The holidays are nearly upon us, and while we should think of those less fortunate year round, Christmas is often a time when we are looking to do something a little special.

Over the next month, we´ll be bringing you profiles of local non-profit organizations that could use your help. People in Need is an international aid organization; is an association of cat shelters across the Czech Republic; Betel helps young, at-risk men addicted to alcohol or drugs put their lives back together and find new meaning by engaging them in work and finally, Světluška is a long running and important project of the National Fund of Czech Radio that helps children and adults with severe sight disorders.

A simple way to put a smile on a child´s face this Christmas is to participate in our yearly holiday project. has teamed up with Vienna International Hotels & Resorts to help some needy children living in two area children´s homes: Charlotty Masarykové in Prague 5 and the children´s home in Zruč nad Sázavou. We hope to not only improve the children’s living environment, but also fulfill some personal wishes. A wish list will be posted on our website, and you´ll have the opportunity to purchase the items requested. We ask that you then notify us so we can take the item off the list.

Items can be dropped off at any of these locations:
· office: Anglická 26, Prague 2
· Hotel Le Palais, U Zvonařky 1, Prague 2
· Savoy Hotel, Keplerova 6, Prague 1 (Prague castle district)
