It’s just a shoebox . . .

Things to do this Christmas season:

1. Find a shoebox.
2. Pack with goodies
3. Send to a child somewhere in the world.

This has to be my most favorite thing to do each Christmas season! Our family sends two shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child through Samaritan’s Purse to two boys somewhere in the world who would not be able to experience any type of Christmas without it. When I see the videos on the Samaritan’s Purse website that shows the joy on these children’s faces when they open their shoeboxes, I weep every time. What a simple thing that we can do — a shoebox with toys and necessities, plus a $7 fee for shipping.

Would you consider joining me this month in sending a shoebox? All the information of how to pack a shoebox and drop off locations is located at the Samaritan’s Purse website, http://www.samaritanspurse.org. You can also watch the video ——-> to see what it’s all about.
