Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child "brings joy and hope to needy children around the world through gift-filled shoe boxes and the Good News of God's love. Since 1993, more than 94 million shoe box gifts have been delivered to children in more than 130 countries". {Taken from Company Overview}

General information
Pack a shoe box with small toys, hygiene items and school supplies for a child 2-4, 5-9 or 10-14 and share the love of Jesus Christ. National Collection Week is November 12-19, 2012. {Taken from the facebook page}

This is such a good cause and I wanted to take part in this last year but never got around to it. So I thought 2012 was the year to do it! I'm very excited to take part and I will be packing a box for a girl aged 5 - 9. What a wonderful way to do something for someone in need over Christmas. Please have a look at their website and maybe you will be inspired to take part too.

If you want to get more information you can visit their facebook page or their website
"Changing the lives of children around the world, one box at a time" 

Will you be taking part this year?
