Follow Your Box!

"OCC will collect millions of shoe box gifts – filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items – for the neediest children around the world!"

National Collection Week November 14 - 21

Operation Christmas Child is a favorite tradition of mine. I haven't done it every year, but this year it's a go! Today after seeing a few empty red and green boxes stacked at Chick-fil-A, I was even more excited.


Store bought items such as a small doll along with a girly toothbrush and more filled our special shoe box for one blessed little girl.

Bonus: On November 12th (Saturday) drop off a "filled" shoe box and receive a coupon for a free Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich.

I'm also excited that OCC has incorporated Follow Your Box.

"Make your shoe box donation online and learn about the country where your gift is going. Receive a special shoe box label included in your e-mail receipt."

For those pressed for time and still want to participate check out Build-A-Box where you can select items online and add a personal greeting with your photo.

What hasn't this ministry thought of?!

It's such an honor to share love with a child in a practical way far from here that has less, and wants less this Christmas than my child, but in need of much more. How can my heart and hands ignore this. I can't. I won't.
