Operation Christmas Child

I know, I know – there’s still all that Halloween Stuff in the stores, so we can’t think about Christmas yet….

…except for just this one time, okay?

Operation Christmas Child is a fast, simple, and practical way that you can help out kids living in poverty in developing nations.

I mean, you just bought some new shoes, didn’t you? And they came in a box?
Right then, you’re already halfway there!

Pick a specific gender and age range: 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14.  Mark the correct age category on the label, and tape the label to the top of your box. [ download a label here ] and then fill the box with “stocking stuffers” – lots of little bits of pleasure for a child to enjoy – little toys, school supplies, luxuries we consider as everyday items, like soap and toothpaste, candy, hairclips,socks, etc. [more ideas]

Check out the linky for more details about how it works, where to drop off your shoebox full of joy, and more.

And, if you didn’t just buy shoes, you can have a shoebox filled and shipped for you here.

There. Now you can tell anyone who cares that you’ve already made a start on your Christmas shopping.

Thanks for your generosity!
