Operation Christmas Child 
Operation Christmas Child is a ministry through Samaritans Purse. The ministry collects shoe boxes filled with gifts and distributes them to children in need all over the world. There are monthly gift suggestions and in November all of the packed boxes are collected and sent to the packing facilities to be loaded up and shipped globally. You are free to pack with anything you like.  You can choose to pack for a girl or a boy and there are three age ranges: 2-4, 5-9 and 10-14. There are certain things that you CANNOT pack, such as, liquids, food, chocolate and toys that would promote war or violence. Click on the link to find out more about the ministry.
