Have you wondered what the holidays are like on the other side of the world?

And what about the young victims of Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean?  Operation Christmas Child is an organization that delivers toys, small gifts and a prayer to children in poor communities around the globe. This organization’s main goal is to give every child a gift, via a shoebox,  who can’t get or afford one. Just this past September, Irma, a category 5 hurricane, slammed into the  Caribbean and Florida devastating both places, especially the Caribbean, leaving them in ruins. Operation Christmas Child announced that their main goal for this year was to give every child in the Caribbean a shoebox full of toys and necessities.  As of February 2017, the organization, partnering with ministries around the world in other countries, sent over 11.4 million shoebox gifts to children suffering from poverty, natural disasters, war, famine, and disease.

If you would like to help this holiday season, head to their website with the next seven days https://www.samaritanspurse.org. Look up Operation Christmas Child and see the requirements so you can make your own shoebox and donate it to the nearest drop off location. The locations of all the drop offs are on website. Try to help a child in need this holiday season, so a child,  just like you,  from a different part of the globe can have a happy holiday experience.
