Help fill Santa’s boxes

Your Baby & Toddler - - Baby Talk -

The Santa Shoe­box Project will be open­ing pledges a month ear­lier, on 1 Au­gust, to en­sure more needy chil­dren are pro­vided with a gift for Christ­mas. This char­ity has been go­ing for 12 years and has touched the lives of more than 700 000 un­der­priv­i­leged chil­dren through­out South Africa and Namibia. They’re hop­ing to get to 115 000 shoe­boxes this year. If you’re keen to be­come in­volved, go to www.san­tashoe­ to reg­is­ter (or up­date) your pro­file and make your pledge. Then you put your shoe­box to­gether, with all-new things (tooth­brush, tooth­paste, face­cloth, soap, toy, out­fit, school sup­plies, sweets plus the QR code you get when you pledge your box) and drop it off at one of the dis­tri­bu­tion points coun­try­wide. If you don’t have the time to do the shopping or live too far from the dis­tri­bu­tion points, you can also give a vir­tual box – there are 4 000 of th­ese avail­able.
