The Shoebox of Love Programme (commonly known as ‘Shoebox’) is an initiative of Operation Shoebox, an independent, accredited non-profit organisation registered in South Africa. Founded in 2006, the 2022 Shoebox of Love drive will bring the number of children and pensioners to have benefitted from the programme to over 34 000 in the last 16 years.
Over the past 7 years the Anna Foundation and Shoebox have developed a wonderful relationship with the common goal of improving the lives of our rural children. The Shoeboxes of Love have become a highlight of the year for the Anna Foundation learners. We are very grateful for this beneficial initiative.
We have seen so much care going into each box, from the decorating of the boxes to the items chosen. Our children love the stickers and messages and ribbons decorating the boxes. We have, over the years, seen some of the most wonderful gifts given. Shoebox are an amazingly dedicated team. We are so grateful for their passion and perseverance that inspires others to pour out such love. Thank you guys, you are awesome.
Masikhule is immensely grateful to Shoebox for their wonderful initiative to distribute gift boxes to the underprivileged children in our community. The magic they bring is immeasurable – and the joy in the eyes of the kiddies is very special to all of us. We appreciate being part of your outreach!
