Print the Barcode

Print off your barcode and place it inside your shoebox. If you are donating for multiple shoeboxes, you only need to print one barcode and put it inside one of your boxes.

Step 3
Step 1

Place barcode in Box

Place your barcode inside your shoebox on top of the contents and put an elastic band around the box. We will scan your barcode and email you in January. You will receive one email for each country that your boxes are shipped to. If your boxes go to only one country, you will only receive one email.
