Taken from a fellow blogger Wendy http://castawaywithdreams.wordpress.com/2012/10/26/operation-christmas-child-and-a-shoebox-full-of-presents/ (thanks hun). It inspired me to join in on the fun and it is such a great cause 🙂
OCC is where you get a shoebox, fill it up with useful things and fun stuff- wrap it up and drop it off at a local drop off point (between 1st-18th November). Then they take it to one of many countries and give the box to a child who need a cheer and xmas spirit!
So I have my shoebox, decided it would be for a boy and inside so far are:
- felt tip pens
- pad of paper
- x2 flannels
- hairbrush and comb
- x2 toys
Will put in a bag of sweets and some other lovely things before wrapping it up!
If you would like to make up a shoebox- look at the website for details on what you can put in and drop off points 🙂 :-
