Santa Shoebox: Giving the gift of Christmas… to those that need it most! #Jacpod

Santa Shoebox Project

And with just 4 months to go to the 25 December… we need to start collecting now!


Poverty is like a punishment for a crime you didn’t commit… especially when we look at the children who suffer these circumstances. Every single child deserves to be loved, to be taken care of and to enjoy Christmas time.

The Santa Shoe Box, is an awesome initiative that aims to give underprivileged kids just that! Love, care & an amazing Christmas. South Africa’s best loved children’s charity has touched the lives of 762 594 underprivileged children throughout South Africa and Namibia.

The Project, which is now in it’s twelfth year, is an inspiring community initiative, that collects uniquely personalised gifts for underprivileged children. Equally, the project is about parents teaching their own children the Joy of Giving.

“When a donor pledges a Santa Shoebox, they promise a child the gift of self-worth and fulfilled potential. These are so much more than “just” a shoebox; each donor fills a decorated shoebox with 8 required items – a toothbrush and toothpaste, soap and a facecloth, school supplies, a toy, sweets and an outfit of clothing.”

The Santa Shoebox team join the Good Things Guy Jacpod to discuss the awesome initiative as well as the new App where you can track your gift, from Shoebox HQ to right under the Christmas tree.
