Operation Christmas Child

A friend of mine, Jessica from is hosting a giveway sponsored by Operation Christmas Child. We as a family would do this via my kid's school. And this year despite the  fact my kids are in college or adult, I decided I would do this in honor of Justin and Jessica. Also, I was listening to Focus on the Family this week. They had an inspiring story of one of the receipients. A young girl who had to go to school with no shoes and there was snow on the ground (listen to FFOTF for the accurate details). Anyway, to make a long story short, God provided her with shoes. So, I was inspired by her story to once again participate and to provide shoes/sneakers for 2 little children. My husband had doubts that he could fit all the stuff in a shoe box, but I told him, "It will fit" thinking God will get it in there somehow and He did.

I do want to make one thing clear, you don't need to spend a lot of money in order to participate. Buy what you can and God will bless whoever with your gift. God is not concerned about the amount of money we spend but just our attitude in giving. So, find a shoebox and fill it up with new items for some little boy or girl. Check out OCC site for a list of things that are acceptable because these boxes do go around the world to many needy children.

Also, check out to enter into a drawing.
