500,000 German children to sing carols, collect funds for needy children

Catholic World News - December 22, 2011

In the days leading up to Epiphany, nearly a half million German Catholic children will dress as Magi and take part in the Holy Childhood Association’s 54th caroling campaign to raise funds for needy children around the world. This year’s theme focuses on the right of children to be free of abuse, exploitation, and violence.

Last year’s campaign, which raised $53.7 million, funded 2,100 projects and assisted children in 110 nations.
