This year the Christmas Charity Tree, placed in the Lobby of the hotel, draws attention with the theme – Santa’s Toy Factory. Beautifully crafted sugarpieces, made by the hotel’s pastry artists, are stacked up on a conical steel structure to form a giant Christmas Tree.
Organisations and individuals are invited to sponsor a sugarpiece with a minimum donation of RM1,000. The donors’ names or company logos are prominently displayed against each sugarpiece. The money donated will go to children who are in urgent need of funds for immediate surgeries and medical care.
The Christmas Charity Tree is an annual charity project titled “Embrace the Gift of Life” initiated by the Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur to aid children suffering from severe heart ailments and loss of limbs. Since 1985 the hotel has helped hundreds of critically ill children and raised more than RM3 million through this Christmas Charity Tree.
