Ballyduff National School is proud to be involved in the very worthy shoebox appeal again this year. This initiative brings a Christmas present to poor children who live in the most impoverished areas of the world. The Christmas Shoebox Appeal helps children to gain a true understanding of how they can play an active role in empowering others and spreading some joy to those less fortunate than themselves.
Taking part is easy:
- Decorate a shoebox with Christmas paper
- Fill it with items referred to as the 4 W’s Wear/Write/Wash/Wow! (Wow includes sweets and toys, no soldiers/guns).
- Label the box with the label provided
- Return the box to the school
Below is an example of a decorated shoebox and some sample items that can be included in the box.
Further information regarding how to assemble and fill the box is available by following the following link: https://www.teamhope.ie/christmas-shoebox-appeal/how-to-fill-a-shoebox/
