Day 6 of Christmas

We support and take part in Operation Christmas Child. It was so fun taking Drew shopping to find toys for children who would otherwise have none on Christmas day. Operation Christmas Child is a wonderful organization but their collection week is was the November 14-21... so below are a two other great organizations that collect gifts for children in need.

Other Ideas 
(found via ehow.com)

• Donate through a school or a library that has a gift tree.

• Choose a family in need. There are plenty of families who are struggling to make ends meet, I am sure you can think of someone to bless this Christmas.

• Go through a church. Churches often donate Christmas gifts to children in need as they are typically aware of which families in the community can use the extra help. Call your church to see if they are collecting toys or, if possible, if they can direct you toward a family that you can provide gifts for anonymously.

• Donate to a hospital. Many hospitals collect toys to distribute to sick children, especially around Christmas.

  1. We LOVE doing the Christmas Child shoeboxes.
    One could also consider sponsoring a child all year long through Compassion International (www.compassion.com); then send along a little something for them! -Katie
