Our Santa Shoeboxes will be in our store this week which is just in time as pledges to the Santa Shoebox Project open today. Our boxes are approved by the project organisers and measure 320x210x110mm. They sell at a subsidised price of R8.00 each.
The Santa Shoebox Project is an initiative of the Kidz2Kidz Trust. The Trust is registered as a Public Benefit Organization and a Non Profit Organisation. The Santa Shoebox Project originated in Cape Town and has grown in leaps and bounds, with the number of Santa Shoeboxes growing from a humble 180 boxes in 2006 to a record 118 274 in 2013. The boxes are distributed to more than 1000 recipient facilities, through more than 60 satellites around South Africa and Namibia. The success of the Project can largely be attributed to its personal nature – donors give gifts to children whose names, ages and genders are known.
