A small shoebox can have a big impact. What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out of it is eternal. Be a part of changing children's lives all over the world in Jesus' Name through the power of a simple gift with Operation Christmas Child.
Operation Christmas Child
Since 1993, Samaritan's Purse has delivered some 69 million gift-filled shoe boxes to boys and girls in more than 130 countries. A gift to Operation Christmas Child helps cover processing and shipping expenses and allows our teams to share the Good News of God’s love with children and their families.
In 1994, after hearing Franklin Graham speak about an orphaned Rwandan girl singing Jesus Loves Me, his mother Ruth Bell Graham had an idea-- to send little lamb music boxes to children worldwide. That little girl had lost everything, yet she found comfort and hope in knowing Jesus loved her. This season, pick up an OCC musical lamb at your nearest Parable Christian bookstore and help spread the hope! Click here to find a store near you: www.parable.com/store-locator... See MoreSee Less
“From all of my heart I am thanking you for such good presents. I bring up six children alone; my husband left me a couple of years ago. One of my children is an invalid. I do not have enough money to buy everything they want. My son wanted a car for a long time, and he found one in the box. The gifts are very good, thank you very much! Thank you for your help. I am praising God that he is good. Thank you for your kindness.” – Mother of shoebox recipients in Belarus
When you pack a shoebox gift, the children’s lives are not the only ones you touch. We’ve compiled a photo album to show you just a few of the mothers and children whose lives have been impacted by your shoebox gifts!
