Easter Activity 2014 in Austria - employees make the children at Anton Afritsch Children's Village happy by bringing them gifts

40 children are housed in the Anton Afritsch Children's Village on Steinberg mountain, in Graz. The staff there make an effort to provide the children and adolescents with the best professional care, and their aim is to help adolescents gradually adapt to life outside the Children's Village.

This year, many of the Lyoness Austrian Office employees supported the children from the Children's Village, who were also enthusiastic participants at the Lyoness Children's Flying Day. The employees bought educational games, books, balls and cinema tickets, and they also donated old toys, books and cuddly toys. These will be put back into use, to make the children happy.

It wasn't only the presents that made the day unique for the children and employees. It was spending the whole afternoon together that made it so special. The children had their faces painted, they drew on T-shirts, and to end the day well, we all looked for hidden Easter nests together, which were full of sweets and small gifts.
It was a day away from daily life, a day that was fun for everyone, which showed that you can make people really happy by giving them attention and small gifts.
