We sent out 92 boxes today, which included 40 boxes of Puma trainers, to Zambia, Gambia, Eastern Europe and South Africa. The really good news is that we have topped the 800 box barrier as we have so far sent out 815 boxes in 2011, approx 28,500 items of kit. Quite amazing when you think we have between us all unpacked many hundreds of bags/boxes, sorted and re-boxed this many individual items. Also 28,500 smiles across the world! Hope you like the photo, KitAid Santa's bringing happiness across the globe!!
