Why fundraise for ShelterBox?
Every year millions of people are displaced or made homeless by disasters. ShelterBox instantly responds to natural and manmade disaster by providing boxes of aid. Each ShelterBox provides and extended family with emergency shelter and vital equipment when they need it most.
By organising or taking part in an event that raises funds for ShelterBox you will be making a difference to people affected by disasters all over the world; providing them with shelter, warmth and dignity.
How your fundraising could help…
$100 warmth and protection
Nights can get cold and in certain parts of the world staying warm means survival. Thermal blankets and groundsheets help people stay warm once they have lost their homes
$500 shelter for a family
Having a space to call your home is invaluable. Our disaster relief tent is custom made and is designed to withstand extreme temperatures, high winds and heavy rainfall
$1500 a new start
A complete ShelterBox will provide a family with the shelter and other vital equipment they need to survive after a disaster and start rebuilding their lives
