Santa Shoe Box

WOW what a fab few days that was.

It was exhausting

It was frustrating

It was a laugh

It brought us close to tears

The generosity of some people was over whelming.

Some shoe boxes were filled to capacity, with brand new clothing, watches, gift vouchers, packed with sweets, toys and educational items.

Some boxes were nearly empty with half a bar of soap and second hand toys, but these boxes meant the most to me, these boxes were donated by children who have very little but were prepared to give half of what they did have, inc half a bag of chips/sweets, to children less fortunate than themselves.

It was the least I could do, to give 4 days of my time to receive, check, amend and pack the shoe boxes ready for distribution at the celebration days to follow.

I've met some wonderful people, I've created a face book page that I hope you will all like and I've been asked to get more involved next year.!/pages/Santa-Shoebox-Pretoria/229623720435317
