Shoey: Out of the Box
SHOEY THE SHOEBOX
Have you ever heard of Operation Christmas Child, or Link to Hope, or the Rotary Shoebox scheme? Every year, millions of shoeboxes containing gifts such as cuddly toys, pens, pencils, paper and basic toiletries, are sent to children in poor countries across the world as Christmas presents. This tale of hope is about an adorable shoebox called Shoey. Sitting in the factory waiting to be shipped out, Shoey has no idea that his adventures will take him halfway across the world – and back again, changing more than one person’s life in the process.
This short book (56 pages) is written in the style of a children’s book, but is aimed just as much at adults. It’s a story of human warmth with a moral dimension.
Shoey may be a work of fiction, but buying Shoey makes a real difference to children living in poverty. It costs £5 to ship a shoebox across the world, and from every sale of Shoey on this website, £2.50 will go to help deliver a shoebox to children living in real poverty. That means for every 2 copies of Shoey we sell, 1 child will receive an actual shoebox packed full of useful and hopefully life-changing gifts.
NB: This book contains a strong, evangelical Christian message throughout.
