Our Christmas Shoe Box Bonanza for the Samaritan’s Purse
We really wanted to do more giving this Christmas and help those who are not as lucky as us. We read about the Samaritan’s Purse, Operation Christmas Child campaign – it really struck a chord with us and so we wanted to do our bit for this amazing cause so more children receive a special gift this Christmas. We each donated into a kitty to buy lots of toys, stationery and toiletries to fill each shoe box with. We all digged around at home to find lots of shoe boxes so we could get cracking with the packing!
We filled shoe boxes for both boys and girls of different ages to spread as much Christmas joy as possible. We included items such as toy cars, pens, colouring books, puzzles, toothpaste/toothbrushes and flannels. The whole team had so much fun getting stuck in and we even popped some Christmas songs on – yes, it’s only November, but we’re mega Christmas fans, and wrapping boxes in festive paper was just the perfect excuse! Here’s some of the team with their shoe boxes. We’re super excited to track their journey online and are delighted to spread joy to children around the world this Christmas.Are you getting involved in any Christmas charity projects this winter?
