We are very excited to announce an innovative sponsorship for this year’s project, pledged by PEP, Southern Africa’s largest single brand retailer. PEP - who also provides a one-stop shop for donors to buy their Santa Shoebox contents, will sponsor 6000 cartons to transport the collected gift boxes to the various children’s homes, crèches, educare centres and places of safety across the country. In further support, PEP has pledged a monetary donation that will effectively be determined by the number of Santa Shoeboxes collected this year. Thank you PEP for this much needed sponsorship!

Last week Santa Shoe Boxes Irene' Pieters and Dee Boehner were featured among Nine South African women who were honored for their passion, vision, talent, enthusiasm and style. Please see the segment on Irene' and Dee below. For the full article go to www.timeslive.co.za.
'It takes courage to stand up and stand out," said Irene Pieters on Monday night at the Grace Hotel in Rosebank, Johannesburg, as she accepted accolades along with her partner Dee Boehner from emcee Alan Ford at the Glamour Women of the Year awards.
If that's true, then the nine South African women being honoured for their passion, vision, talent, enthusiasm and style are paragons of courage - there's no doubt that each of them stands out. When you put eight exceptional women in a room together (one was in Los Angeles, US), the glamour stakes just go up and up.
