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
