While the 'window' for dropping off shoeboxes is now closing, it's not too late for people across the country to send gift filled shoeboxes to disadvantaged children around the world this Christmas!
People can still take part through Shoebox World – a fun and interactive programme to create a shoebox online. It's a quick and easy way to create a shoebox gift for a child overseas. People can choose from a great selection of toys, education supplies, hygiene accessories and other items. Samaritan's Purse volunteers will then place the chosen gifts in decorated shoeboxes and send them for distribution overseas to vulnerable children, boys and girls between 2 and 14 years of age.
Gift-filled shoeboxes created online can also include a personalised message and/or a photo for the child receiving their shoebox, a simple thing to do but something that makes each shoebox so special, so memorable.
Samaritan's Purse UK Executive Director Simon Barrington said: “We want to tell children receiving these shoeboxes that, whatever their circumstances, people in the UK do care about them and are thinking about them this Christmas.”
People wanting to create a shoebox online through Shoebox World need simply go to www.shoeboxworld.org.uk.
