OK, so I’m very organised this year. Last week I was reminded about Operation Christmas Child, which I always used to to do, but what with being here there and everywhere for the last 2-3 years, haven’t done. It’s a really nice scheme, and quite a lot of fun – as buying presents for kids always is
You fill a shoe-box with presents for a child from Africa, Eastern Europe or Central Asia (you don’t get to choose where the present goes, but do get to choose whether it’s for a boy/girl, and what age-group they are in.
- Instructions for how to pack the box
- What can be included
- Donate to cover transportation costs (and a video of some VERY excited children!)
It is possible that your box may be re-organised for more equitable distribution, especially if unsuitable items are included in a box, so please included appropriate items and wrap them nicely!
