Update on The Shoebox Bagettes

February has been Accessories month over on our Facebook page. A bag is a great accessory for a shoebox and takes up very little room. The Shoebox Bagettes make bags in collaboration with The Green Bag Lady and send them in their shoeboxes. Here are some photos of shoeboxes that were sent in November 2016, complete with their Green Bag Lady bags.

The first two boxes were sent with Operation Christmas Child and went to Albania. The second two were sent with the Rotary Shoebox Scheme and we believe they went to Ukraine.

This shoebox was made for a boy aged 2-4 

This shoebox was made for a girl aged 10-14 

These two shoeboxes were made for teenage girls

4,000 today!


Big news from Facebook today - we now have 4,000 fans! 

I prefer to say 'members' as 'fans' sounds rather conceited :-)
