'Charity Box' -  Xmas Hamper For Hungarian Children
From the organisers: Charity Box - a fantastic program to give a Xmas meal to a family for Christmas. All we need is the ingredients.

We have a list of families, needed this help. I'm not sure you know, but just this year over 20.000 kids were replaced (lifted) from their families.  They stay at children's homes.

We have been talking to nursing staff at 4 of these institutions, and were told, kids sometimes can't go home, as parents can't meet the cost of covering their food for their holidays.

So they think it's better if they stay at the home. You can change this! One box is one happy family.

We can provide you the boxes. Just ask your colleagues, friends, family, if they can take part.

We would really appreciate, if you can put one full box together at least. Just choose from the list of suggested "ingredients" to fill up a box of 60x40x40. (Include a blanket, that's a big hit)

All boxes have a wonderful banner. We received the drawings from the RealPearl Foundation (Igazgyöngy Alapítvány - Berettyóújfalu) - see below.

They are a fantastic example of helping kids in deprived areas, through art. They can also help with the distribution of boxes, if we have more than we can manage.
