It’s time for Operation Christmas Child box building & shipping.
October 23rd, 2017 @ 11:15 am


I just made my last purchases last night for my Operation Christmas Child boxes. I participated last year and wanted to do it again. This year, I’m doing 4 boxes. I did a box for a 5-9 year girl, a 5-9 year old boy, a 10-14 year boy, and a 10-14 year old girl. I’ve bought the stuff for it throughout the year. I am sending necessities, like toothbrushes and soap, but I added some fun stuff for the kids. Boys are getting Rubik’s Cubes. All get a bear. All get a cup. The older girl is getting an additional stuffed animal. The younger girl is getting a couple of dolls. The boys are also getting some tools. I ordered reusable pads for the older girl. The younger girl is getting a hairbrush set.

I basically filled the shoe boxes with as much as I can. Some of the stuff is dollar store stuff; some of it is not. I still need to sit down and write a short note for the boxes. And pick up a couple of postcards like last year!

Last year, my boxes went to Mali. I don’t know where they will go this year. I know when I get the e-mail.
