I wanted to share a beautiful little project that my twins preschool is getting involved in called Operation Christmas child.
It's an initiative set up by the Samaritans where they aim to hand deliver over 300,000 shoe box sized gifts at Christmas to children in some of the poorest countries of the world. You are asked to get your own children involved in the whole process and to include an item from each of the below categories
FILL EACH SHOEBOX WITH SIMPLE GIFTS
Include something from each of the 6 categories.
Something to wear
Something to play with
Something for school
Something to love
Something for personal hygiene
You then return your box to your local drop off zone and you can track its delivery online to see where your parcel is going to be distributed.
What an amazing opportunity to bring a smile and some happiness to a child living in conditions that we couldn't even imagine and at the same time teaching your own child the importance of caring for others. Such a beautiful project and I can't wait to start filling our shoe boxes. Follow the link below if you want to get involved.
