Yes, we know, Halloween isn’t even here yet so it may seem a bit early to think about Christmas. But it’s never the wrong time to help a child in need.

Luxembourg’s Christmas in a box comes a bit early in the season because it’s a gigantic effort to help more than 11.5 million children across the globe. Last year 1,314 boxes came from Luxembourg, with your help it will be even more in 2017! EVERY BOX COUNTS because every child matters!

There are four ways you can help:

1- Packing a box

2- Donating the contents for a box

3- Buying a packed box (25 – 30 Euros) plus 8 Euros transport costs

4- Donating money towards the transport of the boxes (8 Euros per box) 

Packing a Christmas In A Box:

First decide boy/girl and age group (2-4) (5-9) or (10-14) and then get shopping!

Every box should contain at least 1 of each of the below categories. All items must be NEW.

Winter Clothing
Scarf/ gloves/ hat/ socks

cuddly toy
cars/dolls/ lego
balls/ football with a pump
travel size board game

Hygiene Item
Toothbrush & Toothpaste
Facecloth & non-perfumed soap (soap must be packed in a small plastic bag)

School Items
Pencil case, markers, pencils, colours…
A5 exercise books

Chocolate/ sweets (exp date before 03. 2018)
Plain milk chocolate (no nuts or fillings) sucking and chewing sweets (no gelatine)

Personal Card/ letter

8 Euros in an envelope (the money covers transportation costs and will be taken out of the box)

Everything MUST be submitted by October 29, 2017.
