The Digital Shoebox
Thank you for your contribution!

December is the perfect time to take a moment to give back to society and spread happiness. Through the Digital Shoebox, Deloitte is teaming up with several partners to provide food and drinks to the homeless and underprivileged community in Belgium. Together with you and our partners, we can distribute gifts to people in need, particularly in these times of increasing energy prices and inflation. Help us contribute to the initiative and donate a #DigitalShoebox!
Today, we’re joined by one of our key alliance partners, Salesforce to make an even greater impact. Wouldn’t it be great if this year we could help even more people, together?

How does it work

Deloitte has developed this platform where businesses and individuals can donate a #DigitalShoebox that will be distributed to people in need. Each box contains non-perishable, easy-to-open and directly consumable food, hygienic products, as well as festive items. The price of the boxes ranges from €7 to more than €100.

The shoeboxes will be distributed to various associations with the help of The Samaritans and the Belgium Federation of Food Banks. Every box has a big impact. To donate a gift, select an amount and spread joy this holiday season. The action is done in collaboration with the King Baudouin Foundation. Donations as from €40 will be tax deductible.

Last year, more than 1,000 shoeboxes amounting to a total value of almost €36,000 were donated.
