Schoenmaatjes gezocht!
Datum Aktivität: 11/29/2016

Once again this year, the DISDH is pleased to support the charity “Stiftung Edukans” and its  "schoenmaatjes gezocht" campaign. In the last few years, we were able to deliver more than 100 shoeboxes each Christmas and hope that with your help and commitment, we will again achieve the same great result.

The campaign works as follows. Students fill shoeboxes with various items, in particular exercise books, pencils and other school supplies, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, stuffed animals or other small toys. The shoe boxes can be decorated and a personal message can be included. The shoe box becomes a welcomed and special gift for a child in a country such as Ghana, Moldavia or Albania or for refugees in Iraq. We think that this fundraising campaign encourages our pupils to think about other children and learn about their living conditions. They learn the joy of giving can take part in helping other children.

Your child can choose whether the shoebox will be sent to a boy or a girl. We will be collecting the shoeboxes in front of the school cafeteria and will then bring them to a collection centre which further organises the transport.

If your child would like to participate, the collection of shoeboxes will run until the Christmas holidays. The transport is secured by a contribution of 6 Euros (direct debit). Please insert the debit authorisation in the box. Please do not seal the shoebox as it will be checked by volunteers ensuring that there are no sweets or war toys included. You are welcome to submit the completed form in person.

You may obtain a flyer with the debit authorisation at the school office or on the Edukans website. The Edukans Foundation also accepts donations should you not wish to participate in the campaign but would like to help out. Please see the website to find more information and watch a short film.
