A couple of weeks back I mentioned that the big kid and I had been putting our Christmas Shoebox together for Team Hope, a box full of treats including pants, socks and hygienic products like soap, a toothbrush, and toothpaste and of course a doll, a ball, and some munchies. We even put in a superhero cape in. It’s our fourth year to put a box together, I’m a huge believer in paying it forward, if I can help someone out in need in any way I will try my very best to do so.
The deadline for Christmas shoeboxes has been and past, and I know loads of people who missed it or simply forgot to drop their boxes off in time but there is hope. You can now donate online and have Team Hope create a box for you for a child in Kitui county, in southeast Kenya.
By donating €15 online (via Credit/Debit Card or PayPal) Team Hope and their partner in Kenya will produce a shoebox gift for either a girl or a boy which will include items like what they recommend in their physical Christmas shoeboxes. In the online Christmas shoebox, poor children from Kenya will receive copy books and pens to write with in school, a facecloth, soap, a toothbrush and toothpaste for a child to wash with, something to wear as well as something to wow them with – like a doll or a ball.
Those who live abroad can now take part and make a difference and those who missed the deadline and can now get involved with the online Christmas shoebox. Can you imagine their little faces when they open these Christmas boxes? It’s a wonderful project – it really is a simple gesture!
Please share this and get as many online Christmas shoebox made up for the kids of Kenya this year!
