Support charity, together with Kappa Data
During this Christmas event, we focus on 2 charities to give people a warmer Christmas. Both Kappa Data and its vendors, will be giving a large donation to these charities. Do you want to help as well? Support the charities or give a little donation immediately via your banking app (a QR code will be available). Below you’ll find more information about the charity causes and what you can raise:
- De Warmste Week: This is a solidarity action of VRT (Vlaamse Radio- en Televisie Omroep), which is organized annually in the week before Christmas, from December 18 to 24. Through the website you can choose a charity for which you want to organize an action. The focus this year is Child Poverty.
- VoedselOndersteuning Gent vzw (VOG): This is our locally chosen charity. It supports initiatives that fight hunger and poverty in Ghent, mainly by providing financial support for the collection and distribution of food and other basic needs in the Ghent region. Support this umbrella organization in Ghent for multiple organizations.
What materials can you collect?

We are collecting the following clothing:
- Warm children’s clothing (0-12 years).

Through Enchanté we collect toys. You can also collect your Christmas toys for ‘Kookploeggent’, preferably wrapped in Christmas wrapping paper. We obviously only receive toys that still work.
Personal care products for babies
We collect care products through Baby-Nest. These are standard baby care products such as bath foam, lotion or baby oil.
Through Baby-Nest we collect diapers, preferably pampers size number 5. This size they desperately need and can be found in for example the Kruidvat.
