We'll let you know when sign-ups open. In the meantime, stay in touch by signing up to Pera's email list for good things worth sharing, Shoebox Christmas updates, and other ways we can help in our communities and world.


Shoebox Christmas delivers Christmas presents, wrapped in a shoebox, to kids who could do with an extra smile on Christmas Day. We do this by working alongside low decile schools, pre-schools, Women's Refuge, and community organisations.  

Step one.

Sign up and we'll tell you who to buy for, their age, interests and school. (We won't tell you their name, sorry!)



Step two.

You buy a great present that your kid will love, ideally something that can fit in a  shoebox, and wrap it up with love.

Step three.

You drop their present off their school, or post it, or arrange a Sunday pick up from your local sled driver. Easy as that!
