SCR supports Christmas in a box

Dear Stxmasinaboxudents,
As in previous years, the IUBH participates in the “Weihnachten im Schuhkarton”-collection (Christmas in a box) again this winter. People pack shoe boxes with little gifts for little children with things such as warm pieces of clothing, toys, writing tools, stuffed animals,… These gift boxes will be sent to children in need in Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania, Belarus, and many others.

We, the SCR, want to support this initiative by providing the students with an additional chance to contribute, in case they do not have the time to prepare a box themselves. The idea is to collect money and then pack the gifts in the name of the students. Little boxes for donations and additional information material can be found at the mensa, anno, Charly’s and the Student’s Office until Monday, Nov. 11th, 2 pm.

Help us help children in need!

Your SCR

Xmas in a box – be part of it!

Xmas in a boxImagine! It’s only 66 days until christmas. In other words – it’s high time to get all your presents together :-) Just kidding!

But there is one thing that really should not be postponed: It’s the christmas in a box campaign. The idea is simple and good: There are far too many children all over the world that can not unwrap any gifts under the christmas tree (some of them don’t even have a christmas tree). The christmas in a box campaign want to help those kids. It’s easy: Just pack a box, wrap it into wrapping paper and fill it with little things a boy or girl would like to have. You can choose some clothes like a scarf, a pair of knittens, a shirt or a pair of socks, also you could give a stuffed animal or toys (a ball, a doll, or a colouring book). Sometimes kids also need a tooth brush, or a towel or exercise books and a sharpener for the pens you give them. You can also give sweets, but be careful for any allergy reasons. The sweets should be best until at least March 2014.

Finally, write a short message, maybe with a picture of yourself to wish Merry Christmas.

That’s it. We think this is a great idea! XmasDog

Important to know
The boxes will be collected at the students’ office. For more information, please come to the library where you can find flyers, or go directly to the students’ office. The English homepage is to be found here, by the way…

Please join the campaign until November 13th!
