The Impact of the Shoebox Appeal

Dear teachers and school children,

We cannot thank you enough for being a part of the Shoebox Appeal Project.  Your selfless acts of kindness have brought immense joy and warmth to the hearts of impoverished and displaced children in Romania and Ukraine.

The children in Ireland, with their kind hearts, collect and pack thousands of gifts for their less fortunate peers.  And BM Transport from Clones goes above and beyond by transporting these gifts to our depot in Romania, a distance of 3250 km, free of charge.  Your contributions have truly showcased the power of community and the impact we can make when we come together.

Our dedicated volunteers in Romania and Ukraine work tirelessly to ensure that these gifts reach the hands of those who need them the most.  We hope the attached photos of their happy faces will convey our gratitude better than words ever could.

We are incredibly grateful for your participation in this project and for making a difference in the lives of these children.  So, from the bottom of our hearts, we thank each and every one of you for being a part of this chain of humanity at its best.  Thank you for your generosity, compassion, and commitment.  We couldn’t have done this without you.

With sincere appreciation,

Conor Hughes and Crosscause volunteers
