Hungary’s Baptist Charity Aims To Collect 60,000 Gifts For Needy Children
Hungary’s Baptist Charity launched its annual “shoebox” initiative on Friday, aiming to collect 60,000 boxfuls of Christmas presents for poor children.

In the 16th year of the scheme, the organisers expect home-made gifts to arrive before Dec. 19, charity head Tibor Hari told a press conference.

The public is also encouraged to make small donations of 300 forints (EUR 0.9) by calling a charity number, he added. For the first time this year, the organisation has launched its initiative in Slovakia and the Netherlands, Hari said.
