Operation Christmas Child

This keeps popping up on Facebook, so since it is important to my friends and family it wins as today's subject. 

Operation Christmas Child is a collection effort by Samaritian's Purse International Relief in which you pack a shoebox full of gifts for a child's Christmas joy. November 15-22, 2010 is the National Collection week and you can search on the OCC site for a drop off location.

There are detailed instructions on how to pack the shoebox. Along with printable labels to designate if your gift is for a boy or girl, and a list of suggestions on what to put in the box. Shipping boxes to 130 countries around the world is expensive, so they also ask that you donate $7 in addition to each box that you donate.

If prayer is more your thing, they also have a Call to Prayer  in which you can commit to praying over the operation during collection week.

More information about Operataion Christmas Child can be found on their website.
