The Santa Shoebox Project is a non-profit organization that collects Christmas gifts for the socially disadvantaged throughout South Africa, by way of a social and community network of families, friends, schools and churches.
In essence it is therefore also about children learning the joy of giving, by personally choosing and filling the gift boxes, and then decorating and labelling each with the recipient’s name.
