Event Name :

Love in a box 2013


Event Date : 25/09/2013
Venue : Across the UK
Description :

Our Founding Director devised the first Christmas Shoebox Campaign, both to harness the goodwill of Christmas and to bring joy to the children of the Balkans for whom Father Christmas was unlikely to call and even less likely to afford a Christmas gift. Over the years with the help and good will of donors throughout the United Kingdom, we were able to reinforce the message of Christmas, foster the joy of giving and bring smiles to the faces of hundreds of thousands little ones otherwise likely to receive little or nothing.

This year with the help of volunteers in Yorkshire and in County Durham, we intend to bring all our experience and network of contacts to bear and unlike many of the organisations and companies that took over when our efforts changed, uniquely will guarantee that each box collected will be with a child for Christmas.

We really hope that children from Schools and congregations throughout Yorkshire and County Durham will want to help by being part of our Shoebox Collection Appeal 2006.

The focus of our efforts will ask for help in September, October and November only after the summer vacation is over, but we know from experience, that asking for help early in the year allow you to fit this appeal into a calendar of activities.
