More than 15,000 ShelterBoxes have been distributed this year helping over 15,000 families made homeless by disasters around the world. In February, ShelterBox was named Charity of the Year out of 7,000 charities at the 2011 JustGiving Awards. ShelterBox volunteers and the organisation’s Founder and CEO Tom Henderson were awarded the President’s Volunteer Service Award (US) for their efforts to provide shelter, warmth and dignity to survivors of disasters worldwide. ShelterBox has grown on an international scale with over 20 affiliates around the globe and is now recognised as one of the most innovative and leading disaster relief agencies providing emergency shelter in the world. These are just some of ShelterBox’s highlights from 2011.
As the New Year approaches, to recognise all of the efforts from our workers, volunteers, donors and supporters, ShelterBox has produced an interactive magazine that reflects on the charity’s highlights throughout the year, which without any of you, wouldn’t have been achieved. Thank you.
