Give the Gift of Christmas

The Journey of a Simple Shoebox Gift Begins With You


  • Operation Christmas Child with Samaritans’ Purse.
  • Pack a shoebox full of essentials to be sent to those in need, making Christmas a better time. If you don’t have time to pack your own shoebox, don’t panic, you can donate to send a pre packed box!


  • Place a rubber band around each closed shoebox and take it to a local drop-off location between 11th and 18th November.
  • Head to the website to find your nearest drop off location


  • You can pack online or at home.
  • Make sure you read all the details on the official website to find out any restrictions on items you can pack.
