Share good news and great joy with impoverished children this Christmas season.

96three FM and Operation Christmas Child are partnering together to enable many children to receive a shoebox filled with gifts this Christmas.

Pledge a shoebox.

If you do not live in the Geelong area you can find the nearest pick up point here.


The shoebox you pack will very likely be the first gift the child has ever received
One more box = one more child reached with the unconditional love of God

Grab a shoebox

Packs of pre-printed shoeboxes can be picked up at the 96three studio or grab any average-size shoebox
and cover the box and lid separately with brightly coloured paper.

Choose boy or girl

Will you fill your shoebox with gifts for a girl or for a boy?
And what age? 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14
