I read about the Santa Shoebox Project on the plane going to Jo’burg and I think it’s awesome.
It’s a super inspiring project that co-ordinates the donation, collection and distribution of Christmas presents to underprivileged children across South Africa. The best bit is that it’s personal and you can choose your child by their name, gender and age.
Santa Shoebox asks that you fill your decorated shoebox with the following items:
• Toothpaste and a toothbrush
• Bar of soap and a washcloth
• An outfit of clothing
• Educational supplies
• A toy
Anything else you’d like to give (and fits in the box!) is up to you.
Such a simple, cute initiative that’s easy to take part in and will make a little kid super happy at Christmas. What else could you ask for?
I’ll make sure to put some photos up when we’ve made our shoeboxes. Si has a 5 year old boy called Prince and I have a 4 year old girl called Emihle. Yay!
