Operation Christmas Child #OCCGiveBack

Operation Christmas Child box collection week is November 12-19!

Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child gives families the opportunity to think about how to give to others. The program gives those of us who cannot travel and serve the needy in another country… a way to make a difference. My girls and I recently put together a couple of boxes…

In a season of life when I feel like there is barely a chance to breathe, it is really good to bring in a little perspective. Am I too busy to help my kids learn about serving others? Can I really not carve out an hour to not only help create a blessing for a child across the globe, but to create an opportunity for my children to discover the art and value of giving… to steal from them the opportunity to discover the blessing of giving to others?

Samaritan’s Purse makes it so easy.

Does this effort really make a difference? In that case, you MUST watch this video. Or check out this happy kiddo!

Donation week is NOW. November 12-19, 2012. There is still time for you to make a difference a world away. So easy for us, and such a big thing for the children that receive a box.

The girls have our lids decorated… they each wrote a note…

Operation Christmas Child boxes
I printed out a picture of our family for each box… It seems there is a little more room in each, so I am going to pick up a couple extra goodies… then on Friday we’ll walk our boxes to our nearest donation location and make sure we say a prayer for the hands of each child our boxes land in.
