Vika received a shoebox gift while living in an orphanage in Ukraine as a child, and now she packs shoeboxes to send to other children.
"I still remember that feeling of excitement and hope I had when we received our shoeboxes."
"When the teachers gathered us together in our classroom and told us about the gifts we were super excited. I remember that my shoebox had everything purple! I got a little doll, little notebook, toothpaste/toothbrush, soap, colouring book, a letter and a picture of a family. I also received chopsticks, hairbands, hairbrush, pencils, pen candy, and a little soft bear. It was awesome."
"Now it’s been almost 7 years since I started making shoeboxes to send to other children all over the world. I’ve been receiving emails and pictures from a 12-year-old girl in Uganda who got my shoebox last year."
"I can’t describe in words how blessed I am to be a part of this ministry. I’ve been there and I know what it feels like to have no parents, to have nothing. God is an awesome God, and I would like to encourage each one of you to take a little time and make a shoebox. To share hope and love with all these children around the world."
Thank you to those who supported us and donated a box full of gifts for a child. These will be distributed to children in third world countries, prior to Christmas.
