Below is a list of the items that we would like to have in the boxes. If however you cannot put it all in we will try to supplement with other donations. On that note, if you are able to sponsor a few of a specific item we would also be very grateful.
Recent research shows that 8 out of 10 grade 4 children cannot read with comprehension in any language. We have therefore decided to include a book in place of toys this year. Our plans include starting a library next year to encourage a love for books.
- Tooth brush
- Bar of soap
- Face cloth
- And outfit of clothing
- School supplies (stationary)
- A book
Towards the end of September I will send you a label with the name of the child(ren) you chose to sponsor. Please print and paste the label which you received onto the box. If you wish you can only stick the label part, the tick list will then be removed before the boxes are handed out. Please tick off all the items that are in the box.
If all the items on the tick list are not in the box please make sure to wrap the lid separately so that it can be lifted off. We will try to supplement the gift with other donations received. Use ribbon or an elastic band to secure the lid. Nothing will be removed from the boxes!
