes to us here in Naxxar or to any of the Atlas Insurance branches near you, and we’re so grateful for what you’ve all helped us achieve so far!

But we said we’re going to collect 700 boxes, and we’re not stopping until we do

Though we’re receiving boxes daily, we set out a target of 700 boxes, and we’re not backing down from our goal.

That’s why we’re extending Lovin Millied to Tuesday 18th December. That’s four extra days to join in!

ALSO: If you can’t drop off your boxes at Lovin Malta’s offices, don't worry- All Atlas Insurance branches are now also drop off points!

Atlas Insurance have stepped in and offered to help us out by using their 11 branches as drop off points for the gift boxes.

You can find the branch closest to you by using their handy branch locator, and then its as simple as leaving your boxes there, and we'll do the rest!

U-Store has graciously offered us a storage space that we can use as our own little Santa workshop, and eCabs will be helping us deliver everything just in time for Christmas. We're so grateful to have them on board!
