Empty shoeboxes transformed into attractive Christmas present boxes

Every year the LFC collects and festively decorates empty shoeboxes, donated by individuals or shoe shops who are more than happy to get rid of their waste cardboard. It takes about 15 minutes to decorate each one by hand - as well as nimble fingers to neatly cut, glue and wrap the festive paper. Once the boxes have had their make-over, they are filled by the LFC members with age-appropriate presents. The LFC also organise their distribution via the different children’s charities, organisations and social services.

 

photoAppropriate presents

So what type of presents can a child expect to receive? The age range is approximately from 3 to 12. The presents are all brand new and the boxes contain at least one item from the following four categories: toys, educational, hygiene and clothing. Shockingly in a rich country, some children are so poor in Luxembourg they do not even have their own tooth brush or soap.
