Give the gift of play this Christmas

Make a Kiwi kid smile this Christmas

Get into the festive spirit with your team, and join the Christmas Shoebox Project. We're looking for businesses and groups who can help ensure that Kiwi kids living in hardship, won't go without a gift this December.

Many parents are needing to make the heartbreaking choice between food or presents - but that's where your crew comes in.

Fill boxes together or make a donation, and we'll deliver your life-changing gifts to local kids facing hardship, through our Endorsed charity partners across Aotearoa New Zealand.

How it works:

DONATE NEW SPORTS GEAR

Help a Kiwi kid feel like a champion by gifting new sporting equipment at participating PlaceMakers branches nationwide, and we'll include it in a Christmas box.  Thank you to the NZ Olympic Team and PlaceMakers for supporting the Christmas Shoebox Project.
