How do we help?
In Noble Box, we inspire people to leave their well-known and safe environment and become heroes that change the world around them! How do we do that? First, our volunteers identify families affected by poverty, visit them and ask about what they need the most. We also inquire about their secret dreams! We, then, carefully select families based on the project requirements, while making sure that our help will not demoralize or hurt them.
We want to ensure that the Christmas box will inspire them to change their situation by a small, yet significant impulse that will make them act and fight to improve their lives! Then, we invite private donors to respond to specific needs of the poor families from their cities or neighborhoods. About a month before Christmas, a precise description of a family and their needs is placed in an anonymous database of our website. From there, donors can choose a family that they would like to assist by themselves or with a group of friends.
In Noble Box we help people to unite around something meaningful and important. This year alone, the average number of people preparing a box for one family was 35 people! Additionally, we assign a volunteer to each family and he or she will assist the donor during the entire process to make sure the cooperation will run as smoothly and effectively as possible.
The magic of the Noble Box
Between 10 and 11 December, our donors deliver completed boxes to our warehouse. Once the box has been processed, it is taken and directly delivered to the chosen family. That’s where the magic happens! The boxes are usually welcomed with enormous joy and excitement, words of gratitude or simply… lack of words and tears of emotions.
We make sure that our donors can share this special moment with us! At the end, they will receive a report from the event - a description of the family’s reaction to the gifts and the joy found on the faces! We also let families express their gratitude through a little gift the volunteer may pass on to the donor.
Who we are?
The founder of the Noble Box Project, Stowarzyszenie WIOSNA (SPRING Association), was established more than a decade ago (2001). We are a non-profit organization with a simple mission: to help and assist families that cannot afford a Christmas gift or their basic dreams. First and foremost, we want people to effectively help each other; therefore, our project connects families in need with donors and volunteers.
What distinguishes our organization from others is our efficiency. The value of aid has been gradually growing. The numbers tell it all! Last year alone, we helped and assisted over 18 960 families with a total aid value of whooping EUR 12,030,745!
We also successfully managed to involve world supporters! Thanks to our long-time friend, Jerzy Dudek, the Real Madrid soccer players volunteered themselves to take part in the Noble Box project by building a box for a polish family and financially supporting this campaign. We also received a special blessing from the Pope, Benedict XVI!
Not only Noble Box
Akademia Przyszlosci (Academy of the Future) teaches children how to win in school and in life. For 14 years Stowarzyszenie WIOSNA has been helping children, who despite their young age, are in difficult situations and need a helping hand. Akademia Przyszlosci works with children in the system of individual meetings, the so-called “1x1x1”: within one year, one child is provided with weekly help from one volunteer – a personal tutor. What makes the work particularly successful is the unique System of the Change Motivators – a proprietary methodology for individual work with a child.

The Spring Foundation, a US-based non-profit organization, is dedicated to improving the lives of less fortunate children and families in Poland. We bring together motivated volunteers and gracious donors with those who need it most – families and children in poverty. Through our partnership with Stowarzyszenie WIOSNA in Poland, we deploy a proven approach to providing assistance with long lasting results. Spring Foundation is based in Chicago. Our activities fall into one of two categories: Awareness Building and Fundraising.
