ShelterBox has been chosen as one of the three charities that the Telegraph Christmas Charity Appeal 2012 will support this festive season.
Over the past two decades readers of the newspaper have donated almost £22 million to dozens of deserving causes. This year, along with Motivation and the On Course Foundation, ShelterBox is one of the lucky charities that will benefit from the Christmas Charity Appeal. The newspaper coverage will help raise awareness for ShelterBox’s disaster relief efforts around the world.
Over the next two months, the Telegraph will feature a number of articles about ShelterBox: the people we have helped, our work and what we hope to achieve in the coming years. There will also be a phone-in day on Sunday December 9 where Telegraph staff man the phone lines to take donations from their readers.
ShelterBox Acting CEO John Leach said: 'We are thrilled that the Telegraph has selected ShelterBox as one of their chosen charities for their Christmas Charity Appeal this year. The money that Telegraph readers donate will have a lasting impact on our work and will help us reach even more people when disaster strikes.'
