Awwww!!!  The children at the Silistra Orphanage opening some of the 106 shoeboxes - Look at their little faces - We spend weeks filling their very first shoebox with all the goodies donated from people on Freecycle, friends and the mountain of stuff we bought ourself.  The Guides also fill 18 boxes for us. I had great fun cutting out shapes and decorating each box  [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] />mybulgariaportal. />com/users/1211/22/95/45/smiles/546233. />gif" border="0" alt="" />    

I took my inspiration from Jordan an 8 year old boy from Peterborough who donated the very first shoebox to us.  He had thought of everything.  He even decorated the box with cars and stars stickers and even marked it for a boy age 8.  He secured it with a elastic band.

It was a last minute project and worth every minute of the late nights or early mornings, just to see them smile  

Now we will do it all over again for 2010 (only better)

Oh you 2 certainly know how to light up the world, you have given those children what seems to us so little but is obvious that to them it means so much you only have to look at the smiles on their faces to see that you really did make their Christmas for them good luck for next year

Even a miserly 50p spent

can make a difference to these kids and help put a smile on their faces.

Surely that's worth 50p of anybody's money?
