- The program must travel over 5,500 kilometers between November 26 and December 20
The Christmas Social Caravan, organized by Coca-Cola FEMSA Brazil, is ready to depart. From November 26 until December 20, the program will bring the happiness and spirit of Christmas to children aged 4 to 11 from ten different cities in the states where the company operates (Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Mato Grosso do Sul, Minas Gerais, and Parana.) With the support of the VIP Cultural Co. Agency, which promotes shows and performances, the Caravan will travel over 5,500 kilometers through three different regions of Brazil.
This year, the play focuses on the topic “Let’s learn how to take care of what is ours,” which addresses the importance of the conservation of the environment, a conscious consumption, the reutilization of materials, and values such as union, dedication, and respect.
The event reaches its 17th year, consolidating its tradition in the regions where Coca-Cola FEMSA Brazil operates. The program focuses on stirring the magic of Christmas with stories that develop the children’s awareness on important current issues.
The program’s Christmas spirit affects not only children; the employees of Coca-Cola FEMSA Brazil also get involved in this activity, participating as volunteers while contributing to the materialization of the project.
Ana Flavia Rodrigues, manager of External Communication and Sustainability at Coca-Cola FEMSA Brazil, highlights the importance of this project and the goal of bringing the Christmas spirit and joy to children. “The Christmas Social Caravan is a great opportunity to communicate an important message to children of these communities, a message of consciousness and union. It is also a time to celebrate Christmas, spreading the magic of the season throughout the cities were we operate. There is nothing better than doing this for the children, especially those who frequently don’t have the opportunity”.
