Christmas Shoebox Appeal – Join us as we move online for 2020!

How to take part in 2020

The annual Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal has moved for the first time to an online-only appeal for 2020, where people across Ireland are asked to #TeamUpForTeamHope by donating gift-filled shoeboxes for children affected by poverty.

Due to the impact of COVID-19 we’ve had to consider the health and safety of all our donors and volunteers. It won’t be possible to send gift-filled shoeboxes from Ireland this year but don’t worry – this year, we can make one for you!  Online shoebox donations will allow Team Hope’s network of local partners in Africa and Eastern Europe to buy items you have selected for your shoeboxes, which will then be delivered directly into the hands of children, bringing the same love, joy and excitement that you see every year.

So many of these shoebox gifts are the only present that a child will receive at Christmas. €20 euro will fill a box bit so many things: for school, to wash with, and to bring real smiles.

We’ll be launching a new look website on 1st September 2020 which will contain all the details on how you can take part. You’ll be able to ‘build-a-box’ online selecting some of your favourite items from the 4W’s as well as some great creative activity sheets which can be coloured in and uploaded with your donation – So watch this space!
