Information about the International Christmas Bazaar 2017
This year the International Christmas Bazaar was held on Sunday, 26 November from 11.00-16.00hrs  at the Radisson Blu Sky hotel in Tallinn. 24 Embassies  reserved a table and sold unique items and food from their home countries. Additionally local vendors from Estonia sold handicraft. Popular Tomobla and Silent Auction were organized, pre-loved accessories of IWCT members were in sale. Santa visited the Bazaar and children had their own playroom.


Where will the money go?
ALL proceeds from the event go to charities in Estonia. The event is run strictly by volunteers.  Financial support comes entirely from the sales by the participating Embassies and from generous people like you and concerned organisations like yours.

The main beneficiary:

SOS Children’s Village Association of Estonia is an international social development organisation. Abandoned children requiring care and support and disadvantaged families are the focus of their work. They offer an innovative alternative to foster care by providing children with a safe, permanent family-style home with an SOS-mother and siblings. In the Children’s Village, children have the opportunity to live together in one family with their biological sisters and brothers and keep in touch with their biological parents.
