Our Appeals

At The Shoebox Fairies we run yearlong campaigns as well as our annual Christmas Shoebox Appeal. Find out more about our current and upcoming campaigns below.

Mother & Baby Boxes

We run a Mother and Baby box scheme for new mums and new-borns in living in difficult financial and social circumstances. Our boxes provide them with essentials (and some treats) for their first few weeks on their parenting journey. We work with Public Health midwives and other organisations locally in our borough to distribute our boxes.

New Beginnings 

*Launching in January 2022*

Our campaign will focus on victims fleeing domestic abuse and asylum seekers leaving persecution who are hoping to start a new life. Our boxes will contain items, such as clothing, self care items and a personal attack alarm.

Christmas

Our biggest appeal by far! We use shoebox appeals to donate essential items to those living in difficult social and economic circumstances at Christmas time.  We collect boxes for children, young adults, older adults and those who are homeless.
