Christmas Shoebox Appeal for Syrian Refugees

Help us reach a target of 500 Christmas/New Year boxes for Syrian refugee children!

Operation Christmas Child – shoeboxes full of presents for needy children

How to take part:
1. Find an old shoe box or ask for one at a shoe shop – they normally are helpful if they have spare boxes in their store room – ask “Mülteci çocuklar için hediye kutuları hazırlıyorum. Fazla ayakkabı kutusu var mı sizde?”
2. Cover the box in wrapping paper for Christmas/New Year for a child. (Cover the box and lid separately so the organisers can peep inside!)
3. Decide what age and whether you are packing for a boy or a girl.
4. Fill the box with gifts suitable for that age group.
5. Put a tag on the box lid saying the age and gender
6. Bring your box to Greenhouse by 14 December.

What to donate: NEW items only: toys, puzzles, hats, scarves, gloves, socks, crayons, pens, pencils, markers, play dough, headbands, combs, mini notebooks, balloons, sweets (with expiry date after January 2016), toothpaste and toothbrushes.

What NOT to donate: used items, food, fragile/glass items, make up

We are working directly with refugee projects in Istanbul so we can guarantee your donation will reach children in need and put a smile on their face this season.

Thank you!

The Kadıköy Kucukbakkalköy minibus  goes along the minibus road then turns left up Hilmi Paşa Cad. You can get off right outside our door. We are just before Zübeyde Hanım Parkı on the left.

If driving from the E5, take the Kozyatağı exit and folllow blue H hospital signs to Erenköy Ruh Sınır Hastanesi. After the hospital entrance take the next left (Hüseyin Avnıoğlu Sok). We are at the corner of this street and Hilmi Paşa Cad. Park outside our door!
