'Tis the time to give.....

Finding opportunities to give and show others love is really important to me and it is something I want my children to learn at an early age.....

One of the ways we have been able to get involved with being generous is 
Project Operation Christmas Child.

We have been involved as a church for the last 6 years. As part of my Children's Pastor role I co -ordinate this project.

This year we packed 100 shoeboxes full of goodies and love.   
 The months leading up to September a group of willing and creative ladies join together and we sew....

drawstring bags
pencil cases

we snip....
no sew scarves

we knit....
simple teddies

Then our church come together and buy a box and pack it...

exercise books
soap, face washers and toothbrushes
tennis balls
small toys, yoyo's , marbles
pencils , sharpeners
 The kids in our kids church run  the market days and together we give generously and donate to this worthy cause.

It is not too late if you would like to get involved. Check out their website for all the packing details and how you can get your box into the warehouse nearest you.



  1. Such a wonderful thing to get the kids involved involved with. Great learning experience.

  2. These are great! What a terrific effort to do 100! I used to do a bunch of these. When boys are bigger we will do some again I think! Love these boxes!

  3. What a great project - for the givers and the receivers.

  4. They are so much fun to do knowing that they will be much appreciated by the recipient..a great project!

  5. This was always one of my favorite things to do with our church. And the kids really got into it which was a joy to see.


Thanks for stopping by and saying Hi....I love having your support. I will do my best to pop back to you and say hi. xx
