Operation Christmas Child is very near to my heart so I thought I’d give you some Operation Christmas Child Ideas. Each year here at Mummy Deals I host a HUGE packing party and last year we packed 1000 shoeboxes. Lots of people keep asking for ideas on what to put in the boxes so here ya go.
Operation Christmas Child is run by Samaritans Purse and in 2012 I had the privilege or traveling with them to Ecuador to deliver boxes While there I met a little boy called Sebastian and gave him a box my boys – Isaac and Chase – had packed. It brought tears to my eyes and his Mom’s. I may never meet her again but I know Jesus touched her heart through a simple gift for her child.
As a Mom there’s nothing greater than watching a friend help your child.
Would you join me in helping other parents help their kids by blessing them this Christmas?

My trip to Ecuador in 2012 to deliver shoeboxes was a blast! I blogged lots of photos for ya!
At the end of February 2012 I was very honored to have been asked to accompany the Operation Christmas Child team on a trip of a lifetime to Ecuador to help distribute shoeboxes to impoverished kids. Although Samaritan’s Purse works with many American relief projects, OCC is an international project delivering hope and Jesus to kids some of whom have never seen a toy and struggle daily to eat. Can you imagine?
