Wish Tree Program
The Sir Brian Bell Foundation alongside the Brian Bell Group have selected numerous charities and causes nationwide to help support those in need during the Christmas period with their annual “Wish Tree Program” making Christmas Wishes come true across Papua New Guinea.
Brian Bell Group customers across Homecentres, Trade Electrical, Chemicals and Agriculture nationwide are invited to purchase a ‘Christmas wish bauble” and place on one of our many in-store Christmas trees located nationwide. These special donations from our loyal customers helped the Sir Brian Bell Foundation continue their efforts to provide much-needed support to individuals and charities across Papua New Guinea.
100% of funds raised were delivered to carefully selected charities with an additional substantial cash donation made by the Foundation to contribute beyond what customers helped to raise to continue their efforts.
We could not be more excited by the outcome and results of our Christmas Wishing Tree initiative.

A new Christmas bauble theme has been selected each year, in 2017 our first launch year an elegant bauble design was selected which could be purchased for only K5. In 2018 Brian Bell Group customers were asked to purchase a K2 Rudolph Nose and hang on our in-store trees.
In 2017, 7 charities were selected by the Foundation including Gateway Children’s Fund, Mama Rose Orphanage, Callan Services, Kundiawa Children’s Hospital, Femili PNG, City Mission, Kimbe West New Britain General Hospital who all received additional funding.
In 2018, BBG team members hand-picked 7 charities to receive donations during the Christmas period which included City Mission (Port Moresby), Femili (Lae), Links of Hope (Mt Hagen), Modilon Hospital (Madang), Mount Sion Centre for the Blind (Goroka), Couppe House (Kokopo) and the Dental Clinic at Kimbe General Hospital (Kimbe). Customers purchased K2 Rudolph nose bauble.
Brian Bell Customer Roa Eovua praised Brian Bell for “doing a wonderful job,” not only to help different charities each year but also to allow its customers to give something back to the poor.
It is our hope that 2019 will be our best “Wish Tree Promotion” yet, with the Christmas theme to be announced later in the year.
