Give and Makeup Shoebox Campaign 2016

Our campaign for 2016 is now live. As always, the children need all of the following:

Pyjamas, clothing, slippers, books, crayons, colouring books, suitable dvd's (they will be checked), toys, sweets, chocolate, magazines, comics, dolls - pretty much anything that you know a child/young person will appreciate.

Please ensure the following:
  • gifts are suitable for ages between newborn and 15
  • no toy weapons
  • no items of a religious nature
  • new or nearly new please 
  • boxes can be packed according to one child/gender or a mixture across all ages

Please send shoeboxes/similar sized packages to:

Give and Makeup
PO BOX 855
W4 4AW

I would politely request that you check all parcels have sufficient postage as per this post:

For the first time, this year's Shoebox Campaign has been brilliantly supported by the very talented and generous team at DewGibbons + Partners.

'DewGibbons + Partners are the beautiful thinking agency. Give and MakeUp addresses a cause very close to our hearts and is an initiative that deserves everyone's full attention, we couldn’t help but give it all of our support.'

I cannot thank them enough for their hard work, dedication, professionalism and generosity of time, talent and spirit.

THANK YOU EVERYONE! And Merry Christmas! 


  1. Caroline, you are amazing. Great video and excellent cause. Much love to you and the fab team helping these ladies and kids out.

  2. Hello Caroline that's such a lovely idea, my daughter is going to put a box together for someone of her age. I was just wondering if we can send a gift shoebox for the Mums too?

  3. I love Give and Make up and have already sent quite a few parcels. But I just had one returned to me, unopened. The "Parcel force" sticker says "Unwanted", but the adress is the right one, the package isn't too big and is easily carried, and I paid the full postage, Obvs. Have you guys changed adress?
