WHAT WE DO
We operate around the world changing the lives of deprived children, and their communities, through supporting education and healthcare, providing aid and delivering shoeboxes.
It is over 25 years since the Cooke family originated the idea of the Christmas Shoebox, asking children in the UK to fill shoeboxes with stocking fillers for Romanian orphans. In 2015, we celebrated the 25th Anniversary and returned to Cluj-Napoca, Romania to re-visit Dave’s original partner from 1990 Liviu Balas, and brought shoeboxes to the marginalised communities there. The current need is still extraordinary and the power of the shoebox has never faded.
