What is Operation Christmas Child?
Samaritan's Purse, more specifically Operation Christmas Child, is a charity that I care about. I have such a heart for children and I want to do something that will help the children of this world. Operation Christmas Child is a charity that accepts shoe box donations filled with everyday items we take for granted. Things like hygiene items, small toys, stuffed animals, school supplies, etc. can make a huge difference in a child's life. Each box represents the love of Jesus. The box represents love. When a box is given to a child, they receive everything in it as well as learn about who Jesus is and why he loves you. You can read more about it on their website.
Why did you choose Operation Christmas Child?
I have donated boxes in the past, but I want to do more. I believe that children are important and I am being called to help make a difference in a child's life. I have such a big heart for children. My goal is to use a portion of my sales to fill shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. A lot of the stories the children share really touch my heart and it makes me want to be apart of their story. I realize I take a lot of things I have for granted and I am so blessed to be living the life I am. It would be such a good feeling to know that I was able to help change someone's life. Here are some stories from children who have received a shoe box. My goal is to pack 50 shoe boxes, spending $20 per box. As a follower of Jesus, I believe I that my responsibility is helping others hear the word. Please help me make a difference!
Want to help?
There are so many different ways for people to help! As well as packing a shoe box, you can donate to their Christmas Catalog. The includes how you can get involved with Samaritan's Purse. The goal is to help serve and spread the love of Jesus.
