Christmas Shoebox Project

There may be a lot of presents with your name on them under the Christmas tree, but there are millions of kids around the world who have never received gifts because they are victims of war, poverty, disease and natural disasters. Why don't you send some Christmas cheer to some of these kids in need this holiday season by sending them a shoebox full of gifts? Find out what the Christmas Shoebox Project is all about!

Christmas Shoebox Project - A Little Box Goes a Long Way

The Christmas Shoebox Project packs some Christmas spirit into shoeboxes for kids around the world. Shoeboxes are filled with goodies like toys, games, books, stationery and clothes, and then sent to needy children in places such as Africa, India and the Philippines. Over the past 10 years, 24 million shoeboxes have been filled and delivered, making it the world's biggest children's Christmas project!

Christmas Shoebox Project - How to Pack Your Shoebox

  • Find an empty shoebox. You don't have to wrap it, but it would be a nice festive touch! Just make sure you wrap the shoebox lid separately so that the contents can be checked.
  • Decide whether your gift will be for a boy or girl, and then choose an age category - two - four, five - nince, or 10-14.
  • Attach a label to the top of the shoebox and write down the age group and if it's for a boy or girl.
  • Fill your shoebox with stuff like books, school supplies, hats and T-shirts, hygiene items (like a toothbrush, toothpaste and a bar of soap), or toys (dolls, balls, small cars, stuffed animals). If your toy requires batteries, then throw 'em in the box too. You can also add a personal note and a photo of yourself so the child who receives your shoebox will know who it's from!
  • Don't include anything that's used, damaged, breakable, or perishable (like fruit).
  • Once you've filled your shoebox, drop it off at your school or a local charity.

I've liked the same guy for six years. I decided this year to finally get it off my chest and tell him. It took a lot of courage, and I was gonna do it the day before graduation... Except, little did I know, he went on a trip that day and I never got the chance. I then got his ######## and built up the nerve to add him. He hasn't added me back yet, and it's been a week! I shouldn't be as stressed out as I am. I can't stop thinking about him, but I'm not gonna see him for two months. Help?
