The concept

The non profit organization Les Sapins de Noël des Créateurs (The Designers Christmas Trees) have been raising funds with its prestigious charity event for 20 years now.

Every December, renowned personalities from the world of fashion, design or architecture, bring their talent to offer their unique vision of the Christmas tree. For our past editions, our organization has proudly collaborated with great names such as Jean-Paul Gaultier, Chantal Thomass, Chanel, Dior, Sonia Rykiel and Louis Vuitton.

The works created are auctioned during a charity evening and all the money raised with this auction is then given to support a charity.

Besides a pecuniary support, our event brings to the chosen cause some more notoriety in the media. Last year for instance, several articles (Voici, Gala, Bild, Sipa Press…) and video coverage (prime time TV show on the first French channel, Die Welt.de, Glamour Spain…) relayed the fight against cancer. Previous years, a 52 minutes TV show was recorded and broadcast on TV5 Monde (203 countries, 165 millions households), NRJ 12 or NRJ Paris.

This original idea that consists in designers reinterpreting Christmas to support a great cause was made by Marie-Christiane Marek, the founding president of our organization. She is also a journalist and a broadcast show producer. Since the beginning, she used all her energy to actively support the causes.

Last facet of Les Sapins de Noël des Créateurs, a free exhibition is open few days before the benefit evening in order for everyone to profit of the creativity of the internationally known designers. It is set in an exceptional place in Paris (Carrousel du Louvre, Centre Pompidou, Cité de l'architecture & du patrimoine, Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication, Hôtel Dassault, Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild).

Les associations

This year again we want to support the fight against cancer. Since 2011, our non profit organization keeps giving all the money raised to support the Fondation Avec, presided over by Pr. David Khayat, Chief of the oncology department at the Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital in Paris. In March 2013, the foundation has been recognized of public utility.

The Fondation Avec campaigns against cancer by:
- helping the medical research
- improving the quality of life for the patients
- mobilizing the international community

The last edition of the Designers Christmas Trees raised 86 000 € that were donated to the Foundation Avec. Over the last three editions, an amount of 233 000 € was collected.

Several other charities have also benefited from Les Sapins de Noël des Créateurs fundraisings in the past.

In 2012, thanks to our partnership with Christmasworld and the participation of Messe Frankfurt, 5 000 € have been donated to the non profit organization L’enfant@l’hôpital (child in the hospital) of the Foundation Carla Bruni-Sarkozy to provide pediatric departments with educational digital tools. The year before 10 000 € have been given.

Also in 2012, a partnership with Hankyu in Japan allowed us to support Ashinaga that helps the children stricken by the Tsunami.

In 2009 and 2010, the non profit organization les Sapins de Noël des Créateurs have given the money collected during its the auctions to the Foundation Carla Bruni-Sarkozy on the behalf of L’enfant@l’hôpital. Created in 1986, its mission is to provide digital supplies for hospitalised children and their family to let’s them keep connected with the school.

In 2007 and 2008, we helped Sol en Si (Solidarity for children affected by AIDS), recognized as promoting the public interest. It aims to support in France and in Africa the children as well as their family who deal with HIV or AIDS. Les Sapins de Noël des Créateurs participated to the creation of a therapeutic house in Togo thanks its fundraisings.

The first eleven years, the supported charity was Fondation d'Auteuil. It helps and protects kids aged from 6 to 21 years with their skills into consideration. The money was used for its Orly house and to finance the building of a gymnasium, a playground and a locker room.

Les Sapins de Noël des Créateurs (The Designers Christmas Trees) has existed for 20 years!
It was created at the initiative of journalist Marie-Christiane Marek also TV show Producer. Her original idea is to gather some famous designers around the universal event of Christmas, and then to raise money by selling their art work inspired by the Christmas trees.

Beside her involvement, Marie-Christiane Marek works as a Journalist, covering the fashion shows around the globe. She is the one who, in 1991, brought a new way to deal with this matter on TV by hosting her show Paris Modes on the channel Paris Première. This programme dedicated to ready-to-wear and haute couture in Paris, New York and Milano became an unmissable rendezvous until 2004.

Visionary, Marie Christiane Marek also imagined and created as soon as 2000 Parismodes.tv, a website about luxury. Videos of fashion shows were broadcast as well as internationally distributed by French newsagency AFP.
