There is always something happening with Love in a box...

On Saturday the 9th of December a team of scouts helped us very efficiently !

The HOME organization, which LIAB have supported for 15 years, came to retrieve the 300 packages prepared for them :)

Finally, Didier Chastagnier, from the organization Action Quartier de Mulhouse et Strasbourg found his boxes under the Christmas tree, standing in the Cathedral !

Smile filled faces of the British School representatives, the many boxes we have checked and sorted all season, the finally packed bags ready for delivery...can you believe we are approaching the end of this year's Love in a Box program!?

Yesterday was the last day of box checking and we are so grateful for all the support you have given us! We are truly blessed to have had generous donations and dedicated volunteers who worked so hard to make this year's program a success. Our heartfelt thank yous to all who make it possible for us to share joy. God bless you!

Last week of box checking and we couldn't be happier and excited! Just take a look at the beautiful smile on Marie from Sunday school as she delivers her boxes. What a joy! This is what Love in a box is all about!

We also had such a great pleasure welcoming our generous friends from l’amour en Boite Chevreuse who donated over 700 completed boxes at the Cathedral this Sunday after the eleven o’clock service. Thank you so much for this huge donation! And, much appreciation to Eric, who was generous enough to offer a guided tour of the Cathedral to the group.

We will continue being at the The American Cathedral in Paris between 10 am and 4pm all week until Saturday. We look forward to seeing you there!

Today was exciting and busy! We welcomed Le Répertoire de Gaspard who were excited to deliver their love in boxes made by children (supervised by their nannies) for other children.

Our volunteers also worked tirelessly to assemble more boxes, design greeting cards for each box and store the completed boxes in our basement...(do you see Father Christmas with his bag of goodies?)

At Love in a Box, sharing joy is our primary occupation and you are more than welcome to help...we will be at The American Cathedral in Paris until Saturday, and again next week, from 10 am to 4pm. See you soon!

Many thanks to Clairefontaine & Hachette Books for helping us share joy!

Wohoooo... we came, we checked boxes and we continue checking tomorrow from 10 am to 4pm. There are many boxes to check and we can use all the help we can get.

We can also use all the boxes we can get! We want to share joy with as many kids as possible this Christmas but we don't have many boxes for babies, 3 to 24 months old, and for teenagers. If you would love to help us share joy, kindly help us prepare a box or boxes...every box counts. If you do not have a box, you can still buy the contents and bring them to the cathedral, we have a tone of empty wrapped boxes. If you need a refresher for the boxes contents, follow this link http://amcathparis.com/love-in-a-box/

We thank you so much in advance and look forward to seeing you at The American Cathedral in Paris.

École Jeannine Manuel brought 435 boxes worth of joy to the Cathedral today! We are really grateful for all the support we get from the schools that support the Love in a Box program by filling hundreds of boxes yearly. However, you do not have to be a school or prepare hundreds of boxes, every box counts! Notice the little angel and her mom in the picture? You too can prepare a box and share joy!

Will you join us in this season of giving and sharing joy?

Love in a box Paris is a non-profit volunteer organization that collects and helps prepare holiday gift boxes to be delivered by various charities to children in France who are in need.

For too many children, our LIAB gift is the only one they will receive this holiday season. The boxes or backpacks are filled with many kinds of goodies, toys and practical gifts that will bring great joy to hundreds of children of all ages. We invite you and all others to participate in this cherished annual tradition to give more than a gift: a demonstration of love.

There are many ways in which everyone can participate in our LIAB Paris efforts, from donating contents for boxes, to wrapping and preparing them, or giving your time at our different events.

At the moment we are doing an empty shoe box dr​​ive​​, we are calling upon the Love in a Box community to help​ us collect as many shoe boxes as possible.​ ​Kindly drop off your empty shoe boxes at The American Cathedral in Paris, 23 Avenue George V, 75008, Paris. We encourage you all to join the celebration because it is the collective effort to share joy that enriches this activity the most!

Hello. When is the last day to drop off boxes? We were planning to come this weekend but can't with the new demonstrations planned by Gilets Jaunes. 😟
Can children (8 years old) come and help to check boxes?
The sharing has officially begun at Liab France with Ecole Jeannine Manuel delivering 400 boxes this morning!! Amazing job!
Le nom de l'amour. Le définition de l'amour: c'est un nom de vie très petit taille qui ne peut pas voir avec les yeux mais il y'a beaucoup de nom de l'amour: - conférence - vérité - l bagarre - bon histoire - la vie - problème de dodo - manque - souffrance
