Who can argue with that headline? That’s why the Premier team are supporting the Samaritan’s Purse International ‘s Operation Christmas Child charity campaign this year.
The problem is complex. How to bring some much needed Festive Cheer to deprived children all over the world? The solution is simple… a shoe box! We just fill the box full of fun stuff, such as our promotional sparkie bear and mini rugby ball, and donate these goodies to the appeal.
We have packed and sent off 31 shoe boxes, one for each member of the Premier family, and hope they will bring an unexpected smile to the children who need it the most.
“The idea for us to support Operation Christmas Child actually came from my 10-year-old daughter Molly,” says Jamie Marshall, the founder and MD of Premier Print & Promotions. “Molly and her class mates have been asking their families and friends to donate gifts for the shoe boxes. I loved the idea as soon as I heard about it. It’s a great way of giving children in unfortunate circumstances something that really will help make a difference to their daily lives.”
Operation Christmas Child
Since 1993, over 124 million shoe box gifts have been delivered to children in 150 countries. This is an unconditional gift for children who are experiencing poverty, disaster, famine or war at Christmas. The shoe box is given to any child regardless of race or religion.
If you would like to contribute your own shoe box for the Samaritan’s Purse International’s Operation Christmas Child, please visit their website for more details on how to do it.
Merry Xmas! Yes, we know it’s still only November. But, as our customers already know, Premier like to be ahead of the rest with everything.
