If you want to really capture the spirit of Christmas and make a child smile, there is still time to take part in the Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal and build a shoebox online.

Bringing joy and hope to children for whom poverty is an every-day reality in 13 countries across Africa and Eastern Europe is just a click away at www.teamhope.ie

So, if you missed the deadline to fill a shoebox at home – don’t worry! Team Hope’s partners in their destination countries are ready and waiting to fill it on your behalf and make sure it goes where it is needed most.

As well as bringing joy to so many children, the Shoebox Appeal also sends hope by making sure these children know that people are thinking about them this Christmas.

Local North Dublin Team Hope co-ordinator Nathalie Hand said, ‘We know people are busy and are juggling so much at this time of year, so we are especially grateful to all those who have donated already.  We just want to let people know – there’s still time to build a shoebox online and make a child smile this Christmas.”
