An Imaginational World for Kids

Samaritan’s Purse, Project Thanksgiving and Operation Christmas Child

YAY! It’s that time of year again! Grab your spookiest costume and head out for trick-or-treating!Bring that turkey out of the oven and munch it down, make yummy pumpkin pie and cranberry sauce to go with it!


We all love this time of year when we have a huge feast and stuff ourselves full of goodies. But you know, there are families all over the world who have never had a feast like that, they barely have anything to eat, and, sometimes, nothing at all!

Communities around the world are getting involved with Samaritan’s Purse. An organization that sends shoe boxes full of candy, toys and hygiene for the kids and parents who have nothing. The project is called, Operation Christmas Child. Every year 10s of thousands of kids and parents are fed because of love and generosity. Families all over the world take money out of Christmas presents and savings to donate a shoe box to fill with goodies and important stuff for the hurting families in places like Siberia, Iraq, and Liberia.

Thank you for posting the “follow a shoe box” information. Samaritan’s Purse does a wonderful job with this annual effort, with more than 8 million boxes to be collected this year. We’re starting our packing next week and working with local churches to maximize our reach.

I recently blogged about Operation Christmas Child, but did not know about the “follow a shoe box” feature the Web site is providing. This is a great way to show people what a gift can do! I’m filling two boxes (one for a boy and one for a girl) this year.
