Shoebox distributions:

Dear Friends,

Over the past 10 days, Children in Distress has delivered 5,000+ shoe boxes of gifts to children and elders in Bucharest and the surrounding area. Many of you contributed those boxes or donated money for gifts to go in the boxes. We are truly grateful for your generous support of this effort to bring some holiday cheer to those on the margins. Thank you!

In CiD’s partnership with Santa Claus, last week Santa delivered 100+ of those boxes. The two days of delivery were captured by Trinitas TV, the Romanian Orthodox Church’s TV station in Romania. We thought you might want to see the two short TV segments. They are mostly in Romanian, but the pictures show what words do not adequately express.

CiD and Santa continue deliveries Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.

Thank you again for your support in this endeavour.

Merry Christmas,

Children in Distress
