If you do a shoebox each Christmas for Operation Christmas Child, now is the time to buy items for next year's box!
So many stores have cute stocking stuffer ideas and so many things on sale right now. Go ahead and stock up for next year.
And, if you have too much from stocking up now and during Back to School time, maybe you can make more than 1 box?
If you don't do a box, or have never done one before, why not? Visit Samaritan's Purse to find out more. Such an awesome ministry.
Here are some pictures of our box this year.
Big Sister made a few drawings to put in our box.
Notice at the top it says, "To Shoebox Person." LOVE.
We decided to do a box for an older boy after hearing someone at church talk about how the older boys are the ones that usually go without if there is not enough for all the kids in the village. That just broke my heart knowing that anyone has to go without.
