Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child LogoChristmas is approaching quickly. Maybe I am just trying to get the focus off what other people are celebrating next week. :) But it is actually not to early to bring this up. One thing Allison and I do every year is put together an Operation Christmas Child Shoebox.

Christmas Child with presentOperation Christmas Child is an ministry of Samaritan's Purse where people put together shoeboxs full of presents for children who would proabably not get anything this year. You can select the age and gender of the child you put the box together for.

Our plan is to get our kids involved to give them a heart for kids who are in need.This year we put together boxes for girls Rachel's age so she could relate more to putting this together. It was a lot of fun walking through the store and whatching her think through it.
