The Shoebox Project for Women collects & distributes gift-filled Shoeboxes to women who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness in Canada, US and UK.

For women who have been displaced from their homes and estranged from their families, special occasions can be particularly challenging. Often, women report feeling disconnected from society, invisible and alone.  A Shoebox gift is a powerful reminder for a woman that she has not been forgotten and that she remains a valued and respected member of her community.

​For those giving gifts, The Shoebox Project is a tangible and creative opportunity to give back directly to someone in your very own community. It’s a small, simple gesture of kindness that has an immediate, positive impact on the woman who receives it.

One of the things I keep learning is that the secret of being happy is doing things for other people.
