The Shoebox Gift | Samaritan’s Purse

"A small shoebox can have a big impact. What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out of it is eternal."

Happy Saturday lovelies! A quick post today as I want to share with you a great cause called Operation Christmas Child by Samaritan’s Purse. When I was younger the church we attended use to take part in shoebox gift packages each year and this year I am participating again! 
Every child matters and Operation Christmas Child is a great way to spread love and joy to those who are less fortunate than we are.  

How does it work?
Get an empty standard size shoebox and wrap it in colourful Christmas wrapping paper for either a boy or girl. Fill the shoebox with lots of goodies such as cuddle toy, stationary, toothpaste etc and don’t forget to affix boy/girl able to the front of the box. Its time to take your shoebox to a local drop-off between now till 18th November. 

Here’s a few things I’ve packed into my shoebox to give you some ideas... 
The greatest joy of Christmas foe me is by giving and sharing the love and this is one of the ways I do it. I want to encourage you all to take part if you are interested as I know each shoebox will bring such a big smile to those who opens it! 
This doesn’t take much time to do nor much money so please give what you can! 

Hope you have a great weekend!
Much love,

  1. When I was in grade school, we also had shoebox gifts like this!

    1. Is a great idea right? I found out about this when I was a child too and stopped doing it from high school. Participating this year again made me think about my childhood when I would get excited picking out items for other kids. :)

  2. This. This is beautiful! A great gift, worth giving!
