Build a Shoebox Online

Now more than ever

Now more than ever, children need great joy! You can give boys and girls in need a tangible expression of God’s love through a gift-filled shoebox packed from your computer or handheld device. In just a few clicks, you can select toys and other fun items to include as well as a letter and photo to delight the heart of a child. 

Share the Gospel

After we pack and ship shoeboxes like yours overseas, local believers share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with children as they distribute them. As a result, families are reached, new churches are started, and communities are transformed. It all begins with you. Pack a shoebox online today!

About Jesus

Each shoebox you pack helps a local church around the world tell a child about Jesus, God’s Greatest Gift. Many of them will grow in their faith and learn how to tell friends and family about Him through our discipleship program called The Greatest Journey.

Proclaim the Gospel

In a new initiative, we are going island to island in the Pacific to take the Gospel to a half a million children over the next few years, as part of our commitment to “proclaim the Gospel to the whole creation” (Mark 16:15, ESV).

Unreached People

In sending the Gospel to the ends of the earth, we are also sharing God’s Word with dozens of unreached people groups and going to hard-toreach places to make His Name known.

Decisions for Christ

This has resulted in more than 2 million children making decisions for Christ and over 1,000 churches being started in one year! For example, there’s now a church in a remote village in Namibia among the Himba unreached people group
