We got duped into sending a box through school. Had no idea at the time about the darker undertone of this charity and their bigoted ideology. We got an email from school this year after a complaint from a parent and saying they had a duty to inform parents that Samaritans Purse send literature out in those boxes and highlighting the Humanist Society's stance. As a married same sex parent I felt really upset since we too can be good Christians even if we don't go to church or appear to "conform". Anyway, the school has offered to send boxes via the Rotary Club instead.

I find this charity's methods distasteful and deceitful. As someone said, their volunteers may be lovely but it seems they aren't aware of the charity's ethos and when a volunteer doesn't conform you can see from the article how they are treated. Doesn't seem very kind or Christian to me.

They add a bible to the boxes and say it's a gift from God!! Much better shoebox appeals out there.

this was the company my sons school used last year and this year we are doing the same but a different company as there were 'issues' with samaritans purse. Not all as it should be
