About this campaign

Hello Friends,
For the past 5 years my family has been packing shoeboxes to bless children in need around the world. These shoeboxes are filled with personal care items, crafts and activities, clothing, toys and a personal note. I also had the opportunity to volunteer at the processing centre to prepare these shoeboxes for overseas shipment. It has been my desire for several years to have the opportunity to deliver these shoeboxes and now, it has come!

Mel and I, along with a team of 14 other volunteers, will be heading to El Salvador this Christmas. And what better time to bless these children than at Christmas, many of whom have never received a Christmas gift before. It will be so heart warming to see their faces light up when they open their shoebox. We hope to share the true meaning of Christmas and bring them some much needed love and happiness.

We thank you all for your prayers and support!
