Operation Christmas Child #OCCGiving

I’m so excited to be partnering with BlogFrog and Operation Christmas Child to share of God’s great love for His Children all over the world!  We have been packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child for many years.  It is one of the highlights of the Christmas season in our home.  My kids and I have always loved packing a shoebox for needy children every Christmas season.   It has taught them to look beyond their own selves and into a hurting world that has much less than we do.   Now that they are much older I thought I would do something a little different….

So do you ever do something so dumb that you can’t even believe you did it?  Well I decided to pack a box with my 3 year old Grandson and got so excited about the whole process that I forgot to take pictures!!  We were just having so much fun that I didn’t even think of it until we had delivered our box!  Can you believe that?!  Oh brother..  In my panic and sorrow I remembered that BlogFrog had suggested a video that we could use for our post.  Thank you BlogFrog!!  After watching it,  I decided I loved it because it shows just what Operation Christmas Child is all about.  

Please take just a few minutes to watch this heart warming video with Scotty McCreery ~~

It takes no time at all to pack a shoebox for a needy child that would not receive a gift otherwise at Christmas time.  Share the love of Christ and receive the joy that only God can give..by giving :)
You can also give online at Operation Christmas Child and then follow your box all the way around the world until it reaches a child!  I’ve not done that but that would be fun too!!
After packing your Special Shoebox  find a dropoff location near you!
Have you ever packed a shoebox?  If so,  what did you put in it?

    Hi Shari,

    That’s something I’ve never done….but what an excellent idea! After all, the holiday season IS all about giving, and NOT receiving. Thanks for this post. :)

    Hey Shari,

    Somehow you’ve centered everything and the content and comment space takes up most of your blog. Did you mean to do this? I’ve done that before, and I had to look at all my tags and one of my (center) tags was not closed. Just something I noticed. 😉
