SCIAF is set to launch the WEE BOX, BIG Change campaign for 2012 on Tuesday 21st February 2012. The campaign will focus on the Association of People with Disabilities (APD) in  Bangalore, India, a long standing partner of the Scottish aid agency.


SCIAF is asking people to order a WEE BOX, choose something to give up and then fill their WEE BOX with the money they would have spent. Easy peasy. The donations you make will help those in desperate need in India and across the developing world.


You can order your WEE BOX today and find out more about WEE BOX, BIG Change here.


Now to figure out what my vices are…
