If you don’t know what I mean, basically that is what it is. Putting gifts into a shoe box!
OCC send these boxes to underprivileged children across the world. I used to find it so fun making these boxes and I even helped run the campaign four years ago at school. That was the last time I made a box and it wasn’t until recently I actually realised you can make your own box and hand it in locally – I never thought of doing it outside of school.
You can search your local drop off points on the OCC website here.
Here are some of the things I bought to put in the box.
Damn you Wilkinsons for putting ‘EVERYDAY VALUE’ on your products making me look stingy haha – I chose these products as then I could afford to put more items in the box.
In my box for a 5 – 9 year old girl I put:
– Sticker and colouring book
– Colouring book (#2)
– Felt pens
– Colouring pencils
– Fish shaped sharpener
– Panda cuddly toy
– Hair clips
– 2x Toothbrushes
– 2x Soaps
Things I added which are not pictured:
– More notepads
I know this isn’t a fashion or beauty related post and I haven’t been asked to promote the charity. I thought I would add the post to bring awareness to the charity and how you can help a child this Christmas! & how you can do if you are a student like me – Wilkinsons! It is also something I really enjoyed doing 🙂
The deadline for dropping off your boxes – 18th November
I bought the sweets below for the box but the best before date has to be after March 2013, this is only one day out but I didn’t want to risk it. On the brightside, I’ve got some starburst for myself now 😉 I’ve now replaced them now though so I’m not being selfish just keeping them to myself 😛
Here is my finished box! (now featuring a 4 pack of chewits which expire in october 2013!)
