Operation Christmas Child

The Christmas trees and decorations have found their way into the shops already, it must be nearly time!  This year Eva helped to pack our Operation Christmas Child box for a 2-4 year old girl.  This shoe box will be opened by a little girl who otherwise not have the opportunity to receive such gifts.

We watched a few videos of past box deliveries which seemed to explain it for Eva about the gift giving although the concept of another country is lost still.  I cried watching the videos.

We went shopping to choose items for the little girl and then came home to pack our shoebox.  I loved having Eva so involved this year.

Boxes from Australia go to South East Asia or the Pacific.  The instructions are here and the drop off locations are here if you would like to pack a shoebox.  Boxes are due by October 25th.

Eva does want to go “to the country please” to visit her little girl.  We will have to settle for watching videos!
