    Christmas Shoebox Appeals 4th Jan 07 at 11:29 AM
    I just wanted to remind you all about the shoe box appeals around Christmas time. January sales would be an excellent time to buy little bits to go in some shoe boxes and you might not notice the extra cost, if you buy bits all through the year.

    I mention it now, as I forgot *hangs head in shame* last year, and missed the deadline date...so am DEFINATLY on a mission to make up as many shoeboxes as possible.

    The thing that spurred me on to post this now, was pictures of Romanian children receiving the shoeboxes in the local paper this morning. Their little faces brought a tear to my eye, and there and then I vowed never to forget it again!

    There are many organisations who run shoebox appeals, some with religious attachments and others without, I saw a fair few mentioned on here before Christmas, but for a general idea, the link above gives you an idea of what it entails.

    Well done to everyone who made a shoebox last year ... and just think if everyone on MSE made one shoe box, so many little kids Christmas's would be made so much brighter!
