Operation Christmas Child is one of my favorite charities to be involved with around the holidays. If you haven’t heard of it, check out their website for more information! Click here! It is a great way to teach your own children about giving back this holiday season! Drop off week is November 16-23, and you can find local drop of places near you.
Simply put, it is a charity that sends boxes full of gifts around the world to children who otherwise wouldn’t get any and teaches them the true meaning of Christmas!
Here are a few examples of filled boxes for different age ranges and boy/girl..
