Give a gift that really counts this Xmas

Already jaded by Xmas shopping? Does everyone you know seem to already ‘have it all’?

Join Andrew Grant in supporting this year’s Samaritan’s Purse ‘Operation Christmas Child’ by donating a box filled with treats, essentials and love for children around the world, and feel the real joy of giving.

Andrew Grant’s Worcester Foregate Street Head Office has been appointed as a designated drop off point for the scheme along with twelve of our regional branches (contact your local branch for information)

How do I create a shoebox?

Just pick a medium sized shoebox (or you can buy one online from the project) and decorate it with xmas paper, paints, crayons – whatever you fancy. Then choose a category for your  recipient (boy or girl, age group 2-4, 5-9 or 10-14), and fill the box with appropriate treats – a cuddly toy, a simple game, school supplies, personal care items, sweets and gifts. Click here for ideas and a guideline to the few which can’t be included due to customs restrictions.

You can also download a label which will allow you to track the country to which your gift is sent. Why not include a little personal note for your recipient, perhaps describing you and your family, add in a photo, or get the kids to draw a picture or write a poem?

Finally, the project asks that you include a donation of £5 (cash or a cheque in the box, or you can pay online) to cover costs and shipping, pop an elastic band around the box, and you’re ready to be Santa!

Our own staff will be joining in by creating boxes themselves, and by collecting your parcels in Andrew Grant offices branches from November 1st to 18th. If you like we’ll take a pic of you and your parcel and pop you on our Facebook page (you can also upload your own photo directly onto the Samaritan’s Purse website).

Send your love around the world, with us, this Christmas!
