Christmas Shoebox Project

Not every child looks forward to Christmas! The effects of Covid-19 have resulted in job losses and financial pressures. This Christmas will be particularly hard for many families.

There is something we can do about making sure all kiwi kids have something to look forward to this Christmas. Last year the Catalytic Foundation partnered with 32 businesses and social groups around New Zealand,  to donate presents, and make sure 1556 more young New Zealanders had something to enjoy on Christmas. We’re looking to double that number this year and we need your help.

So.... gather your friends, clubmates and work colleagues and let’s get together and make a difference this Christmas.

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

1. Gather a team of 10 or more people 
2. Order the number of boxes you require (suggested donation $10/box) and we will drop the boxes to your home or workplace.
3. Fill your boxes using our handy list of recommended gifts, label them with the gender and age of the child to receive the gifts. We will arrange to pick the boxes up, and get them to a family in need.

Alternatively, if you would like to provide a full box(s) of Christmas presents for a child in need (valued at $50/box) donate to the Catalytic Foundation, acc #12-3067-0187344-00
