This year, we also have a special request.
We’re aiming to collect 800 fluffy blankets to keep people warm throughout the colder months.
So, this is what you need to do:
1. Grab a shoebox and wrap the base and lid separately in festive wrapping paper. No need to seal the box!
2. Choose a gift box from the list above, and fill it with the appropriate pressies
Get on down to the Lovin Malta HQ from 09:00 till 19:00 with your boxes on either the 10th, 11th, 12th, or 14th December.

Give us a buzz on the intercom once you arrive, and if we don’t answer call us on our Lovin Milied hotline at 79821055.
The response we got last time was so overwhelming that we didn’t have enough space to store all the gifts you guys brought. This year, we’re making sure that doesn’t happen.
We’ve reached out to even more organisations and homes, so we really need your help!
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!
