The 2017 Shoebox Appeal is here!
Each year we send shoe boxes full of gifts and packed with love to less fortunate children in Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Without these gifts, these children would not have a Christmas at all..
How can you help bring Christmas to some of the poorest children in the world this year?
Get a shoebox. Use your own or pick one up from one of our collection / drop-off points found below.
Is it for a boy or a girl? Download a copy of the girl/boy stickers, tick the appropriate age and stick it on the outside of the lid.
What should you pack? Toys, school supplies, hygiene items or others which can be found here.
Make your donation. a suggested project donation of £5 per shoe box - which helps ensure your shoe box gets to where it needs to go, as well as providing training for the teams that deliver the shoe boxes. Simply put your donation in the box or donate online if at all possible.
Take your shoe box to your local drop off point, gift wrapped (box and lid separately) and secure with a rubber band between 1st and 18th November.
