As my gift is being sent away tomorrow, I thought I’d upload this post today!
Doing this shoebox appeal every year is a great way to make me feel like I’m getting involved in the charity community and also knowing I’ll be putting smiles on children’s faces who sadly don’t have opportunities like we do!
Hope is the organisation that’s in chage of the Christmas Shoebox Appeal🎁
Basically, people pick a gender, either a boy or a girl and then choose what age group we would like our presents to go to.
There are three age categories, 2-4, 5-9 or 10-14.
I chose a girl, 10-14
The first thing you do is find a shoebox (empty of course)
Then the real fun begins!
There are certain things that aren’t allowed in the boxes, such as war related items, chocolate (it will melt on the way), books with words (they won’t understand) and medicine.
Apart from that, anything is allowed!
So this is what I decided to buy!
Some felt tip pens! I instantly bought them when I saw them because I think kids love anything multi coloured and adds to the excitement of using them!
I really hope you would consider doing this🎄 It really is for a great cause and every child deserves a great Christmas 🎄
If money is the issue as to why you can’t take part, make a box with your friends and split everything between yourselves🎁 or, go to pound shops for the shopping!😇
Have a good evening 💋
Thanks for reading!
