Each year, we use the profits from our Packing Party product sales to fill and cover the shipping cost for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes and this year we made 23!
Shoebox #5 is called An Ocean of Love! and is for a 5-9 year old girl. Inside this ocean-themed shoebox gift is a crocheted jellyfish. In addition to her own toothbrush, comb, bar soap and washcloth, she will also find paper and a pencil case full of school supplies such as pencils, pens, crayons, colored pencils, eraser, sharpener, scissors and paper clips. An adorable octopus-print drawstring backpack keeps the oceanic theme going along with a small collection of sand toys. Pretty striped socks, a headband, hair clips, bracelets, stickers and a sewing kit are also inside! When it comes to toys, she will find a puzzle, bouncy ball, kazoo, mini Pick Up Sticks game, Tic Tac Toe, Go Fish card game and heart-shaped Slinky. Last of all, a small stuffed whale finger puppet and several squishy sea creatures will surely bring a smile to her face!
Thanks to everyone who have purchased and continue to purchase our Packing Party products! Together we will change the lives of children all over the world through the amazing power of a simple gift through Operation Christmas Child.
