The Shoebox ProjectThe Shoe Box Project collects and distributes gifts in the form of shoeboxes to women in shelters across Canada. Each shoebox is filled with necessities and a few added little luxuries that a woman would enjoy but would not splurge on for herself in difficult times. These shoeboxes let the women know they are special and not forgotten. Putting together a shoebox is easy and this small gesture of kindness is very much appreciated by its recipient. The goal is to brighten the days of women living in our country's shelters and let them know that their community does care about them.
Being in an industry that caters to women, we believe that it’s important to give back where possible. We’re blessed to work with exciting brands, products and attend events where we receive countless of goodies (many of which sit in our closets). These tiny items may bring a smile to someone’s face and we urge everyone to see what little treasures they may share. Our team has put together our own shoeboxes but are also encouraging our friends, families and valued contacts help out with extra shoebox items.
To our media friends, we would be grateful if you could contribute to this worthy cause by helping them get the word out about The Shoebox Project via editorial features, mentions, blog posts, tweets, etc. If you wish to create your own shoebox and feel the connection of giving from one person to another it would be greatly appreciated as well.
