CSP: Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child : Around the world

Each year tons of shoe boxes are filled with toys, candy, and hygiene products for under-privileged kids all over the world.  Samaritan's Purse has a great ministry in the Christmas time that sends out boxes of things for kids, but also teaches them about Jesus.  I have personally participated in this ministry for about three years, and every year I am amazed at what it is doing in the lives of people from sending countries and people from receiving countries.  This project is super easy, cheap, and has a great impact.

What you do:

- Get a shoe box or plastic storage box

- Decide if you want to give your box to a girl or boy, and decide the age group; 2-4, 5-9, 10-14

- Pack your box with small items from the dollar store

- Optional: Write a hand written note to you child to put in the box.  If you include your address, they might write back

- Deliver the box in a drop off location near you.  The collection week is November 14-21

Thanks for reading
