The Christmas season is almost here!

As we plan out our own celebrations and festivities here in New Zealand, around the globe, 104 million people will be spending Christmas without a home.

From families in the Philippines who are still recovering from the devastation of Super Typhoon Goni, which destroyed 90% of homes in the worst hit areas, to those in Syria, who continue to flee conflict, despite having nowhere to call home, as temperatures head well below zero, thousands will be going without the basic necessities.

But, this Christmas, you can honour someone special in your life, by paying it forward to help a person in need, with a ShelterBox Christmas Gift.

For as little as $20, you can provide families caught in the chaos of disaster with the gift of hygiene, safe drinking water, shelter, and much more.

Your gift is so much more than a canvas roof overhead, or a warm blanket to wrap a child in. It’s a good night’s sleep after an endless nightmare. It’s the only home a family may have for months. But, most of all, it’s the promise that the worst is over, and there’s a brighter future ahead.

The Gift of a ShelterBox

ShelterBox NZ Christmas Gift Appeal give the gift of a ShelterBox
When disaster strikes, families lose their homes, possessions and livelihoods.
Each ShelterBox provides a family with emergency shelter and other vital equipment, such as blankets, water filtration, and solar lights; to use while they are displaced. 
Give the gift of a new home to a family who has lost everything dear to them for $1500 this holiday season.
The box means so much. Now we have a place to live and the things to make our life better”
