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!
