 Include blank stationery with a pre-addressed return envelope in your shoebox.

(No stamps, please. There are international laws to follow.)
Return Stationery


Wrap your shoebox all pretty, if you want to.

(If our shoeboxes get wrapped, it’s only because my husband is a master wrapper and I … well … I can wrap, I just don’t like to. Gotta stick with what I can do well rather than fret about what I’d rather not. 😉 )

Wrapping Paper


Paper is a world changing substance.
Just think of the lives – including your own – which have been touched by paper.
