We then spent all day sorting shipments boxes for various partner organisations right across Bulgaria. We met Jenny Lambert, from Reach Out Bulgaria, who was delighted to pick up a van load of boxes to give to children in orphanages in the east of the country. She told us the shoeboxes she'll give them will be the only toys they have - something that seems so hard for us to imagine.
It was a long, cold, hard slog but we got a lot of work done and we're very excited about tomorrow..here. And don't forget to check back tomorrow for photos and video from our first Christmas Box distributions. We can't wait!
