Find a shoebox that does not exceed the size of 30cm wide x 40cm long x 15cm deep.
Cover the shoebox. The box and lid should be covered separately.
You may decorate the box with paint, stickers, paper and other art work, appropriate for the age of the child.
Write the age and gender of the child on the top right-hand corner of the box.
Write your name, surname and e-mail address on a piece of paper and put it on the lid of the box under the elastic band. This assists us with recording boxes dropped off.
Seal the box with only an elastic band so that the box can be easily opened to be checked.

1 wash cloth
1 bar of soap
