Everyone loves to receive a present at Christmas. But for many vulnerable children and families in Southeast Europe Christmas serves as a reminder of their isolation and poverty. By supporting FSCI’s Christmas box appeal you can help to spread joy to thousands of people, fight poverty and prevent modern slavery…
Follow our 2019 Christmas box distributions
The deadline for getting Christmas boxes to us for the 2019 appeal has now passed. Please come back later in 2020 for news about this year’s appeal.
Who Will Receive a Christmas Box?
How Do Christmas Boxes Help?
How can Christmas boxes help to prevent modern slavery?
We ask for a donation of £3 per box to help cover the cost of transporting and distributing your presents. Any surplus is used to help our long-term projects, such as the House of Opportunity, which prevents slavery and transforms the lives of vulnerable care leavers.
But a commitment of just £3 a month from you could help us to do even more.

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.
Help us bring joy at Christmas to some of the most vulnerable people in Southeast Europe.
