Last year, 107,073 shoe boxes were donated and distributed to people in need through Blythswood. Wardie donated the superb total of 111 boxes. James Campbell, the Chief Executive of Blythswood, writes: “So often I have seen tears, tears of joy, when handing over Blythswood shoe boxes. To realise that someone cares for them, someone like you, whom they have never even met, can bring indescribable happiness … Your gifts have an impact which is both practical and personal. Young and old who receive boxes are helped to keep warm and clean. Their dignity is restored and their awareness renewed of what it is to love and be loved.”
Perhaps you would like to fill a shoe box this year and bring joy and happiness to many who have nothing and are unlikely to receive any other gift this Christmas. See Blythswood’s website for details. The final date for handing in filled boxes is Sunday 3rd November.
