The Shoebox Project (http://www.shoeboxproject.com/index.html) collects and distributes gifts in the form of shoeboxes to women in shelters in Canada. Each shoebox is filled with items valued at $50 that a woman would enjoy but would not splurge on for herself in difficult times.
With the money collected we were able to donate five shoe boxes, each containing toothpaste, toothbrush, floss, hat, gloves, scarf, a chocolate treat, and a $20 gift card from Walmart.
Giving is definitely better then receiving.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
