Operation Christmas Child #shoeboxblitz

It is the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. Join us.

This year, Operation Christmas Child will hand-deliver some 8.5 million shoe box gifts to hurting kids worldwide.  Join us.


Operation Christmas Child uses whatever means necessary—truck, boat, plane, helicopter, bike, donkey, dog sled, even elephant—to bring shoe boxes to children in more than 100 countries.  Join us.


U.S. Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush have all packed Operation Christmas Child shoe box gifts for children in need.  Join us.


Praying that the next hands to touch our unique gifts would bring smiles . . . laughter . . . and a knowledge that if a complete stranger across the world loved their beating heart enough to send love in a box then so must the God of the universe.


Operation Christmas Child has generated more than 4,070 miles of smiles since 1993—enough smiles to reach from Anchorage to Miami. Join us.


If the 8.5 million shoe boxes collected in 2011 are stacked on top of each other, they would stand 146 times higher than Mt. Everest.  Join us.


Operation Christmas Child uses tracking technology that allows donors to “follow” their shoe box to find out the destination country where it will be hand-delivered to a child in need.  Join us.

All of my great facts . . . all thanks goes to Samaritan’s Purse. 

P.S.  Even Bono helps out.  And ya’ll know what I think about him.  Still waiting for the opportunity to invite he and his wife over for dinner.

Won’t you join us?
