Laura & Duncan Pack Shoeboxes of Christmas Goodies for Kids

By Clare BruceFriday 21 Oct 2016

Laura and Duncan rolled up their sleeves and hit the Samaritan’s Purse headquarters this morning, for a breakfast broadcast with a difference: filling shoeboxes with Christmas gifts. The broadcast was part of Operation Christmas Child, an annual initiative in which Australians pack shoeboxes of small Christmas gifts for children in developing nations around the world.

Staff and volunteers joined in the fun, while Duncan and Laura completed various stunts including the ‘One More Box’ stacking challeng.

Duncan tried to deliver the complete experience to listeners by climbing into a box himself, ready to roll down a gravity-feed conveyer belt. His plan backfired, though, when he proved to be much too heavy (see video below)… Duncan will now be going on a pre-Christmas diet.
