We’re five years old and still growing!
What started out as a simple dream of collecting and distributing shoeboxes filled with school supplies to less fortunate Filipino children grew into a beloved Christmas tradition in just a short span of time.
Led by marketing communications firm TeamAsia and the Information Technology and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP), My Dream in a Shoebox was created in 2009 with the goal of distributing shoeboxes filled with school supplies. Last year, we collected 12,526 shoeboxes, which were distributed to our beneficiaries in Babuyan Island, Bataan, Batangas, Benguet, Cagayan de Oro, Cavite, Davao, Iligan, Laguna, Muntinlupa, North Cotabato, Novaliches and Taguig. We also received a total of ₱870,170 in financial aid to help in building more classrooms.
In our fifth year, we’re urging more people to share their blessings as we extend our reach to more areas nationwide. Be part of My Dream in a Shoebox today, and in the spirit of holidays, prove that the best gifts indeed come in small packages.
