Every Box is Special Because Every Child is Special
You can make a diﬀerence too. Every year, with your help, the Christmas Shoebox Appeal sends thousands of gift-ﬁlled shoeboxes to children in Africa and Eastern Europe.
The children who receive your shoeboxes are aﬀected by poverty in diﬀerent ways. Many come from families with very little income, others live on the margins of society or in areas aﬀected by conﬂict. Shoeboxes are given based on need alone and bring joy and excitement to children living in often very diﬃcult situations. You can help us do that this year!
