One more box = one more happy child

Over the past 23 years, schools, companies, and individuals have donated gifts to thousands of needy children in orphanages, schools, hospitals, and to the many children who have just been abandoned or are living in appalling conditions.

Your Gift Boxes will go to help children in Moldavia, Belarus, Romania and Ukraine. So far this organization has made over 46,000 children happy, and last year 3,476 children alone!

For most, it was the first gift they had ever received; a very special unexpected present, bringing a sparkle to their eyes and unimaginable joy.

The Gift Boxes include items our children would probably not appreciate, such as toothbrushes and toothpaste, soap and school supplies but to these children they are all very important items that make their lives a little easier. Needless to say the children especially enjoy the sweets and toys!

Do you want to help? Then please make a Gift Box so even more needy children can have a surprise.

Wine cartons are strong and the right size just perfect for a gift box, please do gift wrap and then attach the customs list. A reusable bag attached helps the children carry their box home.
School bags/backpacks can be used instead of a wine box.
