This year, for the first time in the Project’s history, pledging will open a full month earlier than before – on 01 August. From this date, donors can select children who live in their area, thus supporting their own larger community.
South Africa’s best loved children’s charity has touched the lives of 762 594 underprivileged children throughout South Africa and Namibia. This year, the Project hopes to take another massive leap towards the magic million, and receive 115 000 lovingly created Shoeboxes.
When a donor pledges a Santa Shoebox, they promise a child the gift of self-worth and fulfilled potential. These are so much more than “just” a shoebox; each donor fills a decorated shoebox with 8 required items – a toothbrush and toothpaste, soap and a facecloth, school supplies, a toy, sweets and an outfit of clothing.
One year into our March To A Million, TIME is of the essence! Time is marching on and there’s no time like the present to become involved.
