Put a smile on a child's face this Christmas

Put a smile on a child’s face this Christmas.

The Gift Box Project was set up in 1996 and has cheered up Christmas for thousands of kids in the poorest parts of Europe every year.

For us here, in one of the richest areas of Europe, it’s simple – and affordable. 

Gift Box Project Put a smile on a child's face this Christmas

All you need to do is put a few things in a box so a child in either Moldova, Belarus or Ukraine will have something to open.

You’re asked to make sure the box contains items useful for school, such as pens, pencils, paper, exercise books and some basic toiletries – soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shower gel etc.

Tyrrian came into the studio to chat about the project with Mark and Katt.
