Looking for a worthy cause to contribute to this weekend? This is the final weekend to donate to Operation Christmas Child, put on by Samaritan’s Purse. This is something we do every year. You can select whether or not you want to send a shoebox (or plastic bin) to a boy or girl and what age. We usually pick boys since we have so many! This year I took all the children shopping to pick out presents to fill our boxes with. You’d be surprised how much you can fit into a shoe box. Some of the things we put in were: T-shirt, hat, toothpaste, toothbrush, pencils, crayons, post-its, notepads, legos, matchbox cars, soap, washcloths, and hard candy. See? A lot will fit into a shoe box!
Here’s the kids before they filled the boxes! Notice the littlest one who really wanted all the stuff!
Here’s some of the stuff we put in there!
If you are interested, I think there is still time to fill up a box for a child of your choice. I hope that all of us who are blessed with so much will find a few different ways to share with others. Do you have something special you do each Christmas season? If you’d like to share, I’ll compile a list so others can have ideas. Diane
