Our church participated in Operation Christmas Child via Samaritan's Purse Organization this year. We were so excited to pick up our shoeboxes and talk to Carson about what we were going to do as a family to help others in need this Christmas. Before we went to the store to purchase the items we were going to put in our shoeboxes, I told Carson about other kids just like him who didn't have any toys. To my surprise, our little 2 year old picked out a ball at the store and said, "Doesn't have any toys!" He gets it!
We came home and got right to work packing our shoeboxes.
What a great opportunity to give to others, and for Carson to see what Christmas is really all about. Here is a short video on Operation Christmas Child. We can't wait to follow our box and hope to hear from the little boy God picked out for our shoebox to go to.
