spreading joy, serving women

Our mission is to provide the gift of joy to women in local shelters, transitional housing, and maternity homes at Christmas time in the form of a shoebox filled with small luxury items. 
Through this small gift, we hope to bring a smile to the face of a woman facing a difficult situation, and remind her that she is not forgotten by her community.




There are so many ways to get involved in The Gift of Joy Project and help brighten the holidays for a woman facing a difficult situation! From packing a box, to hosting a wrapping party, to spreading the word on social media, there are plenty of opportunities to have fun and give back to your community this Christmas. Find out more here.




Show us your boxes! We love to get ideas and      be inspired by the creativity and thoughtfulness put into making a shoebox. Share a picture of your shoebox on twitter or instagram using the hashtag #shoeboxjoy, and while you're there, follow us @giftofjoyPROJ.
