Nov 10, Brasilia: Children and the elderly will benefit from the Voluntary Christmas campaign launched this Monday (9th) at Planalto Palace. Donations may be made until December 10 and aim to benefit 10,000 children and 8,000 elderly people across the country.


New or used toys will be collected at collection points. Those interested in supporting with resources should access the Pátria Voluntária platform ( patriavoluntaria.org ). Agreements are also being signed with private companies to support the actions.



“Pátria Voluntária's portal will be the bridge between those who want to help and the host institutions. I count on the help of each one of you to make the Christmas of these children and the elderly more welcoming ”, said the President of the Board of the Volunteer Country program, Michele Bolsonaro, when launching the campaign.


The event was attended by President Jair Bolsonaro.


Alliance for Volunteering

And during a ceremony at the Planalto Palace, the “Alliance for Volunteering” was presented. Spouses of public persons were invited to participate as ministers; governors and governor; and ambassadors and ambassadors, in addition to representatives of international organizations operating in Brazil.


The initiative seeks to stimulate the culture of volunteering in Brazil and expand the reach of actions on behalf of the most vulnerable. “We believe that joining efforts, we will go further, achieve more and better results and exponentially multiply the culture of volunteering in the country through civic actions, sustainable development, cultural, educational, scientific, recreational actions and promotion assistance and defence of human and animal rights ”, said the executive secretary of the Pátria Voluntária Program, Adriana Pinheiro.



Voluntary Homeland

The National Volunteer Incentive Program, known as the Voluntary Fatherland, aims to encourage the practice of volunteering as an act of humanity, citizenship and love for others; and to stimulate the growth of the third sector, contributing to the transformation of Brazil into a more just and solidary country. Pátria Voluntária completed a year in July 2020 and there are already more than 650 registered institutions that gather around 15 thousand volunteers.


Friends of the Voluntary Fatherland

Also on Monday, at the Planalto Palace, the Friends of the National Volunteer Awards were held, an initiative instituted by the Federal Government through a decree published in 2019. The action aims to honour those who contribute to volunteering in the country.


They received the award (commemorative plaques) from volunteers, entities and state first ladies.



"This award is a small recognition for the beautiful work they do," said the first lady, Michelle Bolsonaro.


The following institutions were honoured: Grupo Dorcas Adfloripa (SC); Instituto do Carinho (DF), Pequeno Cotolengo do Paraná (PR), League of Cancer Fighting Paraná (PR) and Paraná Worker's Hospital (PR).
