1. THE BOX
- Please purchase a plastic box with a lid from Crazy Plastics or Plasticland, or the gift boxes from Mr Price Home that will fit all the items required.
- If you will be using a shoebox or any other cardboard box, please ensure that it is strong and sturdy. Please do not use cake boxes.
- Please do not use two small boxes and tie them together.
- This is a great project in which to involve your kids. Please, however, assist them in ensuring the boxes are neatly packed and decorated.
- You may decorate the box with paint, stickers, paper or other artwork which is appropriate for the age of the recipient.
- If you are wrapping your box in gift wrap, please wrap the lid and box separately.
- If you are using paint or glitter, please ensure that it is completely dry before dropping your box off. Please also ensure that stickers and other artwork used (e.g. beads, etc.) are well stuck on before dropping your box off.
- If your box is transparent please use tissue paper or gift wrap so that the items in the box are not visible.
- Please CLEARLY indicate the AGE and GENDER on a label on the TOP left of the lid of the box.
- Please ensure that the label is secure and will not fall off (please do not use sticky notes).
- Please remember to fill ALL items on the list in the box.
- Please do not give loose items as they may be lost.
- Please avoid adding extra items not included on the list as we aim to ensure that the boxes are equal and as fair as possible. The beneficiaries are so excited when they receive the boxes that they open them up immediately and children tend to compare their gifts. We want all our boxes to be comparable.
5. SEAL AND DROP OFF
- Seal your box with 2 elastic bands, so that the box can easily be opened to be checked.
- Distribution dates will be made available on the website. Bring along your families and join us in handing out the boxes.
