Recipe for serving Christmas joy in Romania.

  • get other involved

  • fill a regular size shoebox up to 3.5 lbs using items listed below

  • wrap with love and gift paper

  • include $ 6.00 shipping cost per box for 3.5 lbs. For any box over 4 lbs please add an additional $ 2.00 per lbs

  • return to My Brother's Keeper by October 12th.


Please mark boy or girl on the outside of the box. If the box contains clothing or other articles that make it age specific, help us by indicating an age range on the box.
