Help us make lots of hearts happy this Christmas. Yes it may seem a little early for Christmas but this takes some planning and some action. The Santa Shoebox Project started in 2006 and they co-ordinate the donation, collection and distribution of personalized gifts at Christmas time to underprivileged children across South Africa and Namibia. Participation is voluntary and personalized. Each donor pledges a Santa Shoebox by name, gender and age. There is a guidelines and essential criteria list (view it here!)
Cape Point Route has teamed up with PG TOPS Travel and Tours to make this year bigger and better and together we have set a target of 200 boxes to donate to kids. Each year we have a production team and a packing party and we are supported by the goodwill of clients, colleagues, suppliers, friends and family. Some send money, some wrap and some pack. Some check and some stack and carry and transport – some fight for scissors and some steal the sticky tape… some cook and support the packers… but it’s a whole lot of fun for a good cause.
But this year we need your help! Wanna- be do-gooders can help by sending your pledge and donation to Cape Point Route and we will do the rest in conjunction with PGTops. Remember the target is 200 boxes!
- R150 (or $20) will buy you a shoebox, which we will allocate on your behalf.
- We will pack it and send it to the Depot by the end of October!
- Payment can be done via EFT or Online Banking.
- Please email firstname.lastname@example.org advising how many boxes you would like to donate and your payment choice.
- We will send an invoice or online payment link.
What happens Next:
