All of your wonderful shoeboxes have now left on their journeys to the people who will receive them but, when I drafted this article for PAX, I was surrounded by all 68 of them stacked in my living room for safe keeping.  It really is quite amazing just how much room 68 shoeboxes take up.  (Many more and I would have been in danger of losing sight of Christine)!!

A huge thank you to all of you who have contributed in so many ways by knitting, donating and actually doing all of the boxes. This year roughly of the boxes were for families and were for the elderly.  What a huge difference they are going to make to so many people (both young and old) once they arrive this Christmas.  So, on behalf of Link to Hope, THANK YOU EVERYONE.
