Send out a seasonal message to everyone during Brussels Wish

14:33 22/12/2021

Want to share a seasonal greeting with the whole capital? Brussels Wish displays everyone’s message on four big screens placed around Brussels-City and Molenbeek.

Anyone can deliver a message, whether to someone special or just in general. The message will be displayed on all the screens at once, with screens at Porte de Namur, Place Rogier, Mont des Arts and Place Communale in Molenbeek.

Messages can be sent via the Brussels Wish website  or via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram by using the hashtag #BrusselsWish. Photos can be attached, which will be displayed along with your greeting.

Greetings can also be sent via text message to 0460 20 30 17. Better yet, send your text to 4666, and the €1 charge goes to the Red Cross.

Brussels Wish is organised by Divers-City Asbl. “In a time when closures and limits are the order of the day, social networks are an outstanding way to bring people together,” said the organisers in a statement. “It is really essential to keep being social, to wave, to smile, to show empathy – even virtually.”
