15 467 children.
Your chance to change the world!
Our philosophy is simple. We believe every child should be spoilt and loved, not only at all Christmas but all year round.
I love being able to share in the joy of giving at Christmas time. I have been involved for three seasons and it is wonderful to know that I am helping make a child’s Christmas more magical - Cathy Kilfoil

Welcome to Operation Shoebox
Each year we approach charities in Cape Town and ask them to submit lists of the children in their care. We then find sponsors to 'adopt' each child and make up a shoebox filled with Christmas goodies for them. Sponsors are supplied with the child's name and surname, age, gender, clothing and shoe size, and where possible a little snippet of information on their hobbies and interests. This enables you to personalise the contents of your shoebox.
We have drop-off points across Cape Town. Once you have made up your box you simply drop it off at your chosen drop-off point and we do the rest. You’re welcome to be involved in the sorting and distribution of the boxes, and in some instances, can meet your ‘adopted’ child via one of our Christmas Tree events.
