SHELTER BOX is a charity I hoped to raise some cash for next year in 2016 through selling my designs incorporating sea glass. Watch this space.
Founded here in Cornwall SHELTER BOX. is an amazing charity. They send aid to places of disaster all over the planet, providing immediate disaster relief & shelter in a BOX ......

"The 'ShelterBox' is tailored to each disaster, but typically contains a disaster relief tent, blankets, cooking and water purification equipment, tools, mosquito nets and children's packs......."

As a Tsunami survivor myself I have a real understanding of what they provide.
