Last year, the Slum2School Christmas Charity Tour was a success with over 400 children given gifts. BellaNaija was a proud supporter of the initiative. This year, the focus is on children who have been displaced – particularly children who live in IDP camps across Nigeria. Slum2School plans to reach out to 10,000 children across the following states: Lagos, Rivers, Kaduna, Borno and the Federal Capital Territory. This year our goal is to give out
The Christmas In a Box tour will run from the 15th of December to the 17th with the grand finale at the Slum2School premises in Yaba, Lagos.
What to expect on that day?

Here’s a little guide for the gifts
Each Christmas box is expected to have 4 to 6 lovely gifts (Toys, Clothes, Shoes, Lego, Snacks, games, story
books, non perishable items, any lovely gift etc ) for a particular child ( 3 to 14 years old)
PS: They do not have to be very expensive.
These are five steps to guide:
1. Look out for any empty carton, shoebox, provision carton or any type of box within your reach.
2. Put about 4 to 6 lovely gifts that can make a child’s Christmas memorable.
3. Use beautiful/Colorful wrapping sheets and seal it with a nice ribbon.
4. Write the content, age range and sex of the child whose gift you boxed.
PS: Each child can put together one or more boxes.
