Santa Shoebox Project


The Santa Shoebox Project is an inspiring community initiative of the Kidz2Kidz Trust, that co-ordinates the donation, collection and distribution of personalized gifts at Christmas time to underprivileged children across South Africa and Namibia.

Our aim is to start a very similar heart- warming project here in Zimbabwe on a small scale with the hope of growing each year. It should be noted that this project is not part of the Kids2Kids Trust project but simply the same idea. It is time we spare a thought for those less privileged than ourselves during this special time of the year. A lot of the time we get caught up in our own celebrations without a thought of those who may not have the means for such elaborate festivities. We ask that you think for a moment of those less fortunate and give them a small pleasure this festive season. You have no idea the delight these small gestures give to a child. The collections will go to a Primary School in Hwedza where there will be a Christmas party held for the children and the handover of presents will be done by 'Santa'. We ask you to help us make little hearts happy this Christmas!

image006 Find an empty shoebox

We all have shoe boxes around the house or know someone who will kindly give us one. Shoe stores usually have empty boxes to give away.

image008 Decorate the shoebox

Wrap the shoe box but please wrap the lid separately so that it can be lifted off. Be creative and instead of using conventional wrapping paper, decorate the box with drawings, paint, cut outs and stickers. By doing this, you are creating a unique "keep sake" box while at the same time, minimizing waste from wrapping paper that will only just need to be discarded.

image010 Fill the box with gifts
The following items are a guideline as we wish to keep the boxes as similar as possible and with the intent of promoting healthy living:


.         Toothpaste and tooth brush

.         Bar of soap and wash cloth

.         An outfit of clothing

.         Educational supplies

.         Sweets

.         A toy

ADDRESS: 5 Wellburn Drive, Ballantyne Park. Opposite Ballantyne Park Spar, green gate.


16 Ridgway South- entrance on Grosvenor.


18 Fernleigh road, Pomona.

DROP-OFF DAYS:  Friday 14th, Saturday 15th and Sunday the 16th December. 8am-6pm.

If you cannot make the drop off days please contact us and you may bring the gift on an alternate day or time. You can also always give the gift to a friend to drop off with us. The party will be held on the 17th December, so please make sure the gift has been handed in before that. We truly hope that there will be a big response to this project as it would be sad not to collect enough for the children of this underprivileged school who are so looking forward to the event. We are hoping to collect around 300 boxes. Thank you in advance for your support and kindness- your good deed is much appreciated!
