The Santa Shoebox Project

It’s become tradition here at Green Grass Consulting to give back to the community every year on behalf of our amazing clients that continue to support us year after year! This year, our chosen charity was The Santa Shoebox Project.

The Santa Shoebox Project originated in Cape Town and has grown in leaps and bounds, with the number of Santa Shoeboxes growing from a humble 180 boxes in 2006 to an astounding 109 930 in 2014. To date (2015) The Santa Shoebox Project has distributed 456,004 shoeboxes throughout South Africa and Namibia. The boxes are distributed to more than 1000 recipient facilities, through more than 60 satellites around South Africa and Namibia. The success of the Project can largely be attributed to its personal nature – donors give gifts to children whose names, ages and genders are known.

Santa Shoebox Project National Coordinator, Irené Pieters says: ‘Our focus this year is really about ‘giving for good’. We want to do good by giving (good) top quality gift boxes to (good) deserving children – some of whom have never received a gift at Christmas time before, to create an overwhelmingly good experience that benefits them – for good.

This donation on your behalf, was a BIG THANK YOU for all your support.

It has been another great year and we could not have done it without your loyal support!

May you be blessed over the festive season, have a wonderful and well-deserved break, travel safely… and may 2016 be your best year yet!
