I am still thinking about that fill a shoe box with toys for poor kids at Christmas thread that appears to have vanished off the radar now.

I know people poured scorn on the charity in the original thread but does anyone know any more that are doing the same thing?, I am thinking it would be a good thing for schools to get involved in, they could do one or two shoeboxs per class with each child tasked with getting a particular item for the box such as crayons or soft toy.

I want to suggest it to my kids school but I wanted more charity suggestions first, you never know the school might do it.

My kids schools have always done this every year at Christmas. Different charity/cause each year but always for similar ages children. It's a great thing. If you google you'll find various places that run shoebox appeals.

Well at least I've raised £3 so far. £3 more than your shoebox appeal.

While the whole 'shoebox' thing maybe an inefficient way of giving if you have read the suggestions of things to put in them they are not all that bad

My link was because error said the other thread had vanished, that's all.
I agree that useful stuff would be ideal but the Ops original list (on the other thread) was 90% tat.

It maybe tat to you but I think its something a kid would enjoy far more then a pack of water purification tablets, and that goes both for the school kids building the box and the ones receiving it, kids needs toys and stuff.

Yes. A bath sponge and a colouring book will make all the difference to a child living in a ditch.

If you don't drink enough water, your blood pressure can drop to dangerous levels. Because blood carries oxygen throughout your body, your organs, like your heart and brain, would start to fail due to the lack of oxygen. Additionally, lack of water would also cause the concentration of electrolytes, such as sodium, to increase in your blood, which would cause seizures and comas.

Must be awful being that thirsty but too scared to drink the water because you don't want to develop typhoid fever or cholera.

But yeah, crayons sound cool instead of the water purification tablets.

Haha. Seriously though, I've been to V&A toy museum and there are toys cars made by African kids constructed from wire coat hangers. Not all African kids are on death's door. Kids will be kids wherever they are

There's poor kids all over the world anyway people have a hang up about dustbowls in Africa, I blame live aid. Look at Rio rich country just had the Olympics, tonnes of poor kids living in slums and I doubt the textile workers in Cambodia are spending there tuppence a day to buy their kids a ball, its nice to give em something better then a stick and a old tire to play with isnt it?

Only thing I've found online that I think is trusted is the salvation army Christmas appeal, thats not a box per say tho but again thats a religious organisation.
