Monday, 7th November - Operation Christmas Child/Samaritans Purse



I finally finished making up my shoebox for Operation Christmas CHild but today had to make an additional £2.50 payment so that the box will be delivered!

I'll be dropping this off at the Shoezone shop in the Kennet Centre tomorrow!

Operation Christmas Child is the largest children's Christmas project in the world, run by the Christian charity Samaritan's Purse. We have been sending gift-filled shoeboxes to disadvantaged children around the world since 1990, bringing joy into the lives of over 80 million children.

Last year, over 500,000 people from across the UK and Ireland got involved - including many churches, schools and workplaces. Children and adults alike wrapped and packed around 1.12 million shoeboxes full of gifts and goodies, which were then sent to disadvantaged children across Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

  1. Can't believe that you've been doing this for almost a year now! Not long to go and you will have achieved your planned goal, that's great.xx

  2. Thank you Dannie - and thanks for reading. If it weren't for you, I don't think I would have got past February!
