Contact between donors and recipients
Shoe Boxes of Love Inc operates on the principles of altruism. That is, that donations are made purely for the benefit of the recipient.
Shoe Boxes of Love Inc ensures all letters from donors, including contact details, are left within each donated box so that recipients can, if they wish, respond to their donors. We have heard wonderful stories of friendships being developed by donors and recipients. However, shoe boxes of love are a gift to affected residents and Shoe Boxes of Love Inc cannot and will not take any responsibility, nor place any requirement on recipients to respond to donors.
Shoe Boxes of Love Inc is not responsible for delivering responses from recipients to donors. By donating to Shoe Boxes of Love Inc, donors accept the severity of the situation for many recipients who have lost their or experienced damage to their homes, belongings, pets and in some cases, family and/or friends, and therefore respect the decisions of those recipients who wish not to respond.
