To get help with our project we decided to call “Team Hope”, the organisers of the large-scale project and they sent us leaflets and links to helpful resources and they also collected the boxes from our school. We also did a presentation in every class throughout our school to explain what the Shoebox Appeal is and quickly we began receiving many boxes.
Over the few weeks we had, we decided to create a tuck-shop, where students could purchase small items for their shoeboxes, at a low price. We posted many notifications on Schoology about the tuck-shop and we also created posters and leaflets, which caught many students' attention. In the end we received seventy shoeboxes—which we made a wall from!
We are very appreciative and thankful for everyone's support with our Action Project and a big thanks to our teacher Ms. Brennan for helping us to organise it.
You have made a child smile! Thank you! :-)
