Christmas shoeboxes (2020) for Samaritan's Purse

 These Christmas shoeboxes for Samaritan's Purse were picked up yesterday for distribution to disadvantaged children to enjoy this Christmas. This year's locations for distribution I believe are Fiji, Cambodia, Vietnam and Madagascar and any of these 26 boxes could end up in any of these 4 locations.

Inside these Christmas shoeboxes are well-thought of items which I believe the recipients would love and enjoy. Each shoebox includes a handmade dress, undie, a pair of socks, a tote, 2 exercise books, 2 pens, a box of coloring pencils, a toothbrush, an eraser, a colour-me-card for a child to create their own work of art, a few buttons to wear and/or pin on their tote and a fabric picture Christmas greeting card.  For the handmade dresses most of which were donated, you can check them out here. A small sum was also donated for these boxes which you can find here. My sincere thank you to all those who contributed to this distribution.

Inspite of everything that has happened and still happening around us and around the world, it was nice and felt great to still be able to make a difference to the less fortunate kids this year.

Be safe everyone!
