The Big Box and Buy

18/05/2011
ShelterBox is about to launch its biggest fundraising and awareness event of the year between the 11th -18th of June, and we want you to get involved.

Imagine if you could turn boxes of things you no longer need, into boxes of lifesaving equipment that people desperately need, by selling your unwanted possessions in your very own Big Green Box Week- Big Box and Buy event.

According to research the average British Household owns a whopping £877 worth of unwanted items? Let’s get spring cleaning at school and at home so we can turn our old rubbish into the essential things a family would need to survive after a disaster.

Ex Blue Peter Presenter, Konnie Huq is leading an army of celebrities including Girls Aloud and Paloma Faith, who are all busy raiding their lofts to find items that can be sold to raise money for our disaster relief efforts around the world.

Konnie says ‘I’m really excited to be involved with this campaign and hope we can encourage as many people as possible to start selling their unwanted possessions and raising money for such a great cause.’

There are lots of ways that you can get involved with the Big Box and Buy.
