Operation Christmas Child

With everything going on last week, getting two books off to the publishers and working on new licensing collections for Something to Cherish®, I am very happy that I was able to find some time to finish packing my shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child!

This is a very special ministry to my family and me. What a joy it is to prepare a box of love that will be delivered to a child that is underprivileged and suffering in this life! No child should be without, especially when we can help provide simple and heartfelt gifts like this. Americans are blessed with so many material goods. It is the least we can do to share with families that are struggling to make ends meet whether they are in a hurricane disaster area on our U.S. coasts or survivors of wars in Africa and Iraq.

Each box has fun toys, hygiene items, school supplies and most importantly art supplies and musical instruments.

    I’ve participated the last two years in this campaign, which we also have here in Germany!
    I’ve written about it on my blog too…to spread the word and make more people become aware of how they can help!
