We are delighted to get involved in this years Team Hope Shoebox Appeal.
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!
How to take part in 2019
Getting involved is simple! All you have to do is find an empty shoebox and wrap it in Christmas paper.
Then fill the shoebox with gifts for a boy or girl aged between 2 and 14, and bring it into school on or before Friday, November 8th.
After that we do the rest! We will send the boxes back to the Team Hope centre where teams of fantastic volunteers carefully check that each Shoebox gift meets custom and safety requirements before sealing them and loading them onto a truck to be sent on their way. Once they arrive, Team Hopes International Partners make sure your Christmas Shoebox gifts go directly to a child affected by poverty; for many it will be the only gift like this they’ll have ever received.
