Operation Christmas Child

it's that time of year again ... time to pack a shoebox for little ones who don't usually get gifts at Christmas ... samaritan's purse  (http://www.samaritanspurse.org)  has been doing this for years now ... and so have we ... i love packing a box with school supplies, hygiene products, toys, hard candy - knowing it will be opened in some place like haiti - where the need is great ... samaritan's purse also includes the gospel message with each box ...

mid november is the deadline (there abouts) ... i have my boxes almost ready - i just need to add a few more items ...

if you haven't packed a box before - it is a good project to do with family, friends or just ' cause you want to! ...

blessings on ya!

Yes, this is something our
family enjoys doing too.
It's very rewarding to think
you can help children have
something to look forward
to on Christmas morning.
Every child wants to have
presents for Christmas.

We've done this before and it's really fun to see how much you can get in a box, and picture how happy it will make a child!

Children in India get these boxes. Makes them very excied. I know churches who distribute them.
