Packing a shoe box full of gifts changes a life of a child by sharing unconditional love in a tangible way,
Please remove all your packaging as the countries we go into do not have the resources or the training to recycle and everything that is rubbish ends up in and on the ground.
DON'T FORGET TO INCLUDE $9 FOR FREIGHT
