I LOVE Operation Christmas Child and last year managed to pack 45 good quality boxes for just $45 because I didn’t just start in November right before packing week.
It’s for that reason that we’re having our Second Annual Packing Party on 11/11/10. If you live in the Northwest Indiana/Chicagoland area please consider joining us, the details are here.
The tricky thing is while I’m able to hunt down bargains, it’s harder to hunt down donations of money which is why I’m throwing this out to my dear readers. Operation Christmas Child may not be something you’ve ever heard of but I’m asking you to give to it. If all of my email subscribers simply gave $1 each, I’d have enough money to pack thousands of shoeboxes. I’m not asking you each for the full packing fee of $7 but just whatever you can give.
There are two ways for you to donate:
1) Go HERE and donate online. Please leave a comment below or email me at mummydeals at yahoo to let me know how much. Do it anonymously but please let me know how much so I can count it in.
2) Send a check to Living Word Church c/o OCC Packing Party at 2248-186th Street, Lansing, IL 60438.
Sincerely, from the bottom of my heart I ask you to take a moment and give to this amazing organization. I would really appreciate it and I know the kids will too.
With much gratitude,
