Christmas Shoebox Project

Let's ensure every child has a happy Christmas!

Many children are living in households where parents are needing to make the heartbreaking choice between food or a gift for their children at Christmas time. Through the Christmas Shoebox Project, you can help give Kiwi kids something to smile about during the festive season with boxes of gifts and essentials.

Changing a young New Zealander’s Christmas is as easy as 1,2,3

1. Gather your workplace, friends and family together to fill boxes with gifts.

2. Order the number of boxes you require (suggested donation $10/box) and we will courier the boxes to you or you can donate and we will fill a box for you.

3. Fill the boxes using our handy list of recommended gifts, label them with the gender and age of the child to receive the gifts. We arrange the pick up and distribution of boxes to a family in need.

Nationwide drop off centers:  Auckland (includes Tauranga, Waikato and Northland), Whanganui, Palmerston North, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin (includes Southland).
