All it takes is a big heart, a shoebox full of gifts, a bit of time and a whole lot of prayer.
It’s National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child. Are you packing a shoebox or two to participate in the world’s largest Christmas project?
Tell your Operation Christmas Child story on video and share it on ShoeTube to inspire other shoe box packers! Don’t forget about the contest that ends on November 22nd – Samaritan’s Purse staff will choose three finalists, and supporters of Operation Christmas Child’s Facebook page will vote for their favorite video. The winner will travel with an Operation Christmas Child team in 2011 to distribute shoe box gifts to children. (Be sure to read the guidelines before submitting your video.)
