Looking at my shoe boxes
Recently I had to move everything out of my closet. I didn't realize how many shoes I owned until I moved the stack of boxes. To keep the shoes in good shape I've left them in the boxes. Once stacked it reached a height of about five feet high...or about 15 boxes worth of shoes, sandals and boots. Do I really need that many shoes?
Sharing the shoes and the boxes
The stack could help local women and far away children. I should donate some of my shoes to women who need them more than I. I can use the boxes to give Christmas to kids overseas.
Operation Christmas Child, a ministry of Samaritan Purse, brings Christmas hope to children in desperate situations around the world.
Since 1993, more than 61 million shoe boxes have been packed, shipped, and delivered across the globe. People of all ages can be involved in this simple, hands-on missions project while focusing on the true meaning of Christmas—Jesus Christ.
Today is the deadline for delivering packed shoe boxes to Operation Christmas Child. Sorry. I just learned that yesterday. But there's still time to help. Here's how.
Instead of filling a box you can provide help to Operation Christmas Child through Project Donations. It's an simple way to donate online. You simply select a project, such as Operation Christmas Child, and type in your gift amount. It's just one more way to extend Christmas.
