Founded in 2000, ShelterBox provides relief efforts such as supplies and shelter for families affected by disasters. The charitable organization has established itself as a leader in its field and works to help a minimum of 50,000 displaced families each year.
Rather than distribute a standardized box of supplies, ShelterBox prepares eponymous ShelterBoxes that contain supplies relevant to the disaster and location where it occurred. For example, the organization sent over 10,000 sets of hats, gloves, and scarves to survivors of the 2011 earthquake in Japan. Each ShelterBox does contain some de facto provisions such as a tent able to hold up in inclement weather, a water purifier, tools, a stove and cooking utensils, and activity packs to keep children preoccupied.
