Photographer and florist Tiina Tahvanainen created as well as photographed the wreaths shown on this year's Christmas seals. The result is four beautiful door wreaths, which will fit perfectly on any Christmas door or, as Christmas seals, even as decoration on your greeting cards.
The Post devotes its proceeds from the sale of Christmas seals to charity every year. This year's beneficiaries are the Neck Injured in Åland, Åland Fountain House Association and Germundö Alpin.
The group Neck Injured in Åland is a recently established subdivision of the association Åland Disabled Persons. The group's goal is to observe and maintain the interests and social rights of people with neck injuries. The money received will be used for spreading information about the group.
Åland Fountain House Association runs Pelaren (the pillar), a clubhouse model of psychosocial rehabilitation. The association provides restorative programs for people who are or have been in contact with psychiatric care. The donation will be spent on a hobby greenhouse, perfectly suited for the clubhouse activities aiming at improving the working capacity of the members.
Germundö Alpin operates alpine skiing facilities with two downhill skiing slopes located in Saltvik. The organisation will be purchasing a rescue toboggan to be used in connection with possible accidents on the slopes.
The set was released on October 7.
