Around the holidays, tons of charities and organizations do a lot to help the community. Sometimes it’s as simple as preparing a meal for a family or providing a Christmas for kids that aren’t fortunate enough to have one. One charity that I wanted to bring attention to is Operation Christmas Child. I thought I’d tell you a little about what it is and what you can do!
Churches nationwide participate in this charity every year. To briefly describe what it is, the organization takes shoeboxes filled with toys and God’s Word and sends them to kids around the world such as in Africa and South America. There are a few drop off locations around the country if you want to make your own box! If these locations aren’t near you, several churches also take them and send them to the drop off locations for you! If you don’t even want to do that, you can simply pay to make one online.
The impact of these gifts are much bigger than you think. Hundreds of kids across the globe are being introduced to Jesus through these simple shoeboxes. You can watch several different stories online and listen to how lives were changed worldwide. I highly suggest you check it out!
Merry Christmas! – Chelsea
