Project Shoebox-Let The Fun Begin

IMG_4191

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! The shopping has officially begun for Operation Christmas Child and this evening Mae and her special helper Beezus are beginning the separating, sorting, and organizing. We are taking stock of what we have and what we still need.  There is no way we could have gotten this far without the help of some special people and I want to take a moment to say Thank You.

Sommers Family Dentistry for a box of 144 toothbrushes!

Our local Cub Scouts for adopting 50 of our boxes and the children who will receive them!

Captain Montague’s Bed and Breakfast for donating 10% of each room reservation between now and November 15th!

On behalf of the children…Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

We are less than 100 boxes from our goal of 250! Praise God! The countdown is on though and we could still use school supplies (pencils, crayons, or colored pencils, small notebooks) small bars of soap, and will stuff as many small toys as we can into the boxes.  Let’s love on some kids!

The following video simultaneously breaks my heart and makes it rejoice at the same time.  Ralph and all of the kids like him are the reason we are doing this.

(I know the embedded videos don’t always show up in emails so here is the link https://youtu.be/4oLQIAkVhHg so that you don’t miss out.)

PS – Here is where this journey began in case you missed it and are wondering what I am going on and on about…Spreading Love with Toothpaste and Pencils
