'Christmas Shoebox Drive' By Hungarian Baptist Aid
‘Cipősdoboz Akció’ ('Christmas Shoebox Drive' in English) is an annual charitable movement to collect and give Christmas gifts to disadvantaged children in Hungary.

The number one aim is to enable these children to have something which will bring a smile to their faces over the holiday period which will help that will make their lives easier, something that most of us take for granted who otherwise would have not gotten anything.

’Cipősdoboz akció’ was first organized in 2003 with the collaboration of Hungarian Baptist Aid (HBAid). At the time the gifts arrived from Western Europe, but from 2004, HBAid started the first Hungarian driven Operation.

Since then, more and more workplaces, schools and communities have joined the charity campaign, and HBAid now distributes more than 40,000 parcels of Christmas gifts to children in need.
