Each Christmas FSCI delivers thousands of shoeboxes filled with presents to some of the poorest people in Southeast Europe. Thanks to your wonderful generosity, we received an amazing 11,480 shoeboxes for distribution to poor and marginalised children and families in Bulgaria and Serbia during Christmas 2017.
The deadline for getting Christmas boxes to us for the 2017 appeal has now passed. Please come back later in 2018 for news about next year’s appeal.

Who Will Receive a Christmas Box?
How Do Christmas Boxes Help?
Can I join in with the appeal?
We would love to have your support, whether as an individual or a family or if you represent a school, church, business or community group. Our logistics coverage provides for collection hubs in Salisbury, Coventry and North London (Brent). If you are northeast of the M40, west of the M5 or east of the M/A23 do get in touch and we’ll see how we can get you involved.
How does the Christmas Box Appeal work?
Fill a shoebox
Find and wrap a shoebox and decide who you’d like the box to go to. Fill your box with goodies to make up a great present. Take your box to your participating school, church or organisation or bring it directly to us.
Get on the road
It takes four days and a lot of cost to get the boxes as far as Bulgaria. A £3.00 donation will help cover the transport and distribution of your box. This can be done online which will help cut admin costs and is easier for you.
Spread a little joy
We start giving out boxes about December 10th. Follow us via the buttons at the foot of this page as we deliver your presents to children and families in Bulgaria and Serbia.
What if I am unable to make a Christmas box but would still like to contribute?
You could help pay for the costs of getting boxes to children and families. A donation of £3.00 will pay for the transport of one box.
