Shoebox appeal

You can make a difference.

Irish charity Team Hope, has again launched its online Christmas Shoebox Appeal, this year called “IT’S A SIMPLE GESTURE”. You can still help to make a vulnerable child overseas smile with buying an online shoebox for vulnerable children in Kenya. For €15 / £14, Team Hope will buy a meaningful shoebox gift in your name and get it into the hands of a child in Kenya.

“As an Irish charity helping vulnerable children in many places like Kenya, the children we support are amongst the poorest of the poor and a simple shoebox gift with educational and hygiene gifts, can literally mean life and hope” says Niall Barry, Executive Director of Team Hope in Dublin. “It’s a simple gesture” added Niall, “it won’t end poverty tomorrow but it will make a difference immediately, with children able to wash themselves and learn in school for example, as well as having some fun with a small toy”.

Anyone can get involved with our online Christmas Shoebox Appeal – “IT’S A SIMPLE GESTURE”. You can make an immediate difference by donating now, sharing your Christmas to help bring some hope and joy, making a child smile.

It’s a simple gesture, buying a shoebox gift through Team Hope, through their website. Team Hope’s secure online donation system will process your Credit/Debit Card details as well as your email so they can send you a receipt. Really – it’s a simple gesture yet can mean the world to a vulnerable child.
