Show your Socks 4 Syria!
Over 6 million children, women and men have now fled the worsening violence in Syria. These families have lost everything - the need now is greater than ever.
ShelterBox has already sent aid to support over 4,500 families in Syria, Iraqi Kurdistan, Lebanon and Jordan. With the harsh winter fast approaching, we want to provide shelter and other essential aid for a further 5,000 families fleeing the conflict in and around Syria. Your Socks 4 Syria event will help us achieve this.
The idea is simple. Ask everyone to wear silly, odd or colourful socks for the day and in return bring in a small donation. Easy! It’s fun to take part and your support will mean that Syrian children and their families will be able to stay safe, stay warm and stay together. Find out more here.
ShelterBox can visit you!
We have a fantastic network of speakers all over the country who kindly give up their time to talk to schools, scout groups and youth groups all about ShelterBox's fascinating work.
The speaker can bring with them a ShelterBox with all the equipment that goes inside, as well as set up the tent for the young people to see. The ShelterBox speaker will talk to your school or group all about how this equipment helps families who have lost everything in a disaster.
If you would like somebody to visit you, please get in touch
We will need at least 6 weeks notice to arrange a speaker for you.
Put the FUN into Fundraising!
If your school or youth group is thinking about fundraising for ShelterBox, we'd love to hear from you! For a little inspiration have a look at our A-Z of ideas on the left of this page. What crazy ideas will you come up with to help families affected by disaster?
We can send you lots of exciting materials to help your event be a great success. Posters, stickers, postcards, flyers and more all available.
Track your ShelterBox
After you've fundraised, we will send you a Box Number, this will mean that you can see exactly where your box goes! Try typing '5325' into the 'Track a Box' area at the top of the page and you will see that Cornwallis Academy's box went to Nigeria to assist those affected by flooding. Teachers tell us that children love to find out all about where their boxes go!
