Christmas Boxes

Sunday after church the kids came home and emptied their piggy banks to buy gifts for Operation Christmas Child. Our church does this project every year and the kids get so excited about doing it. What it is,  that they each get to fill a shoe box up with gifts for another child somewhere around the world. They get to choose the gender and age of the child which make it even better for them. The church then sends the boxes to Samaritan's Purse who will then disperse the boxes. It is so fun for them knowing that they are able to make another child happy on Christmas. They also include and written card for the child telling a little about themselves and that Jesus loves them. It's just a little way for them to realize that it is not all about them this time of the year. Have a blessed day!

Filling up their boxes with lots of goodies!
