ShelterBoxShelterBox is an international disaster relief charity that provides emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world affected by disasters. They are firmly established at the forefront of disaster relief and their goal is to help 50,000 families every year. Since ShelterBox was founded 11 years ago, they responded to almost 200 natural or manmade disasters in over 75 different countries. Lifesaving aid was provided to over one million people.

Each large, green ShelterBox is tailored to a disaster, but typically contains a disaster relief tent for an extended family. Those items are: blankets, water storage and filtration equipment, cooking utensils, a stove, a basic tool kit, a children’s activity pack and other vital items. For more information about ShelterBox, visit their website http://www.shelterbox.org/.
