It is that time of year. It is Operation Christmas Child time!
One of the new and upcoming artists that is not afraid to show his faith is helping pass the word this year about Operation Christmas Child. Please take a couple minutes and see Scotty McCreery showing how to pack shoe boxes.
As I wrote last year, I have been participating in Operation Christmas Child since I was in high school. I have always said, I can only imagine the kids reactions when they open up these boxes each year. A child may not get any other gift all year long except from this blessed shoe box filled with many gifts and even the gift of the gospel. How can we not participate? Check out the video I did last year with our shopping journey. As you will see it is not hard at all to shop for these wonderful and sweet children.
Need more gift ideas and what NOT to include in the boxes? Click here to check out a step-by-step guide. During National Collection Week, November 14 – 21, you can drop off your shoe box gifts at a location near you.
Let the fun begin and watch that special twinkle in your child’s eye. You can even follow your box after it leaves the Samaritan’s Purse headquarters.
Happy Shoe Box Packing and Have a Wonderful Merry Christmas!
