Season of Giving: Operation Christmas Child

One of the ways our family likes to give during the holidays is to pack a shoebox {or two} for Operation Christmas Child.  OCC sends these shoeboxes to children around the world. 

Giving is as easy as 1-2-3:

1.  Use a standard size shoebox or plastic container {$.99 at Walmart} and purchase items to put into the shoebox.

2.  Wrap the boxes and pack with items.

3.  Print a label and attach it to the shoebox.  Place your $7 donation into the shoebox {this helps with shipping costs}.  If you make your donation online, you can follow your shoebox.  You will get an e-mail telling you the destination of your shoebox!  Find a drop off location nearest you or mail it to Samaritan's Purse, 801 Bamboo Rd., Boone, NC 28607.
