What is the Shoebox Christmas shop?
The money raised by the store goes firstly to the costs of running Shoebox Christmas - a New Zealand based initiative delivering Christmas presents to kids in low decile schools - these are the kids who could do with an extra smile at Christmas time.
Throughout he Shoebox Christmas project we spend a lot of time talking about what kids like and figured if we can find the good stuff via suppliers overseas, and offer it to you cheaply, you might help the project by buying here instead of somewhere else.
What is Shoebox Christmas?
Shoebox Christmas is a project working with local low decile schools and the community, to deliver christmas presents to the kids who are most in need of an extra smile at Christmas time. in 2017 we delivered 4500 presents to kids in 32 schools and 4 womens's refuge centres. The project isn't funded by government, church, or any other organisation, it's run before and after work and family commitments by Pera. Money raised in the store will help make sure the project survives and stays sustainable.
Shoebox Christmas - what it's all about
Please be aware the products listed here ship from suppliers in NZ, Europe and China. We don't hold the stock - we order them from the supplier at wholesale and bulk prices. Orders can take up to 20 business days to arrive, and if you are ordering multiple items, they may be from different suppliers, so may come in seperate packaging. The good news is, that means they're usually cheaper than what you'll pay in the stores here!
