Operation Christmas Child! The Power Of A Simple Gift!

I just wanted to spread the news about an amazing charity that we love participating in! Operation Christmas Child is a charity outreach ran by Samaritan's Purse, which is headed by Franklin Graham. They take shoe box gifts to kids around the world who are in need physically, and spiritually. Churches, families, and individuals around the country fill shoe boxes, and then bring them to their local churches from Nov. 15th-Nov. 22nd. The boxes are then sent to Samaritan's purse and distributed throughout the world. We have done these boxes for many years, and this weekend we will be packing 4 of these, one for each of our children. You can select boy, or girl, and the age range that you want. One other nice feature is that you can pay for the shipping online now, and they will email you later in the year and tell you where your package went. Last year our two went to Peru. If you want to get involved or learn more go to the Operation Christmas Child website, or check out the video below.
