For 26 years the International Women’s Club of Tallinn has been right at the heart of the Estonian community. Working with and financially supporting (through fundraising) the most needy and vulnerable in society. We are 62 international volunteers from 27 countries committed to 12 nominated charities including SOS Kelia, Lasnamäe children’s home and Kopli Lastekeskus Tähetorn to name a few. This significant work cannot happen without the help and assistance of our supporters and sponsors. We are in challenging times and realising the same fundraising commitment to our charities is a difficult task, one we will embrace. That is why this year our take on the long established International Christmas bazaar will change slightly. Our volunteers are motivated and ready to adapt, we are focusing on primarily the most in need of protection (financially) to survive 2021. Our strategy is to still kindly request support from you, both financially and through gifts (vouchers, prizes), so our long-time customers (up to 4,000 people attend our one day open event – International Christmas Bazaar) can still buy or donate cash (online) and make a difference to our charity partners. For this reason, we are asking please to dig deep and manage to find funds to help us do our job in 2021 and assist women and children desperately in need across Estonia. It may not be obvious the needs of the underprivileged in our society, however, we can tell you that the fundraising last year meant families in need in our charities could receive hot food to their homes during the crisis 2020, children being home schooled received food and education supplies each week to supplement what they would normally have received in school. This IWCT could achieve, these are the things that matter the most. We really have no idea how the crisis will affect this generation of vulnerable children, but we will not stand by and do nothing. IWCT is there to distribute care and support but we can only do this with your help.
