The Box Appeal 2014

September 29, 2014

With just a little over two weeks left to contribute to the Box Appeal 2014 I wanted to bring it to your attention if you didn’t know about it already. I don’t want you to miss out of course.

You can read all about the charities info on their FB page, click here.

I don’t jump on every charity event in town but this one caught my attention- it is easy to contribute and I can do most of it whilst I do my weekly grocery shop. Perfect for us Mum’s on the go.

How to take part;

  • Pick up a Box Appeal box from one of the participating locations,
  • Go shopping for the items on the list,
  • <

  • Return your box full of goodies to the collection points by 15th October 2014,
  • Be pretty happy that your efforts will make someone smile 🙂

Shopping list;

  • T-Shirt
  • Cap
  • Disposable razor
  • Shaving Cream
  • Deodrant
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste,
  • Small hand towels
  • Comb
  • Soap
  • Shampoo
  • Talcum Powder

My box is almost complete!

In total it has cost me around 11 rials to fill…but…I have made sure to include some nice luxury products in there. It is possible to do it cheaper if you wanted, budget yourself around 10 rials.

In Muscat you can pick up a box from The Radisson Blu in Al Khuwair, The Merge 104.8 & Y Magaine offices in Seeb and The Flower Shop in Sabco Centre Qurum.

Easy peasy! What are you waiting for?! Pick up a box and get shopping 🙂

PS – If you want to go the extra mile upload a picture of you and your box to Instagram make sure to hashtag #UnSelfieRadissonBlu – they will donate 1 Euro for every picture tagged to the World Childhood Foundation.

    A very nice cause indeed.
    Only problem is that (and I am an excellent packer) I just can’t fit all the stuff in the small box. The small towel (unless its one of these face cloths) and a cap just take up too much space 🙁
