Gift It Forward Site with Creative Box & Rocketspark
Melissa and Josh, two local Cambridge residents are the Christmas Elves behind Waikato Shoebox Christmas - adding Christmas cheer to our kids in need in our Waikato community. As parents of two children themselves, they felt they wanted to do something special for the kids that don't receive much at Christmas time. Last year, 2020, they got to work and put the Waikato Shoebox Christmas to action with 350 shoebox gifts going out to recipients at Waikato schools and organisations. It was such a success Melissa and Josh have decided to continue Waikato Shoebox Christmas and keep passing on the joy.
This year Creative Box wanted to offer one non for profit organisation a free website build, this coincided beautifully with Rocketspark's free for a lifetime hosting for a non for profit initiative.
I love what Melissa and Josh do for our local kids and my own kids enjoyed making up the shoebox gifts last year. So I couldn't think of a better organisation to help. Now donors can easily register their interest in donating shoebox gifts via the website. Plus all the information such as the guidelines, ideas for gifts, drop off locations etc can all be located in one easy spot too.
