Operation Christmas!

Its during this time of year that I try to take a step back; re-evauate my blessed life and remember how important it is to share love and a smile with all of mankind.  I have a great passion and love for Samaritan's Purse and all of the people that volunteer their time and donate money to such a great cause.  Samaritan's Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world.  Around this time of the year, Samaritan's Purse organizes Operation Christmas.  My family looks forward to this every year.   We collect all types of items throughout the year like small  toys/gifts/school supplies..ect. and place items into a shoe box  for children to enjoy all over the world.  Please visit the site to get more ideas and to see how you can help other people all over the world with such little time, effort and money.  Many churches and other club organizations make this their holiday project.  My church usually has a goal of 250 shoe boxes. Make this your  personal holiday project and make the difference for a child this Christmas.  The web site can also give you the drop off locations.  Be quick though, time is very limited, since collection deadlines are November 16-23rd.
