Boy Sends Gift Overseas and It Changes His Life 11 Years Later

Many families are familiar with the popular Christmas tradition of filling shoe boxes with toys, toiletries, and school supplies to donate to Operation Christmas Child. Around Thanksgiving time, churches and organizations garner volunteers to put the boxes together, getting them ready to send around the world to children considered to be at risk or in need.

Samaritan’s Purse partners with these churches and organizations to spread a little joy and cheer during Christmas time. 

According to Samaritan’s Purse, 135 million children in 150 countries have received a gift-filled box since the program began in 1993.
