Give the gift of hope this year.
For several years, my wife and I have participated in this great cause – through Operation Christmas Child, individuals can pack a shoebox full of toys and basic toiletries, then send the gift to a needy child, who in many cases, may have never received a gift like this in their life.
One things that hit me particularly hard this year, was a story about how much a simple toothbrush can mean to a child. Yes, in some locations, a hundred or more children may share one toothbrush.
I think I just might be able to give up eating one meal out this month to meet a need like this.
If you are interested in doing the same, you can find out more information, locations of drop off points, or even buy, create and ship a shoebox all online at: http://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/
It truly is a joy to be a blessing to others – I hope you will know that blessing this year, through any way you choose to give to others.
