ShelterBox At Home

Ways to support ShelterBox from the comfort of your own home

A message to you...

From Kieryn Deutrom, Volunteer Program Manager

ShelterBox offers a range of ways that you can promote ShelterBox from home – using your email, social media and phone!

While everyone is encouraged to work from home during the Covid-19 outbreak, I encourage you to take time to check-in on yourself and to connect with one another.

ShelterBox Australia Volunteer Facebook group is a great asset during this time and I strongly urge everyone to utilise this online community to share or post anything that could be of use. Online communities are in this together and we can all help to keep a smile on one another’s face.

I understand that moving towards online promotion and fundraising from home could be difficult for some people while others are looking for extra things to do themselves and with their family.

To help you navigate this time at home a little better, ShelterBox has pulled together some activities that you can easily do from the comfort of your home using your computer, email, social media and the phone.

Have kids? Check out our fun and educational ShelterBox activities, designed for children of all ages!

I thank you all for your continued support of ShelterBox Australia during this challenging time and I hope you enjoy the ShelterBox at Home Resources.

Take care,


Ensuring you keep safe and healthy doesn’t mean you can’t connect with one another.

Planning a virtual coffee meeting is a great way to touch base with a friend and see how you’re both doing.

Use FaceTime, WhatsApp, Zoom or Skype to connect with your friends and community during these challenging times (if you need help setting any of these up please contact us).

This can also be a time to talk about the lives of families who have been affected by natural disaster and conflict. Even while the true impacts of COVID-19 remain unclear we know that disasters are unpredictable, and it is a possibility that a disaster will occur in the coming months.

ShelterBox will still do everything to continue to support families after disaster.

ShelterBox and Coronavirus

Our Frontier Stoves are now obsolete, if you have one, they make great raffle prizes! Other prizes could be donated by your local community. Here’s some prize examples: 

ShelterBox will have a webpage dedicated to our online raffles and will promote all the raffles on our social media sites. Your promotion can be via your online community, friends and family, social networks, email lists, Rotary Clubs, and school and District newsletters.

If you would like to be one of the lucky few to host a ShelterBox raffle from home, please contact Kieryn as soon as you can.
