SHOEBOX ACTION 2023
- FOR CHILDREN OF UKRAINE, HUNGARY & SERBIA

...

Creative You Charity

Like the years before, we are supporting the amazing initiative by GRENZENLOSE KINDERHILFE and Creative You is a drop-off point, where we collect your gifts till 17th December.

Thank you for your generous donations!

 

 

All you kind donors are asked to fill a shoebox with presents (toys, hygiene and beauty products for teens, sweets, stationery, school supplies or anything your child would be happy with for Xmas) and label it with the AGE and GENDER of the recipient - e.g. girl, 6 years old. You might also put in a personal message, a photo or a drawing.

ON TOP we also collect separately this year any already opened but not wanted beauty and hygiene products that our teenager recipients or their mums would be happy with: a perfume you don't like anymore, nail varnish you only used twice but the colour is out of fashion at the moment, same goes for hair products, body wash and lotion, facial products, period products: pads and tampons, anything you can think of, EXCEPT FOR applied-directly-on-skin products like used make-up, soap or roll-ons. (Happy to accept these too when unopened!)

 

How does the shoebox reach the children?

GRENZENLOSE KINDERHILFE delivers your gift directly into the hands of the children. Last year their trucks traveled 12'000 kms to sweeten the children's Christmas.

Thank you so much for your generous donations!
