I felt a wee bit of fall yesterday, or maybe I should say, A Little Less Summer and it reminded me … Christmas is coming!
If one – or a million! – are shipping presents by camel, by donkey, by canoe and by kayak, one needs to start their shopping early.
Operation Christmas Child’s Shoebox Collection Week is just 9 weeks away!
Are you wondering what to fill your boxes with?
Many thanks to Clip With Purpose for providing these detailed, creative lists:
Update March 2016:
Sadly computer chaos is afoot on the ClipWithPurpose website – linked above and elsewhere.
Please keep Mary and crew in prayer.
I printed them out and attached them to my grocery shopping clipboard, which reminds me:
TIP: By adding Operation Christmas Child to your weekly shopping list, and purchasing one or two items each week your box can fill pretty easily!
Just want a quick little something to pick up this week: Start your box with a pad of paper and a pencil or two.
Some children begin their education with simple gifts like a paper and pencil. Come to think of it, most of us did. 🙂

REALITY CHECK: My own kiddos may have grown into young adults, but it doesn’t mean I have to stay out of the toy department. See you there! 🙂
