2012 Donate to the Operation Christmas Child Program

This is the second year we have donated to Samaritan's Purse www.samaritanspurse.ca for the Operation Christmas Child program. Here was last year's post talking about what we put in the box http://www.chromiloamin.com/2011/11/donate-to-operation-christmas-child.htm. It's always a worthwhile cause to donate instead of just buying family gifts during Christmas. Don't know about you but that always stresses us out.

We will drop off one shoebox filled with toys, clothes, and school supplies for a 2-4 year old girl. As usual, we have also included a monetary donation on top of the $7 fee to cover shipment charges for the shoebox. Here are the items my wife was able to cram into the box this year. Can I just publicly say that she is awesome at all this especially under pressure. It's too bad the kids were already asleep when we put this together because they would have enjoyed preparing the gift box which contains:

- Lion plush toy
- Toothbrushes
- Bars of soap
- Crayons
- Pencils & princess pencil sharpener
- Shirt & dress
- Hair ties

This year we may have actually missed the deadline for the shoebox dropoff of November 16 but I hope there is an extension. Just go to their website to find the closest dropoff location to you, or call them per below:
