Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Challenge


I love Christmas, I absolutely do! There is no doubt, Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year and this Christmas I’m asking you to partner with me in the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Challenge.

Growing up it seemed as though there was a little less space under the tree each day as we got closer to Christmas Day. Boxes of all shapes and sizes seemed to magically appear while we were at school from our relatives who didn’t live in the same state.

These days joy comes from watching our kids, grand-kids, nieces, and nephews open the boxes we have placed under the tree. Yet, there are hundreds of thousands for children who would not have a gift to open on Christmas Day if Samaritan’s Purse had not created Operation Christmas Child.  Thanks to Samaritan’s Purse over 103 million shoe-boxes have been delivered to children all over the world since they began their ministry in 1993.
