Operation Christmas Child

For several years, I have participated in "Operation Christmas Child", sponsored by Samaritan's Purse. This ministry is run by Franklin Graham, son of evangelist Billy Graham.
All you do, is fill a shoebox with gifts that will be sent to children various countries around the world. I am always moved when I see videos of these children receiving these shoeboxes. They are so thankful. To think, their entire Christmas is wrapped up in that little shoebox!! It is such a great thing to get kids involved in. In our country where we take so much for granted, it's such a lesson in gratitude and sharing to have them fill a box.
If you want more info, you can visit the Samritan's Purse website here. If you are someone who attends church with me, all the info is at church and you can drop off filled shoeboxes there also.
It's a wonderful, practical way that God's love is spread across the globe.
