The festive season is fast approaching and in the spirit of Christmas and spreading good cheer, Fraxion has pledged gifts to the Santa Shoe Box Project. We opted to donate gifts to boys between the ages of 10 and 14, festively decorated shoe boxes and hand-picked gifts including clothing, toys, educational supplies, toiletries, sweets and treats.
Santa Shoebox Project National Coordinator, Irené Pieters said: “Our focus this year is really about ‘giving for good’. We want to do good by giving (good) top quality gift boxes to deserving children – some of whom have never received a gift at Christmas time before, to create an overwhelmingly good experience that benefits them.”
“We’re delighted to take part in this initiative and contribute towards the Project’s drive to give festive season gifts to thousands of underprivileged children in Southern Africa,” said Fraxion CEO Stanton Jandrell.
The Santa Shoebox Project originated in Cape Town and has grown in leaps and bounds, with the number of Santa Shoeboxes growing from a humble 180 boxes in 2006 to an astounding 109 930 in 2014. The boxes are distributed to more than 1000 recipient facilities, through more than 60 satellites around South Africa and Namibia. The success of the Project can largely be attributed to its personal nature – donors give gifts to children whose names, ages and genders are known.
