Shoebox Sunday is October 30!

In partnership with Christian radio stations across Australia and New Zealand, Samaritan’s Purse has developed a program that will encourage the general public to pack a shoebox and drop it off at your church if you agree to become a Drop Off Point for Shoebox Sunday, 30th October.

This year in partnership with Christian Media we are running a competition, where the prize is an opportunity for two people to travel to Cambodia and witness the joy experienced by the children receiving their shoeboxes.

The competition requires eligible entrants to tell us in 25 words or less, “why do you pack a shoebox?”.

Entries open on 15 September and close 27 October.
