K.A.F.K.A.H. – 2018 Shoe Box Appeal
Loirston School is keen to support the charity, Kids Acting for Kids Abroad and Home (KAFKAH) again for the 13th year running. This year’s recipients will be the children of Kosovo whose lives have been disrupted by war. There are two ways that you can donate to the appeal. The first is to pack your own shoebox or just donate any of the items in a bag. The charity advises us that it is helpful if your box is labelled to state whether it is for a boy or a girl and for which age group – baby, 2-4, 5-7, 8-10, 10-12, 12-14 or teen, it would be most suited to.
We ask that if you are gift wrapping a box you should wrap the lid and box separately.
Donations can take the form of pens, pencils, rubbers, rulers, notepads, colouring items, games, CDs, tapes and especially toiletries, jewellery, hair/nail stuff, new clothes, socks, hats, gloves, toys, small cuddly toys, sweets – (please make sure that sweets are well in date) non chocolate is best. In fact, anything that can fit in a shoebox. Last year KAFKAH were particularly short of pencil sharpeners and toothpaste! Please do not include used cothes.
Each donation is greatly appreciated by the charity so please be assured that even bringing one item for a box is just as valuable a donation.
£2.00 on the box really helps towards the charity’s transportation costs (It cost £1550 to send the boxes last year).
KAFKAH are collecting the donations from school on 4th December so please hand in your donation prior to this date.
Thank you for your continued support.
