So I know it's not Christmas time, but it's good to start thinking about what kind of giving you want to do throughout the holiday season. Samaritan's Purse has this program called Operation Christmas Child, where people can donate shoeboxes filled with small, inexpensive gifts to be distributed around the world to families whose parents can't afford to celebrate Christmas. They have really great, helpful guidelines here! Another great thing about this is it can be an art project. You get to decorate the shoe box with different things. It's good to know about this now because you can be on the look out for goodies to fill the boxes with!
