Christmas Tree Project 2013-Metropole 1

28 Nov – 28 Dec 2013
Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi

From Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi:

Christmas is in the air. When gifts come from the heart, the warmth of Christmas brings joy and unity. This holiday, the Metropole finds no better way to celebrate than to bring happiness to disadvantaged children. Since 28th November 2013, Hanoi’s tallest Christmas tree (a 15-meter pine) is displayed on the hotel’s Le Balcon. The view promises to be breathtaking: thousands of white lights will be strung along the hotel’s façade and interior gardens.

This year, 50 children from Humanitarian Services for Children of Vietnam (HSCV) have been invited to take part in Christmas celebrations at the Metropole Hanoi. HSCV is dedicated to serving orphans, homeless children and other needy children in Vietnam.

To further support HSCV, the hotel has collaborated with Art Vietnam Gallery and 11 local artists: Dang Anh Viet, Dinh Thi Tham Poong, Ngo Van Sac, Nguyen Hoang Nam, Nguyen Nghia Cuong, Nguyen Ngoc Lam, Nguyen Quang Thang, Nguyen The Hung, Nguyen Van Phuc, Pham Huy Thong, Tran Hoang Son, plus many big companies to create 11 fabulous Christmas trees displayed in the Metropole courtyard until 28th December for public viewing. Members of the public will get the chance to vote for their favourite Christmas tree, with an award then presented to the winning company and artist.

The children have written their wishes in red envelopes, to be hung on the Metropole’s Christmas tree throughout the holiday season (from 28th November to 28th December). Our guests are invited to donate into an envelope – and help make a child’s wish come true.

This the season to give and we thank you for your generosity for those in need. Additionally, if you wish to give a donation, please kindly put it in this envelope and drop it in the red box placed under the tree. We will give 100 percent of your donations to the children, in the form of their wished for gift.

We wish you and your family a happy holiday and New Year.
