Samartian's Purse


My daughter & I have volunteered at our church collecting shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child for the past 3 years. Operation Christmas Child is part of Samaritan's Purse, started by Franklin Graham, I believe back the 70's. It is so EASY! And so hard to imagine that children around the world may have never received a gift before, this could be the only gift in they see in their childhood. I have been filling shoe boxes for a long time and thought it would be good to get my daughter involved so she could realize that not all kids get gifts like we do in America.
Here is a link to their website and more info: http://www.samaritanspurse.org/index.php/OCC/

I just love the feeling that you get when you help someone else! It usually does more for you than for the other person :)
