The Amazing Journey of a Simple Shoebox Gift Begins With You

You may not have had time pack a shoebox this year – and most of our drop off locations are now closed. You can still send a shoebox gift to a child in need this Christmas through our online shoebox programme. Simply choose who you want to pack for, select the gifts you want to pack, make your payment and we will pack and send it for you. You can even personalise your gift with a photo and message if you would like. This year our online shoeboxes are being sent to children in Moldova.
