Operation Christmas Child

This year we are participating in

Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child.

Basically you choose the sex and age of the child,

pack a shoe box full of goodies,

pay a $7 donation to cover shipping costs,

and drop your box off to be shipped to a child somewhere in the world.

{you can read more about the organization here}

I let Avery make all the choices.

Of course she wanted a girl the same age as her!

We then headed off to Target to fill our box.

What did we get?

Here's a peek... For about $25 we were able to get:

a pair of PJ's, two pairs of socks, a coloring book & markers, a slinky (pink of course!), a pink ball, some sparkly hair clips, a princess necklace, a small toothpaste and toothbrush...and if you know Avery at all, the box would not be complete without a My Little Pony! We also threw in travel kleenex, a pack of gum and some dum dums. :)

Here is Avery with the packed up box, ready for drop-off!

I paid my donation on-line so that we will be able to track our box and see where it ends up.
Can't wait to hear where it goes and learn more about the little girl that gets it.
This was such a fun and neat way to kick-off the holiday season!
