With the money raised, Shelterbox will provide boxes with materials needed for people to restart their lives. Johnson’s website explains more: “The boxes always include a top-quality tent, and they usually include stoves, blankets, water purification systems, and tools. This is true, life-saving stuff, hand-delivered by volunteers trained in survival techniques.”
