Generic Virtual Santa Shoebox


Ensure a profoundly underprivileged child living in rural South Africa experiences joy, hope and love this year! Due to the lack of donors in remote areas, these children would otherwise not receive a Santa Shoebox and in most cases no gift at all.

Every VSS contains all 8 required items:

*Toothbrush & toothpaste – sponsored by Procter & Gamble
*Facecloth & soap
*Sweets – sponsored by Manhattan Sweets
*Toys – Sponsors include RNA Distribution, Bargain Books & Care for Education
*Stationery – Sponsors include Trefoil & Dala
*Clothing voucher – supplied by PEP Stores

As well as extra items –
  *A lunchbox and water bottle – sponsored by Addis
  *Always sanitary towels and Old Spice deodorant – sponsored by Procter & Gamble
  *Books – sponsored MySchool in partnership with Book Dash


The cheerfully printed Stor-Age Shoebox will then be packaged, delivered and personally handed to the beneficiary child.
