Amidst the hustle and bustle of holiday preparations, the Giftbox Project stands as a beacon of hope, reminding us that just one gift box can bring joy to one more child.
Founded 25 years ago by local Tyrrian Livesley, the Giftbox Project is a heartwarming initiative that allows families to make a positive impact during the Christmas season. The project’s mission is simple yet powerful: to provide a wrapped box of various gifts to less fortunate children in Eastern Europe, many of whom live in dire conditions below the poverty line.
For a quarter of a century, the Giftbox Project has been spreading smiles and warmth, proving that the true essence of the holiday season lies in giving rather than receiving. This humanitarian appeal is a testament to the spirit of generosity that transcends borders and brings communities together.
Creating a gift box is a simple yet impactful way to contribute to this good cause. The project provides easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions and engaging videos on its website, ensuring that the process is accessible to everyone. Crafting a gift box has become a cherished tradition for many local families, a joyful activity that not only spreads love but also teaches children the importance of empathy and giving back.
Now is the time to act. Your contribution can make a world of difference in the life of a child this Christmas.
The Giftbox Project has designated collections points locally, including their headquarters in Founex, making it convenient for everyone to participate.
