The year has progressed really quickly – the festive season is already approaching! It’s often a great time of year, as we spend it reconnecting with family and friends, and celebrating the year gone by. However, it can be heartbreaking for people who struggle to make ends meet. But, as they do every year, the Santa Shoebox Project offers us an opportunity to spread the love and experience the joy of giving.
The group collects gifts for children from vulnerable social backgrounds, including orphanages, children’s homes and care centres across the country – and has been doing it for the past eight years. This year’s theme is KISS: Keep it Sustainable Santa!
The initiate offers three separate ways to give:
The target is 100 000 boxes, and last year’s donors exceeded this number by 20 000! All of these options can be easily done via the new Santa Shoebox website . If you don’t know what to put in your box the new website’s gifting guidelines will help.
